MSNBC Open Letter to Snowden: Turn Yourself In, Obama Will Treat You Well in Prison Daniel Halper July 13, 2013 12:57 PM
In what appeared to be an open letter to Edward Snowden, MSNBC this morning pleaded for the leaker to turn himself in to American authorities, despite the alleged tens of thousands of "human rights violations" in prisons each year:
"And we're talking about how you praise countries like Russia and Venezuela for standing against human rights violations and refusing to compromise their principles. Seriously, Ed, where do you even come up with that? What are you thinking?," said the MSNBC host.
"Now, I understand you don't want to come back. I mean, to do so would mean giving up your freedom, definitely before a trial and likely for several months or years thereafter. I get it! It's prisons in the U.S. that commit actual human rights violations. We just talked about it. More than 80,000 prisoners are held in solitary confinement, some for years, some indefinitely, despite the fact that solitary's cruel and psychologically damaging. I know those aren't the human rights violations, though, Ed, that you were complaining about. But you might have nothing to worry about anyway, because unlike most of the people in solitary confinement, including Private Bradley Manning, on trial for giving data to Wikileaks, you have cultivated for yourself a level of celebrity. And that celebrity itself may just act as the protection, another kind of cloak, if you ever find yourself in a U.A. prison, you have made quite a spectacle of yourself, and the Obama administration will be very careful about how it treats you. Unlike how states treat all those other prisoners."
The host concludes, "So come on home, Ed, then, you know, we can talk about something else. Sincerely, Melissa."
They’ll give him a 300 lb roommate named bubba.
Is this another reference to our GAY president?
If the administration can abandon a Pakistanian doctor to untold horror in a Pakistanian prison, why would Obama work to ensure that Snowden would get treated well in the American prison system, where prison rape is rampant?
Aww...PMSNBC is looking for a third viewer.
I am sure that he would be amused , ..if he was still alive !
After we win this election, its our turn. Payback time.
Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we dont forget.
The ones who helped us will be rewarded,
the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve.
There is going to be hell to pay." --Valerie Jarrett
I didn't see the word "JUSTICE" anywhere in that quote
Snowden needs to say he will accept those terms if Obama is his cellmate.
MSNBC is upset with Snowden because he's treading on their turf.
Leave the praise of tyrants to the professionals, kid!
” Open Letter to Snowden: Turn Yourself In, Obama Will Treat You Well in Prison “
What they should put in a open letter to Obama: Tell the truth, the AMERICAN people will treat you well in prison.
“TURN YOURSELF IN, OBAMA WILL TREAT YOU WELL IN PRISON”
In fact, he has whole prison fantasies about just how well, after seeing the pics of you online!
If Bush was President, Run, Forrest, run...
More Socialists Now Become Communists....
Coming from a “network” where every employee should be strung up by a rope for treason.
thing is.. snowden knows these people. he’s got the goods on them.
and he knows they’re lying, murderous, rat-bastards
Did Obama give his sacred word of honor on that?
Yeah, that's what they told John Huss. I guarantee if Obama ever gets ahold of Snowden he will put him in the deepest hole he can find and he will never see the light of day again.
Card dated July, 1936: “Comrade Stalin sends you his warmest wishes and wants you to come by the office for coffee and a chat.”
Vladimir Bogdanovich Rezun was a fairly high level Soviet defector, who published books under the name “Viktor Suvorov”, about his various experiences in the Soviet Army, the Army Military Intelligence Branch, the GRU, and Spetsnaz, the Soviet Army Special Forces.
Very entertaining reading. Of many impressive anecdotes, he related as to how, when he was invited into the GRU, they showed him a short movie. It was of one of their agents who had been identified as a spy, tied to a gurney and being pushed, head first, into a hot blast furnace.
The message was simple. Don’t betray us, or this will happen to you. And they meant it.
I mention this, because it is pretty much the attitude of the top spy agencies of world powers. If you betray us, we will kill you.
And it applies just as much to the NSA.
And it certainly applies to Snowden.
Oh no, not in America.
We are decent people.
Snowden probably actually would come back if he could guarantee a number of conditions for himself. But those conditions could only be met living in a room off the Oval Office with a 24/7 webcam on him.
Then the trial, with discovery..... No, zero doesn’t want him back. He’s already usurped poshitus’ popularity 100,000,000K times over, and that’s what zero INTENSELY hates.
Afraid it’s lose/lose for the admin.
Did he swear on a Koran?
Pray for America to Wake Up
How about we put Hussein in prison too, and find out how well he would treat Snowden.
