Mondoweiss carries a video of a talk that Glenn Greenwald presented at the Socialism 2013 conference in Chicago, on Edward Snowden and his persecution by the NSA. It runs about 40 minutes, and Greenwald has many fine words for Snowden, his character, and his motivation in challenging the most powerful state apparatus in the world. There is not a single word on the fact that Edward Snowden is a libertarian, that he donated to the Ron Paul campaign in 2012, or that prominent libertarians like Ron Paul and Judge Napolitano have publicly hailed Snowden as a hero. I guess that Greenwald felt that his socialist audience wouldn’t have found that inspiring. A pity.
