    So you’ve swallowed that hype hook, line, and sinker, eh?

    Snowden didn’t reveal anything that our enemies didn’t know. But he told it to The People of the United States, who didn’t know.

    So if telling the Citizenry of shenanigans done by the government is traitorous, then that makes us the enemies of the government. Which means we have bigger problems than we knew.

    So what I’m saying, to be clear, is this: Snowden is a HERO, not a traitor.

    Trading places….
    Coulda swore this was the problem the USSR used to have before they went under. Their people got tired of them and their incompetence.

    A Republican commentator made a comment I’ve come to appreciate.
    “Love the Leak, Hate the Leaker.”
    If Mr. Snowden was sitting in a jail cell surrounded by FBI agents on US soil, I would consider him a patriot for standing up against something he thought was a threat to our Constitution.
    He left the nation, then he said he got the NSA job with the PLAN to do what he’s done, and when PUTIN said Snowden could only get amnesty if he agreed to stop leaking info (probably to anyone else but Putin), Snowden withdrew his request for Russian protection. Now he is applying for asylum in other countries with whom the USA has difficult relations. It is hard not to consider him a risk to the security of the USA, its diplomats, its military, and especially those foreign nationals who for whatever reason have become ‘assets’ for the USA.
    I would like to know how much access the Chinese and Russians have had to data on the computer Mr. Snowden allegedly still carries. I find that rather terrifying.
    How much do you think it costs to change EVERY password and protocol Snowden might have accessed?

    What an age we live in. When a citizen reveals the truth about what our glorious master is doing and is called a traitor.

    If all he had done was reveal the NSA’s egregious monitoring of U.S. citizens, he would be a hero. It’s the other stuff that he had access to (by his own proclamation) including Humint assets and programs world wide. If so, the man is no hero.

    “The intelligence community is already seeing indications that several terrorist groups are in fact attempting to change their communication behaviors based on what they’re reading about our surveillance programs in the media,” a senior intelligence official told ABC News.

    Has it even been established that he’s there at government expense to make your comment pertinent?

    the problem is this is not news. I have a few stocks (not many but forgot password) they asked me questions like which one of these address did you live at ( and one of them was from 30 years ago. And some other info that I did not tell them they just had in their records. Sorry this is not news and if it stops another person from being killed by terrorist then keep it going .(oh not a Obama fan)

    Some people are perfectly okay with just about any heavy-handed measure you can imagine- because they believe that nothing bad could ever happen to them (after all, they’re “good”), and only the people they hate will ever be harmed. Their pathological need to see “the other” suffer overrides all common sense.
    Some people would let you march them over the edge of an active volcano if they got to kick the guy ahead of them in first.

    Does it not concern you that, while the feds and their designated subcontractors were sifting through your online family photos, Mr. Snowden was directly under their noses, downloading large numbers of “secure” files? Do you get the feeling that this program is really getting anything done, except for wasting money? Looks to me that this program’s failure to find him is all the proof we need.

    One of the spoof websites has someone named #KimJongNumberUn offering asylum to Snowden’s laptops.

    I would agree with you except Snowden went to China then Russia.If he stayed here that might be a little different.He took the NSA job under false pretentenses then hauled butt to China as soon as he got what he wanted to sell them and Russia.
    I guess you missed that part because of the weed.

    I think Respectful Troll said it best. I think Snowden’s initial disclosure was indeed heroic. Unfortunately, all his actions since gives ammunition to all the Kool Aid drinkers who would rather die than lay any blame on their precious political parties (I am referring to both sides of the aisle).

    I don’t doubt the man is scared. He should be. And the decisions he’s made may have been made out of fear. But his more recent actions will now undo any good he did.
