Given the fact of an open investigation, I’m not going to dwell on Mr. Snowden’s actions or motivations. I will say that our nation’s defense depends in part on the fidelity of those entrusted with our nation’s secrets. If any individual who objects to government policy can take it in their own hands to publicly disclose classified information, then we will never be able to keep our people safe, or conduct foreign policy. Moreover, the sensational way in which these disclosures have come out has often shed more heat than light, while revealing methods to our adversaries that could impact our operations in ways that we may not fully understand for years to come.

Next up, he commissioned Kidosaki Architects Studio to deliver a daring residential design. House in Yatsugatake is partially extended off the ground, with a mega structures column enabling half of the project to visually “float”. The house comes with a total living surface of 303 square meters, each of them offering spectacular views of the surrounding landscape.
