Writing - Codes and ciphers

My day has been quite puzzling. I've been surrounded by codes and methods of breaking them. In fact I watched a TV programme on the place I visited today. 
These experiences raised the actions of 2 men Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. The latter described as a traitor because he has upset the NSA and GCHQ in the UK.
The US and UK authorities engaged in a witchunt against Gordon Welchman who was certainly on a par if not better than Alan Turing at code breaking. That sounds derogatory but the two brilliant men worked in parallel and their work complemented each other.

The point is that the government of the day felt the need to persecute people whose sole purpose was to benefit the country. Interesting! 
More later.

God bless
