Edward Snowden: saving us from the United Stasi of America | Daniel Ellsberg | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk.

Daneil Ellsberg, of Pentagon Papers fame, lays out why this leak was necessary and the hope that it will roll back the Presidential coup and perhaps move us toward restoring the Constitution.

We throw out the word hero so often that it has lost much of its meaning, but Snowden is a hero in the classical sense. I suspect that we all owe him a debt of gratitude that we have no means to repay.
