2. I have never seen so much anti-whistle blower talking points on DU as I have seen with Snowden

 

I wonder why?

Snowden is a smart capable man who could not be bought off. And I think heroes like him are very dangerous to capitalist elites.

5. "I wonder why?" (2)

I think your answer is in the body of your post. There are those on DU who serve the interests of the capitalist elites. What that means in terms of progressive values is for you to ponder.

6. It is ironic that this report was broacast on RT because our government started

seeking the capacity to monitor vast amounts of incoming and outgoing communication during the Cold War to defend/fight against the USSR and its massive regime of surveillance and repression. At least that was the excuse at the time.
