Glenn Greenwald has some serious questions to answer regarding his ties to billionaire Pierre Omidyar, founder of PayPal. Omidyar has NSA connections as do many of his associates. Read the story by whistle blower Kevin Ryan. Ask Greenwald the questions he keeps running from
Last June, Glenn Greenwald at The Guardian revealed that Edward Snowden was the NSA insider behind “one of the most significant leaks in US political history.” Snowden explained his motivations through Greenwald by saying, “There are more important things than money…. harming people isn’t my goal. Transparency is.” Such altruistic motivations were welcome news at the time but have come into question recently given that only a tiny fraction of the documents have been released nearly a year after Snowden started working with Greenwald. Perhaps more importantly, billionaire Pierre Omidyar is funding Greenwald’s slow release of those documents and Omidyar’s Paypal Corporation has highly suspicious links to NSA spying and other dangers to civil rights.
