    Oh, I'm a hater, now?

    Snowden stole classified materials ang gave those mayerials to a foreign government. Thats treason.

    Do you think Russia would let him out?

    He might know some secrets from over there to tell the US.

    The fact that Snowden is asking for clemency tells me that things are not going well in Russia for him.

    There was a time when our country and its press valued the truth. There was a time when it was embarrassing to be caught in an expose or a scandal. Now our government breaks its own laws and spies on its own people, and when exposed the public will attack the person who blew the cover.

    Back in the day, this would be called investigative journalism. Now it's called treason.

    I hope Snowden is never caught. He's a patriot and a symbol of one of the only sources of truth we have left in this polity.

    He's probably never gonna come back to the US again. Better figure something out cuz i believe his "amnesty" in Russia is over this summer i believe. Maybe a EU country will accept him with the latest revelations?


    Doubt it. Russia told him to stop as a condition of his amnesty. He promised he would. Low and behold he's still doing it. He's still handing out documents with anyone who asks. He had a hard time finding amnesty in Russia after everyone rejected him...I doubt after burning the "russian bridge" that he had anyone else will roll the dice on him. He's only left with the option of third world nations and those ruled by dictators such as Ecuador, Venezuela, etc. The ones he outright dismissed before...and who knows that snub might come back to haunt him too. I think eventually he'll have to come back to the US to stand for his crimes and serve them as he should.

    Objectively he has. Multiple AQ affiliates have now altered they way they communicate based off of the Snowden revelations, removing our ability to track their movements and planning efforts, and enabling them in launching attacks. You can say that increased American casualties are the price you are willing to pay for an IC that asks everyone nicely rather than spies on them for their information, but don't pretend that there is no trade-off.

    And just last night for Cuccinelli, Ron Paul came very close to supporting what Snowden did, along with all of the parts of his rant..Get rid of the fed, the 17th, 16th, clamp down on the 4th, state's rights completely, guns are for more than hunting, etc.
