Letter: Does the First Amendment still apply in Obama’s America?

Roger Cohen asks a significant question about journalist Glenn Greenwald in his column in The New York Times.

Cohen writes, “American society will also benefit from Greenwald’s ongoing revelations about out-of-control surveillance. He has testified before the Brazilian Senate, and should be allowed to testify before the U.S. Senate. Greenwald says, “I am definitely going back, I refuse to be exiled for a lie.”

“He deserves assurance that he can return to the United States without facing arrest,” Cohen writes.

So, what is it? Does the First Amendment still apply in Obama’s “Amerika”?

Can American journalist Greenwald return to his country without fear of President Obama’s “justice” department?
