by Edward Snowden in the foreword to The Assassination Complex: Inside the Government’s Secret Drone Warfare (see the previous blog article)

an excerpt:

The individuals who make these disclosures feel so strongly about what they have seen that they’re willing to risk their lives and their freedom. They know that we, the people, are ultimately the strongest and most reliable check on the power of government.

And there are more of us than there are of them.
