BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Fugitive U.S. intelligence analyst Edward Snowden has made the shortlist for a European human rights prize whose past winners include Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi.
布鲁塞尔(路透社) - 逃亡的美国情报分析师爱德华·斯诺登已经入围欧洲人权奖，过去的获奖者包括纳尔逊·曼德拉和昂山素季。
Snowden was nominated for the Sakharov Prize by the Green group in the European Parliament for what it said was his "enormous service" to human rights and European citizens when he disclosed secret U.S. surveillance programs.
Snowden, who is in hiding in Russia, said in a statement read out to parliament that he was grateful lawmakers were "taking up the challenge of mass surveillance".
-"The surveillance of whole populations, rather than individuals, threatens to be the greatest human rights challenge of our time," he said.
Among the other nominees for the prize, to be announced on October 10, is Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban last year for demanding education for girls.
The Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought is given by the European Parliament each year since 1988 to commemorate Soviet scientist and dissident Andrei Sakharov
One of the recipients of last year's prize, Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh, was released from jail this month in what was seen as part of a move by a new government to present a less hardline stance on dissenters.

Clapper lied to the American people about the NSA collecting data on hundreds of millions of US citizens and walked.
One week later, Snowden told the truth.
Obama condemned Snowden and not Clapper.
Snowden is a traitor and Clapper continues to draw a salary.
Obama, who claimed during his 2008 Presidential campaign, that he would ensure that no US citizens were spied on by US intelligence agencies is given a pass.....just like Clapper.

Expansion of the "National Security State" was entirely predictable in the wake of 9/11. The nature of shadowy terrorist groups secretly supported by states or by factions within states meant that national defense would fall more and more to agencies such as the NSA (as well as to the more traditional spooks) rather than to War Ministries. It's reminiscent of the post-1848 era in Europe. The state emerged tremendously more powerful then, and it is likely to be even stronger in the future.

It is the job of all government employes to protect the American people from others who for power and money would violate the voters rights, And ignore and side step the US constitution as the white house and the NSA has done. Snowden and Bradley are Americas best who fights for the people, The white house and the GOP suppress the people.They have no idea what a person like Mandela stands for

When a government stopped trusting its own people, its time for the people to stop trusting their own government.

Why Sakharov, Walesa and not Snowden prize?
After all he's is facing a lot harsher persecution in his native country than his Soviet and Polish counterparts ever were.
Thomas 3 37
When did our government cease to be a government of the people, by the people, for the people, and become instead a political elite totally disconnected from the people?
Steven 2 21
The controls in place to prevent abuse by the spies are a joke. They are ignored and and incorrectly reported to congress. This is all done intentionally and criminally. Clapper, Alexander and other heads should roll.
Tom 3 23
Snowden did all of us here in the U.S. a great service by helping to show just how out of control our secret surveillance state has become. I think he is a good candidate for the prize.
Scott 6 59
As an American, spying on other countries is not my issue. Most countries do that. I have a problem with the NSA spying internally on American citizens without a warrant. After 911 things have got very creepy in America. It is used as a 'cover-all' excuse for the Orwellian State.
Craig 7 64
Gee who would I trust to uphold the U.S. Constitution? Obama or Snowden?
Fvok Yo 5 47
Still no investigation on government administration spying and blackmailing opposition? What am I saying Lol government prosecuting itself!

I wonder what are the criteria for a revocation of the Nobel Peace Prize. Considering the many thousands of innocents killed by Obama's drone strikes, and the death toll in Afghanistan during Obama's reign so far - four times the rate when President Bush was in office - I would think it's time to take the Peace prize away from someone for whom peace is not a priority.

Come on, the guy is a traitor. Who didn't know that the government spies on us. You have to be an idiot not to know that everyone is spying on you, government, corporations, employers, parents, everyone. Now and forever any time you are on a computer someone, somewhere is tracking you. Grow up people and realize this guy made us all a little less safe. You take a government job and promise not to expose government secrets and then you go and expose them is treason. Even if he just worked for a government contractor, he knew what he was getting into. He just wanted to look like a martyer.
Craig 3 21
Wouldn't it be the ultimate irony if Snowdon also received the Nobel?

The Nobel Prize winner (Obama) went against the one who really deserves it.

All Snowden did was blow the whistle on his boss who was doing things that he was convinced were wrong. Let's say you walk in on your boss at work and he is drowning small children in a bucket of water; would you blow the whistle on that at the risk of losing your job and being persecuted, or just let it go?
Anthony 4 10
Edward Snowden should win the prize. He has been the most influential person this year that exposed how government (USA -NSA), GB, france, are spying, laying to their people. He should us that we do not have to live in a communist state to be treated like we are all criminals. Free Edward Snowden.
Peter 1 11
I tend to trust Snowden more than our government.

Prizes do not mean much after Obama got the peace prize. We still do not know what he got a peace of.

The man who gave proof of the US government was spying on its own citizens. Such as collecting all facebook data, wiretapping EVERY phone call, collecting all their text messages, emails, instant messages, skype data, fingerprints, bank data, what websites they visit, search engine data, and even using cameras too look at people's license plates to know where they at all times. Yet there are people who support such things and call him a traitor instead of the U.S. Government which is desperately trying to destroy the 4th amendment of the U.S. Constitution. There is even built in program into Windows 8 that allows the NSA to mess around with your computer whenever they want.
H Plus J 4 10
Now that is a slap in the face to Obama and Eric Holder. Europe hates their guts along with Russia, Israel, Brazil, Germany and many more nations. However Iran likes Obama so all is not lost.
James 3 17
The Nobel Prize that Obama received should be revoked and given to Snowden.
Leo 5 22
This is one of the most ironic situations I can remember in a while. The United States wants to condemn one of her own because he told the truth and exposed the NSA to the world. The world, on the other hand, sees a hero. When will become the land of the free again, and not fear our government?

It is all for the good of Americans, for the surveillance to be in place, US will be safer. But the degree is what has to be well checked and controlled .
Billy 11 15
At lease in Europe they think he is more a hero than the nuts in the USA
Reno Benteen 13 6
A short rope would be more appropriate.
