Edward Snowden Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Just five years after President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace prize (to much global amazement), Norwegian politicians have nominated none other than Edward Snowden for this year's award for contributing to transparency and global stability by exposing a U.S. surveillance program. As Reuters reports, Snowden’s "actions have in effect led to the reintroduction of trust and transparency as a leading principle in global security policies."  


 

Via Reuters,

The public debate and changes in policy that have followed in the wake of Snowden’s whistleblowing have contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order,” Norwegian parliamentarians Snorre Valen and Baard Vegar Solhjell said in the nomination letter obtained by Bloomberg.

 

...

 

There’s no doubt that the actions of Edward Snowden may have damaged the security interests of several nations in the short term,” said Valen and Solhjell, who was environment minister in the former Labor-led government. Snowden’s “actions have in effect led to the reintroduction of trust and transparency as a leading principle in global security policies.”

 

...

 

Valen and Solhjell, who represent the Socialist Left Party in the Norwegian parliament, also said that they “don’t necessarily condone or support all of his disclosures.”

 

The Nobel Committee accepts nominations from members of national assemblies, governments, international courts, professors and previous laureates. It received a record 259 nominations for last year’s prize. While the nominees are kept secret for 50 years, names are sometimes disclosed by the nominators. The prize winner will be announced in October.

 

Is this the Nobel's last best effort to regain some credibility?

Obvious global elite is elevate smear campaign on Mr. Snowden. Is not enough for USSA discredit Snowden through puppet mouthpiece main stream media and foul mouth congressman and political appointee on television, but is now international attempt at discredit Snowden with farcical award. Imagining Obama, Gore, Kissinger, and Snowden in room together to polish award. One thing is not belonging.

Couple of thoughts after reading the psyop/hero debate down below.  

What do people think about the revelations that he confirmed (Russell Tice said many of the same things years ago)?

If this is a psyop, what is the end goal of such psyop?  I have heard that it was to make us think the NSA was like the Eye of Sauron?

If he is a traitor or this is a psyop, does this mean you discredit the allegations that he confirmed?

I think this is the most valid answer as to why so many look at the cult of personality, instead of the information.  If you can discredit him as a psyop, then that at least maintains your belief in our SYSTEM, and does not force you to action, because if you took his revelations as to the corruption, wanton illegality, and utter disregard for We the People then you would be forced to come to the conclusion that the single greatest threat to our liberty is the servant government that we set up to protect it.

I have seen it. In myself. Searching for that one piece of irrefutable proof that what I thought was correct.  Of course, when I found that proof, I would somehow discredit it and keep looking. Because when I found that one piece of evidence, I would be forced into choosing to act, or to realize that I did not want to act in the first place.

Nothing he revealed was groundbreaking, Russ Tice shed light on this stuff years ago.

We have to realize we have had enough evidence for decades to realize what is true to most of the brown people we bomb at will. That we are not the good guy.

But yet we argue still about 911, F&F, Benghazi, Snowden, Wikileaks, red/blue, etc.

Just ask yourselves why.

It's tempting to read too much into this thing.  Here's a paragraph that resonates: 

In a nutshell the Snowden case was used by the British military intelligence in partnership with a CIA faction opposed to the heavy-handed Pentagon-NSA eavesdropping programs that threaten to knock over sensitive operations, for instance, joint operations with Qatar and Saudi intelligence to direct Al Qaeda units in Libya, Syria and Afghanistan. Since assassination targets could include American, British and other allied European officers who know too much, the Agency prefers to operate without its communications with field agents and MK-ULTRA types being monitored by lads like Snowden or any of the many generals who have a grudge against the CIA. As for disclosures on snooping, the public be damned.

I have no relevant experience, but suspect that little in Snowden's work environment could happen by chance.  I think Snowden is a sharp, talented, well spoken systems guy who got scared -- a rude awakening -- and decided based on the part of the bigger picture that was given to him that he could score a meaningful victory for the idealists of the world as he saw it.  But intelligence is an old, mature and dangerous game, with blurred lines and mechanisms for handling idealists. Snowden stated previously that he took his time making plans. In an environment that is a magnet for control freaks and manipulators, with numerous tools for tracking physical and network movement, he and others like him will naturally be watched and manipulated. We may speculate that he was permitted to carry out his action in order to achieve other goals.  That's the beauty of it: even when it's simple, it isn't simple, and even when you think you operate independently, you never know.  A pawn doesn't have to know that it's a pawn.  He's a guy with a conscience who got used and continues to be used.  One branch of the tree struck a blow against another.

