Anyone know if this is a paying gig? I understand Snowden has been having cash flow problems.


#4

So have I.

No, it is not "a paying gig."


#5

Shame. Still, good on him.


#6

Whoa. He'd better watch out, the CIA open files on people who get involved with leftist organisations like that.


#7

I'm sure a lot depends on what happens as a result of his whistleblowing (or doesn't), and what he does with his time from this point out (all things considered), but I would suspect he's a contender for a Nobel Peace Prize(?).


#8

I don't believe Mr. Obama is using his; perhaps it could be repurposed?


#9

Unfortunately, not under the current rules.

They date from a time when the Nobel Peace Prize was actually given out to people who ahd promoted peace, not people who just happen to not be a clone of George W. Bush.

This is great news, congratulations!

Also, a good reminder that I'm long overdue in making a donation to that organization.
