Dear Mr. Jeff,

Mr. Manning, who apparently stole and leaked top secret information, will receive a fair trial with legal representation. Mr. Snowden will receive the same, under the Constitution, if he's returned to the USA.

I do not know whether you are following Manning's trial so closely as I do or not. If you had then you would have noticed that Manning exposed the fact that the US army had deliberately murdered US civilians by firing from helicopter in one particular instance. Now if exposing that is considered as disclosing government information then why do you call cartoon's of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) as freedom of expression ? My viewpoint here is that you can not on the one hand talk about freedom of expression and on the other hand give the excuse of safely keeping away US regimes hidden secrets away. That is hypocracy.

Mr. Snowden will receive the same, under the Constitution, if he's returned to the USA.

Already people like Dick Cheney , Peter King and Dianne Feinstein has called for Snowden's assassination. So I do not know which world are you living at this moment ?

Contrary to popular belief in the Islamic world, the US government is not the only source of money in the West. A lot of organizations charitably help impoverished people around the world, including those impoverished by their Islamic culture. The Maryknoll Sisters are fat cat NGO people?

OK can you please give me the statistics about if any people in the developing world let alone Islamic world has ever been benefitted because of Western private charities ? Dr. Sreeram Chaulia has mentioned in his book that most of the money which are given as charities are spend as part of high salaries in the Western managers in these charities.

Another point is that most of these so-called Western charities are nothing but front offices of CIA. and Mossad Most of these charities actually work where CIA and Mossad cannot reach for diplomatic and other reasons.

I believe these so called Western charities hardly spend even 1 per cent of their charities on the real needy people. That is the reason that we have had in the last 1 months most of the US private charities thrown out of Russia , Egypt and many other prominent countries. There is a reason that the so-called humanitarian charities have to arrange for huge securities. When people are starving and you continue to eat full six time meals as these charity people do then you are bound to be attacked.

Submitting....
