Apologies for the sloppy post as i was on my way out the door. Hope it makes some sense..It seems overall, J-Mac, that we share the same uncertainty in a couple of areas.. I don't have the confidence in the American government and bureaucracy that I once had but still have, despite the lest election, confidence in the American people.
Maybe Snowden is a patriot, maybe he is a traitor. I don't know. I share the same uncertainty about Snowden as I have with the US Government and the faceless bureaucracy which has become answerable, apparently, to no one.
It seems there is a need for more whistle-blowers in every bureaucracy though the government of the day always reacts in a similar fashion, and sometimes rightly so. Is this guy creating the promised 'transparency' or giving away secrets of the State, or just exposing some self serving politicians? I think I'll reserve judgement.