You don't need to read too much into anything. The simplest answer is usually the closest to the truth.

In this case - and I've said it from the day of his first (only?) interview with Greenwald - the objective is to engender public outrage (over something we've already known for decades!) so that they can move the NSA away from the US military and into "independent" (ie. their, privatised) ownership subject to "strict oversight".

It's the only "fair" and "transparent" thing to do. LOL.

Seems pretty obvious to me: Nobel made his fortune off war profiteering. Now the Nobel committee is continuing in the vein by supplying both sides of the conflict: the spies (Obama) and the counter-spies (Snowden).

Why must Snowden have to be either a traitor or a hero whistleblower?  Truth is complicated, and he is really equal parts of both.  

 

He's a hero for releasing the documents that he has showing just how out-of-control the current administration is.  (Believe me, it's gotten way way worse in the last six years...)  

 

He's a traitor for the documents that he has yet to release, which names names of innocents who thought that they were helping a world power do the right thing.  These poor people, who have families and children, will die.  

 

Personally, I would deliver a Nobel to him on the tip of a Hellfire missile.

I especially liked the part were he accuses Snowden of being a traitor for the possible content of information he might release.

At this level of la-la land, imaginary reality, one might as well accuse George Washington of being a British Monarchist and a traitor since he might raise up from the dead and loudly proclaim his alliegance to the Queen.

Sandman
I respect your right to an opinion, however I am not surprised. ;-)

Operation Sandman has been described as an interrogation plan devised with military psychiatrists for systematically interrupting a detainee's sleep.
Sleep deprivation is used by torturers because it makes a person more suggestible, reduces psychological resistance and it reduces the body’s capacity to resist pain. Sleep deprivation is a very effective torture technique. Operation Sandman is also known as the ' Frequent Flyer Program'. It was frequently utilized at Guantanamo Bay.

Agree. I keep hearing this BS about all the damage he's done to the country. Like what? He pointed out the degree the goverment was collecting and storing info on it's own citizens. Kind of like the stazi used to do. That we were in direct violation of treaty agreements with our five closest allies by spying on them. (We only have agreements with 5 countries not to spy on each other and we can't even live up to those)That we were engaging in industrial spying to steal business info. (Wonder which "special" companies get these goodies, think maybe they give campaign contributions?)Then when you point out he hasn't really damaged US interests yet they say it's only a matter of time before he releases sensitive info. If he does I'll agree with his critics, until then he's done the country a service by exposing this unconstitutionsl behavior. That's right, unconstitutional. Just because a toady judge says it's OK doesn't make it so.

As a US government employee, Snowden swore to uphold the Constitution and is a traitor only to the foremost violator of it: the selfsame US government.

In a tyranical country, it is the duty of the Citizens to serve the State.

In a democratic country, it is the duty of the State to serve the Citizens.

 

Thus, in a democratic country, anybody who exposes those elements within the State which are using the powers of the State to do things which might be contrary to the best interests of the Citizens, is only doing his Duty to those he serves: the Citizens.

Only in a tyranny would Snowden's actions be considered treason.

Luke SkyWalker! Do NoT gO to ThE daRk SiDe of THE foRce!

