    Probably right around the time he expanded the patriot act.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Maybe Pukin can trot out Snowden during the Winter Olympics and you can applaud.
    Like you did for the soldier last night that Mr. Obama honored.
    Were you this outraged when Cheney wiped his asshole, using your words, with the 4th amendment?

    (he has been nominated, apparently)
    I say yes he deserves the Nobel Peace prize, but I am sure there are more deserving people out there.

    Since you are spewing bull **** then that means you do not wish to answer the question.

    Given his fears of being killed, which are very legitimate, I can see why he chose Moscow. And...Moscow was not where he wanted to end up. Deals had been brokered for him in Iceland and Ecuador however he was forced to stay in Moscow due to passport issues. I would suggest there was nothing Snowden could give them that the he had not already given the world. He had provided the entirety of the documentation he took to the media by this time.

    I don't really buy into the Russian connection honestly. I think it's a safe haven of sorts for him, as his alternative is life in prison or death.

    Outstanding point! 9/11 was horrific but it was preventable. A lack of communication, priority, and action are what caused the breakdown in national security here. Not a lack of intelligence gathering efforts domestically and abroad. Our intelligence community had the information. The Bush administration and intelligence/law enforcement/military leadership failed to understand the imminent nature and act on it. While Clinton took Bin Laden and international terrorism more seriously than Bush did prior to 9/11 he didn't take it seriously enough. Recommendation from U.S. counter terrorism and intelligence assets had been largely neglected. The information was gathered, it was just not taken seriously enough.

    9/11 nor the subsequent "Global War on Terror" are justification for the breach of our liberties and the principles that allegedly identify this country. And the arrogance of "if other countries don't like the U.S. then **** 'em...who needs 'em?" is both ignorant and self destructive. Denying the history of U.S. foreign policy and it's impact on large parts of the world is to expose ourselves to generations of enemies.

    I don't think he should win but who did he put in danger?
