Re: Elon Musk posts Twitter poll on pardoning Assange and Snowden
A pardon assumes that Assange and Snowden are guilty of some sort of wrongdoing. The pardon would relieve them of the consequences of such action.
Only in a mad world is the revelation of war crimes and other malfeasance considered a wrongdoing worthy of punishment.
In a sane world they would be celebrated. A pardon wouldn't come into it.
