This video says about itself:
10 December 2014
Speaking via videolink at a Paris conference organised by pressure group Amnesty International, Snowden, who exposed secret NSA documents, said he was “deeply saddened and to a great extent angered’ by what he read.
Everywhere, there is disgust about the horrible torture by the CIA, as revealed partly in the redacted report published recently by the United States Senate.
And a Dutch political ally of Marine Le Pen is not (or: was not? as we shall see) either.
His name is Michael Heemels. He is chairman of the caucus in the Limburg provincial assembly of the PVV, Geert Wilders‘ xenophobic political party. The party that used to say that they did not want cooperation with anti-Semitic parties like the National Front, and Vlaams Belang in Belgium. But now, the party which has flip-flopped on this since.
Michael Heemels is also Geert Wilders’ press spokesman.
Yesterday on Twitter, Heemels said (translated):
This is why I don’t give a shit how we gathered information from terrorists.
After many protests, Heemels flip-flopped and deleted that tweet.
