In the last years there have been debates from people about many scandals that have been caused by the action from government from all over the world. It isn't a secret that for the example the government of the United States of America its hiding things that all the people of the planet needs to know, but the most grave thing it´s that some organizations inside this country, secretly has been accessing the mails of American people illegally without the approval of a martial court. This illegal actions of the NSA, CIA and the GCHQ have been revealed by a guy called Edward Snowden that was a former contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA) and also an ex-employee of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The government of the United States accuses him to reveal classified files of this two agencies, and because he was actually working on both. In the side of the CIA and the NSA, I think that they are doing this things for the national security but also that's illegal to do it without the order of an approval of a martial court, thing that they don´t have.
The damage is done and he did it out of selfishness the people he swore to protect are more endangered than ever (Couric)23. The information leaked was not even close to how much was taken and the government fears that there may be more that could be leaked to unwanted people the enemy of the United States (Ray)24. The Evidence is there, why he did or thought it was right the reasons to which he was thinking would make the united states more safe. The problems it caused the information he still has all play a factor. Is Edward Jay Snowden reliable or is he a spy?
In order to hide the incriminating evidence, Nixon compulsively lied throughout the whole predicament to the press and to the people of America-even the government. Eventually, Nixon handed over the tapes as commanded by the US Supreme Court. Suspiciously, eight and a half minute of a recording was missing, potentially making it impossible to uncover all of the evidence. This was the tragedy of the Watergate Scandal. One of the tapes, called “Smoking Gun” confirms Nixon had yielded justice.
Torture When it comes to the topic of torture, some of us will readily agree that torture is necessary when dealing with terrorists. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is on the question of receiving false information. Whereas some are convinced that torture is the only way to get information out of terrorist who are threatening to put thousands of innocent lives in danger. Others maintain that doing this will violate laws such as the Bill Of Rights which forbids cruel and unusual punishment. My own view, however, is that terrorism aims to spread and increase fear within civil society in order to achieve certain political goals.
For example, Osama Bin Laden chose to be a terrorist because he was angry at two things: the corruption he saw in Saudi Arabia’s government and the western influence on Middle Eastern life. He organized the terrorist group Al-Qaeda which had a hand in this event. On the internet or the news, there are multiple stories of people taken hostage and forced to work for terrorist groups or engage in these sickening acts. Someone who uses violence and threats to intimidate or coerce others for a political purpose is the definition of a terrorist. It can be inferred with this definition that anyone is capable of being a
This event was orchestrated by Jim Jones who through the trust he was given he led them astray. The mystery behind the Jonestown massacre can be summed up in two theories a CIA mind control experiment or good people being influenced by a bad man. While Jonestown is known as one of the greatest tragedies in American history it still puzzles those who wonder about how this could have happened. “Prior to the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001,
Currently, there is no evidence connecting Russia with President Trump. Another modern yet older witch hunt was the one against Hillary and Holder. The cause of Hillary’s cause was mostly because of her EMail scandal in which she used a private email for sending government information. Even though both Trump and Hillary have been witch hunted for different reasons they have all been towards fear of
Snowden, who was a computer systems contractor, worked for the National Security Agency and revealed to the public how the American Government was spying on its own citizens and foreigners. Snowden was committed to the truth which allowed him to reason and understand the difference between what is right and what is legal. Snowden was convinced that the truth requires an individual to do the right thing and not necessarily what is legal. However, doing the right thing could sometimes require an individual to break the law. Snowden was committed to doing the right thing so he revealed the different spying operations that were going on within the N.S.A.
Introduction The actions undertaken of Edward Snowden, the well-known former NSA fugitive who had leak tons of sensitive information from National Security Agency, NSA since 2013 had left a catastrophic impact towards the citizens across the globe as people had been aware that personal privacy conducted on today’s technology communication channels are not truly encrypted, which it leads to the actions where citizens are “losing confidence and trust upon the local and international government especially NSA”(Schneier, 2013) towards monitoring and intercepting the day-to-day communications that invades the citizen’s privacy space. As today’s world is entering a new state of global hyper-surveillance, personal privacy is a truly subjective area
Nowadays, many people in the United States spend too much time discussing the balance between security and liberty. They criticize the government and condemn the security measures. However, they don't want to admit that many terrorist attacks were prevented by wiretapping, monitoring the internet, and so on. Professor Levinson states that it is “spying”. I would call it “a desire to defend the people, to protect their lives and health from the terrorist
Not only has the government been spying on suspected terrorists, but also the American people. Snowden leaked documents that exposed phone and Internet corporations, like Verizon, handing over daily phone records of unsuspected
I don 't think of Edward Snowden as a hero or a traitor. I do think what he did was bad he informed the general public of what the federal government is doing and the people have the right to know. If my best friend 's girlfriend was cheating on him and I told him about it does that make me a traitor? that 's an over simplified comparison but the point is that we as people of the "free world" have the right to know. The federal government should not have the ability to monitor your activity without a warrant without a just cause.
