Ex-spy 'Falcon': U.S. likes Snowden in Russia - CNN.com

How better to discredit Snowden's warnings of the threat posed to civil liberties by our ever-growing surveillance state than to ceaselessly point out that he has found sanctuary in the arms of the FSB, the successor to the KGB?
Interesting thought. There's also that we let him rot in the airport for a long time, and left him with no other choice besides coming back here or staying there. He basically defected -- to a country whose record on spying on it's own citizens is....well let's say they have a long history of it.
