Letter: Role reversal?


Role reversal?

Dear Editor:

In regards to Pat Hunter’s letter, we Americans, especially in the West, love an outlaw (“And the real spies are?”, June 25, The Aspen Times).

“In a sense, the United States has gone from a ‘model of human rights’ to ‘an eavesdropper on personal privacy,’ the ‘manipulator’ of the centralised power over the international Internet, and the mad ‘invader’ of other countries’ networks,” the People’s Daily said.

Wow. China lectures America on freedom?

The White House said allowing Snowden to leave was “a deliberate choice by the government to release a fugitive despite a valid arrest warrant, and that decision unquestionably has a negative impact on the U.S.-China relationship.”
