US was in on the intimidation of Miranda and The Guardian

Posted by Charles II on August 22, 2013

Mark Hosenball, Reuters:

One U.S. security official told Reuters that one of the main purposes of the British government’s detention and questioning of Miranda was to send a message to recipients of Snowden’s materials, including the Guardian, that the British government was serious about trying to shut down the leaks.

For the US to know the motives of the British government strongly suggests we approved of this action, since the motive of intimidating journalists is despicable and if we did not approve of it, we would have said so.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
