ACLU: President Obama: Grant Edward Snowden Immunity Now

Hi, When Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the NSA, he single-handedly reignited a global debate about government surveillance and our most fundamental rights as individuals. And a federal judge just vindicated Snowden’s actions by declaring unconstitutional the NSA’s spying program, labeling it “Orwellian”— adding that James Madison would be “aghast.” Right now Snowden still lives under threat—exiled in Russia far from his home and his family, and the victim of ongoing public attacks by the NSA and their surveillance allies. But, in a recent CBS News interview, a top NSA official opened the door to offering Snowden immunity. We're on the precipice of a major shift in public support for Snowden, so we need to act now. Let's stand together and tell President Obama to grant whistleblower Edward Snowden immunity so he can come home: https://www.aclu.org/secure/grant_snowden_immunity?ms=web_acluaction_131217_taf Thanks.
