    I do not know the full details of Manning's case as much as I believe to know Snowden's. However, what I will say is I have respect for those who are willing to own up to their actions. Whether that means you make a mistake and apologize or you break a law doing what you think is right, whatever the case may be, own up to what you've done.

    By that nonsensical logic, you can almost guarantee anything.
    No, you can only do it for things in which you have enough evidence to support.

    I can almost guarantee that you are a goat typing on a keyboard.
    Goats cannot type on a keyboard, thus your example does not hold water and illustrates a lack of ability to understand basic concepts.

    Have a wonderful day.

    The fact remains that you do not know what he wants - and you admitted you do not.

    Even though earlier, you said you did know what he wants.



    Have a nice day.

    Seems that Snowden released more info on the goverment's spying and this time it's global.

    Snowden unveils NSA spy satellite SAURON program targeting US citizens | The Internet Chronicle

    SAURON, or the Semi-Autonomous Ultra-high-Resolution Orbital Network, is comprised of a series of hundreds of low-orbiting cameras that can make out objects on the ground as small as 1 centimeter in size.

    There are so many satellites in this network that they are able to effectively monitor the entire planet’s populated surface without interruption. According to slides Snowden shared, taken from the NSA presentation on SAURON, each spy satellite feeds directly into a data bank so large that it is able to retain the captured imagery indefinitely

    So what you are saying is you don't want anyone to ever do anything like that again, right?

    I'm pulling for him and hope he survives and remains free. All Americans owe him a debt of gratitude.

    I don't, because I hope it's never needed again.

    But that's not really what I was saying. What I was saying one should own up to their actions.

    Perhaps you could enlighten me how volunteering to be locked in solitary confinement, without bed sheets and without a trial, for years, makes someone a man? I guess you think Manning is the manliest guy ever huh? I'm not sure where you got this ridiculous notion that only real men turn themselves in to the organization they're fighting, without a fight. A real man continues to resist.

    What possible good could come from him letting the government crush him in a secret trial years from now?

    And what terrible reading comprehension you seem to possess. Clearly you are a traitor to this country, obviously planning a rebellion against the government.

    Or, maybe, we can stop irrational extremism in discourse and just discuss this logically. Your hyperbole does nothing but discredit you.
    How is it hyperbole if I'm quoting exactly what you said? You believe anyone who doesn't subject himself to years of solitary confinement without trial, and probably life imprisonment, is a coward. How is this any different than Manning? Both leaked something the American people needed to know, and that pissed a lot of politicians off. They'll nail him to the wall just like they're doing to Manning.

    Funny how we haven't heard one single interview from Manning. You act like Snowden would have access to the press. I don't think you're that naive, I think you just want to see him suffer. It has nothing to do with "being a man".
