The US and free speech

When it comes to protecting secrets that the US government wants to keep from its own citizens, it acts very much like any other dictatorship around the world.  Look how they go about persecuting--not prosecuting--any government employee who divulges secrets not for any financial benefit for for a moral cause.  One can draw on the arguments in the Nuremberg trials and the calling for objections to government order to justify the behavior of Snowden.
