Breaking News! Glenn Greenwald Arrives in US, Not Arrested, Not Tortured, Not Murdered
After all the thousands of words Glenn Greenwald has written about the danger he faced if he returned to the United States, and how the government was out to get him and would undoubtedly throw him into solitary confinement instantly upon arrival, and possibly even murder him because that’s how evil Obama is, this morning Greenwald, Laura Poitras and David Miranda arrived in New York to receive an award… and nothing happened.
What? Glenn Greenwald wasn’t arrested? You mean all that hype was just paranoid melodrama?
WAR ON WHISTLEBLOWERS!
Some funny responses on Twitter:
@Green_Footballs He has become so powerful that now the government FEARS HIM.
@Green_Footballs I’m sure he’s in the middle of a Will Smith in ‘Enemy of the State’ style escape from his shadowy govt pursuers right now.
@Green_Footballs They’re just trying to, like, lull him into a false sense of security, maaaan.
