    You are implying that he released everything he took. He did not.

    And no, Im not a rape advocate.
    Then there is no reason to joke about it, especially when the victim is a defender of the US Constitution.

    Re: Edward Snowden NBC NEWS FULL INTERVIEW

    Did I mention he is a hero?

    Well, just in case I did not mention he is a hero...he is a hero.

    Btw, we all know who I am saying is a hero right?

    Well, just in case...Edward Smowden is a hero.

    So, to sum up...Edward Enowdrn is a hero.




    'hero  

    he·ro [heer-oh] Show IPA
    noun, plural he·roes; for 5 also he·ros.
    1.
    a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
    2.
    a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal: He was a local hero when he saved the drowning child.'

    Ah. Then I think you meant to say has thus far had published; because he released all that crap, it's simply not currently available open-source, but on whatever networks the Chinese, Russians, and whomever they have decided to share it with have.

    No he's frigging not. He poses that way so that useful fools will rush to defend him and he can be effective on the world stage as a spoiler for US foreign diplomacy, but if he was merely a defender of the US Constitution then he would not have made public many of the things that he has.

    if you have to dumb-down your definition of "hero" to the point where any traitor or terrorist fits the bill in order to include Snowden, that ought to tell you something.

    Really. That's fascinating. Tell me more about how our defenses and actions against chinese cyber warfare capability have nothing to do with national security? How about our means, methods, and capabilities to collect against the leaders and planners of terrorist organizations - I would love to hear about how that has no impact on national security.

    My definition is the English language definition.

    Which he fits.

    In fact, I think he is a great example of a hero.

    You don't like it...take it up with the people who write the dictionaries.

    I'm sure the British would have called the founding fathers terrorists and traitors as well.

    A counter which A) is incorrect (terrorist wasn't really a term of the time) and B) is immaterial, as their charge would have been incorrect (of terrorism).


    If you have to lower the threshold of 'hero' so that Ahmed Shekau, Zarqawi, Hitler, Pol-Pot, and Charles Manson all apply in order to defend the notion that Snowden is a hero, well, that says a lot more about Snowden than might have been intended.

    Yes, I know the term wasn't used as it is now. However, in today's world, they would be called terrorists and traitors. But there is no treason by the individual if it is the State acting the part of the terrorist.
