‘This story is far from done’

Editor’s Notes: A special live segment today on the Today Show with Edward Snowden’s dad sharing his perspective on his son’s integrity and on the shameful actions of this Administration and Congress.. Worth watching.. Posted with other resource links under Critical News and Events at
Following are excerpts from [rush] transcript:
[Lon Snowden] i’m a concerned father and i love my son but i have confidence in my son. at this point i’m absolutely certain that he is speaking the truth. i have someone that worked in the government for years and years and years. i am extremely disappointed and angry. i’m an angry american citizen. i watched closely the balance of the 36 members on the two intelligence committees in congress, particularly the house and the american people have not, at this point, they don’t know the full truth but the truth is coming
> [Matt Lauer]
let me end with mr. snowden. his life will never be the same. whether it’s living in a foreign country or coming back to the united states to face charges. perhaps spending the rest of his life in a federal prison. as a father, was it worth it?
at last nothing is sacred but the integrity of one’s own mind. emmerson said that. when i take my final breath have to be comfortable with who i was. i think my son did what he knew was right. he shared the truth with the american people. what we do with it is up to us as a people. . . we have much work to do. this story is far from done.

About flybynews

Flyby News (FN) came out of the campaign to stop or expose the high risk NASA Cassini (plutonium) Earth flyby. FN's first campaign at the turn of the millennium was to prevent the expansion of the arms race and US domination of the planet with space-based weapons. Yet the theft of democracy in the US 2000 election, the Supreme Court appointment of George W. Bush as US President, and the events of September 11, 2001, led to the termination of the 1972 Ballistic Missile Treaty, along with many other actions of crimes against humanity and civil freedom. The exploitation and cover-up of September 11, 2001 led to illegal, deceptive wars, which has accelerated climate change, and the downfall of financial and social justice. Flyby News is educational and nonviolent in focus, and has supported critical campaigns for a healthy environment, human rights, justice, peace, and nonviolence, since the launching of NASA's Cassini space probe in 1997.
