I don’t like pardons. They presume there is something to pardon. Yet due to the heroic, self-sacrificing nature of Mr Snowden’s actions, I signed. Will you? Of course the national-security elites will ignore this. After all, this is Amerika. It is quaint that the petition only contains the initials of the signers, as if their identities (my identityÂ isÂ Peter Kirstein), will be immune from the American Fourth Amendment violators and cyber imperialists who are committing these repressive and vileÂ acts.
