Glenn Greewald is an extremely bright, fearless, perceptive, honest and caring person. He uses his talents as an attorney, investigative reporter and journalist to support U.S. democracy and to confront those who are too anxious to finalize the efforts of many in Washington and the Pentagon to turn America into an oligarchy run by plutocrats. His latest book, "No Place To Hide" details the heroism and the tenacity of Edward Snowden's determination to inform the American people of the arrival of 1984. Without Greewald and Poitras, Snowden's efforts probably would not have been successful.. Neither the U.S. nor Israel treats its whistleblowers as patriots. When is Mordechai Vanunu wish to leave Israel going to be granted?
