Submission + - Snowden made the right call to flee US: Ellsberg

BrokenHalo writes: An interesting article in The Age gives us an interesting perspective from Daniel Ellsberg, who some of us old codgers might remember was responsible for leaking Pentagon papers that brought down Nixon just a few years ago.

In brief, "It was a less punitive kind of America when I disclosed the Pentagon Papers in the 1970s" and "What [Snowden] has given us is our best chance — if we respond to his information and his challenge — to rescue ourselves from out-of-control surveillance that shifts all practical power to the executive branch and its intelligence agencies: a United Stasi of America."
