9. For telling the truth?

Espionage for what enemy?

The experts pretty much agree that the terrorists know that the internet is under surveillance.

N. Korea? Iran? Does N. Korea have any connection to our internet? Does Iran? For long?

Iranian internet users could have access to international websites such as Google and YouTube blocked, under little-known government plans to manage the internet.

The Iranian government says its "national internet", currently used for domestic websites including banks and government departments, would improve browsing speeds and data security.

But critics warn it could allow the government to cut off access to foreign sites, restricting access to information and preventing users from sharing information online.

I think I heard about Iran's plans some time before Snowden made his statements. I may have heard about it on the radio. I could be wrong, but I think so. It was, I think, have been some months ago. I could be wrong, but I think so. I listen to Pacifica sometimes.