Me tinks, we should do some retroactive due diligence, send some evil forces to place code named "SF706 Zoppot", plant some microfonez in ze "wazzoons" and see what EdWARdo really thinks. If he really cares or not! Me thinks and even knows, that a friend of his whom he likeZ very MuCH will betray him for ze money at some point in ze future but that'z no problem since EdWardo is a FoReST GuMp from ze dEEp DuMp. Me also thinks that Scots and ze Catalonians are zebit retarted that zhey want to be "idependent", coz thingz change fast, ezpessially ze WhEAtheR (NO zNoW, NO W-a-t-e-r, NO liFe, NO ze pOnZ MoNey), demograFics and global economic structure  on zis spazeship called Earth. And maybe for 10... 20... max 25 zey will be "idependent" but ultematly zhey will fail. IF ze Gesserit weren't zo greedy and zelfish, we could have had a really nize global zyztem but ze Gesserits muzt alwayz do zometing wOng due to their built in ignorance, arroganze and propably ze puzzy catz and as always in the end being met by bubba in ze bazzement. Ze otherz are no BeTTer, inQluding Y U  EdWARdo Y U SChmuck! It'z az if everything waz being imprinted in everybodyz DNA! Y U Love me? I luVE U Too ! Y U Zay Tomato I zaY PoTaTo Zo let'z make ze war in ze middle of nowhere. And Vladimir Harkonnen iz doing ze same miztake az in ze 90', by conzolidating ze power! Short term gain OVA long term FAILURE! Me also tinks, we should nuke ze Mexico Of E-u-R-o-P-e, coz it's haz a lot of znow lately and will be having in ze FuTUre! Me lOVa long Term CONTAMINATION! In ze mean time, ze true SpIcE MuST FLOW. We are repeating ze zame thing allOVA again with small corrections and yes, whe should have already been at war zinz 2011! Ze biGGezt loser? Ze PenTagraM due to Znow, wheather conditionz, ze zemoralization of ze foRZeZ and ze other cozmic zings I dare not eVa to menzion hUmaN moNKIEz,  inQluding Y U  EdWARdo ... Y U SChmuck! Me no like that to HAppEN! And me do no mean Sun's polarity flipping or ze Earth's polar axis shift! Me nOw now why Vatican AZZAzzINz should always ztick to ZeliBazy but at ze zame time, zu not touch dat BOY or PeriSH in FIre aZZhole! WE ARE ALL DOOMED! Thankfully! (No! We aRe NOT! I am just DraMA LaMA.) Beqoze when you zink you have uncovered ze unknown unknown, zere are other UnkNown UnKNOWns you may talk about but for zat we need ze lot of zrugs, ze good wheather and ze right moment in ze space-time continuum! And lastly. Remember all. Ze God doez not ExISt, that'z why ze "God save ze Gesseritz"!

 

If yUO LiKE LULz, thumb up! Y U No like LuLz?

 

Ed-WAR-do! Take zat Prettzel PriZZe! Donate ze POMO-MoNey. Help ze Reverend Mother Mohiam if she'z in need (and she trully iz in great need right now, me think you even like her... a bit) and DIE in your ShmUckSviLLe!!!

I hear you resurger but I gotta disagree. I hope he wins this prize. I hope he uses this as a pulpit to get others out there to believe that if they do the same they will not be a villian and persecuted. I think the police state has very few threats to it, and this is one. I hope he gets it.

Yep. I feel the same about Nobel Piece-o-shit prize as everyone else, but I hope he wins it. It would be the best protection he could have, although I wouldn't put it beyond the spooks to ice him in Sweden. Langley and the Pentagon have a habit of proving that they are way beyond the law when it comes to kidnapping,  torture and murder. 

There have been a few notable winners who deserved it in literature, science and peace categories who went on to continue their struggles against wars and injustice, (I saw Harold Pinter at  my first anti-war demo) so barring shits like Obama and Kissinger, he shouldn't be ashamed to be a laureate. They're not all evil creatures rewarded for their services to tptb.

It reminds me of that scene near the end of Braveheart when he gets called to the meeting and his buddies told him that it was a trap, He said that he had to take the chance, because you know what happens if he does not? Nothing.

Then he got pulled apart by the horses and his balls ripped off and eviscerated. So maybe for his own purposes he should stay away from accepting it. But if he does and gets his balls ripped off then we have to storm the field because that is what his buddies did. I mean i'm gonna hang back, but you guys should definitely avenge him.

As far as I am concerned the Nobel given for social engineering roles is to create shills for the NWO slave empire. Either Snowden is to pump a little credibility into the Nobels now meaningless drivel or Snowden was actully being used to condition sheeple to get used to having their lives watched, or both. The level of deception and intrigue going on out there boggles my mind. All I know is that one way or the other I have to find ways to get the NSA et al. snouts out of my business.
