    You still haven't answered his question, imo.

    'We're talking about an individual who committed a crime under US law and who put USServicemen and women in danger because of it.'

    Where is your link to evidence that Snowden's actions 'put USServicemen and women in danger'?

    If we don't have it/can't make it we really don't need it. If there is some exception to that rule we have the lead, copper, steel, and warm bodies to TAKE IT rather than bargaining with people who we know are not truly our friends.

    I'm definitely anti-social. That's not news around here.

    If we were having a debate you would be right. However, as the individual in question knows, I do not debate, since it's a worthless form of interaction. I will participate in a discussion of opinions, but that is all and he full well knows that; as you do now.

    (he has been nominated, apparently)
    Yes! Just like Obama's win, it would show it up for what it is.
    Afterwards he should go straight to jail.

    The people that yammer about the NSA haven't given it much thought or are talking an ideological line.

    I can respect that. In fact, I agree completely; debating usually is worthless...a waste of time.

    That is why I usually just look for facts/data to teach/learn and skip the long-winded back-and-forth's.


    But, I am quite sure you are aware that making assertions without evidence to back them up leaves the assertion as little more then an unsubstantiated opinion.

    Fair enough...you are certainly entitled to your opinion.

    Are you questioning that? I could hardly believe anyone could in good faith.

    My opinions are the only things that matter in my world. I skip the long-winded back-and-forth without wasting the time on trying to teach anyone anything. I know my opinion will not be changed, nor likely will there's, so why waste the time trying?

    And, of course, he took all of that NSA information with him to one of the most repressive and regressive regimes on the planet. On the bright side for Eddie, however, its doubtful that the Russians had to torture him to get the information.
