Snowden documents should all be in the public domain

FOIA letter from John Young re Snowden documents

FOIA letter from John Young

The sooner that all Snowden documents are in the public domain the better.

While there are some advantages in releasing the Snowden documents via the world’s media, those advantages are now long past. I would be happy for all field operative names to be redacted (but not those of office staff); but otherwise the people – who pay the wages of these spies – should have access to everything.

It is wrong that our knowledge of these surveillance practices, legal and illegal, should be filtered by newspapers whose primary concern is to increase readership.

To quote the government, if you’ve done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear.

More power to John Young’s elbow.
