    Snowden embraces American flag in WIRED photo shoot[W:511]

    WASHINGTON Some patriot!NSA traitor Edward Snowden, who leaked secret government data that he stole from the agency, has been photographed embracing an American flag while on the lam in Russia.
    The image, which appears in the September issue of WIRED magazine, is likely to offend Americans who believe Snowden put lives at risk.

    What a putz this guy is....I hope when he is caught he spends the rest of his natural life behind bars.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Standard disinformation. He has learned much about such practices since taking residence in Russia. Almost certainly, he intends to try to divide the American people and probably deflect negative attention from his patrons in the Kremlin.

    Snowden can shove that flag right up his ass.

    Patriotism isn't about obeying the law or loyalty to the government. It's about being loyal to the country and the ideals it was founded on. Arguably, Snowden showed that more than any other scumbag in the NSA. At least he didn't feel the need to boldface lie to the American public about the government's surveillance habits.

    How dare anyone open the curtain and expose massive and illegal activities of 3 letter agencies that threaten the very core of American freedom!

    Wait, let me guess. He should have talked to his supervisor.

    Oh, you're right, clearly the thing to do is run to the Russians. Look, I know there are some that think the US is the great evil in the world and like anything that harms the US, a lot of us just aren't in that place.

    The anti-freedom right wing kooks in the US have already done that.

    Senator Church's NSA warning 40 years ago.

    In the need to develop a capacity to know what potential enemies are doing, the United States government has perfected a technological capability that enables us to monitor the messages that go through the air. Now, that is necessary and important to the United States as we look abroad at enemies or potential enemies. We must know, at the same time, that capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left such is the capability to monitor everything—telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn't matter. There would be no place to hide.
    If this government ever became a tyrant, if a dictator ever took charge in this country, the technological capacity that the intelligence community has given the government could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back because the most careful effort to combine together in resistance to the government, no matter how privately it was done, is within the reach of the government to know. Such is the capability of this technology.

    As Snowden exposed, the Church Committees warning wasn't heeded.

    There's more than one kind of scumbag, unfortunately.

    Dood, he didn't run to the Russians. Who told you that? Do you realize how it can to be that he was stranded in Russia?
