    Yes because the oversight committee will really do something about this..
    "We tried to stay for the better part of seven years inside the government trying to get the government to recognize the unconstitutional, illegal activity that they were doing and openly admit that and devise certain ways that would be constitutionally and legally acceptable to achieve the ends they were really after. And that just failed totally because no one in Congress or — we couldn't get anybody in the courts, and certainly the Department of Justice and inspector general's office didn't pay any attention to it. And all of the efforts we made just produced no change whatsoever. All it did was continue to get worse and expand." 3 NSA veterans speak out on whistle-blower: We told you so

    Exposing intelligence collection to foreign countries endangers American lives. It's not rocket science.

    Exposing that we hacked, tapped allies phones and other services, that we hack our own citizens phones and collect data on them, endangers Americans? How so? Is Germany going to invade us? Is Brazil going to attack us?

    You spy on your friends because they won't always be your friends.

    So it endangers people who sit at a computer at NSA's computers? You have yet to offered a shred of evidence, all personal speculations. Reminds me of when Wikileaks dumped their documents, we heard the exact some cries but what do you know the Pentagon even admitted it didnt harm a single Americans life.

    Clemency? He wants clemency?

    This country will send you to prison for 25 years to life if you sell me an ounce of mushrooms. This country is the last civilized country with a death penalty. This country has robot planes that will kill you without a trial. This country PROUDLY spies on all of us. And you are asking them for clemency?

    Must be the mushrooms.

    Not all of that intel was collected by a desk jockey.
