"All I hear in the press all day is how great Snowden did this, or how wonderfully Snowden did that. Snowden, Snowden, Snowden!"
I still think Snowden's a walking dead man but perhaps I underestimate the fed.gov's willingness to grind down a man in jail and in court instead of just rubbing him out.. As for what he's done, it's almost certainly a crime (right up there with the three felonies a day most folks average, just doing normal activities); but didn't Mr. Obama's Administration sail into office promising to be "the most transparent in history?" In that case, Edward Snowden's done 'em a favor, the equivalent of the bum with a bucket of water and rag ambush-cleaning car windshields at a stoplight. --Yeah, window-cleaning urban outdoorsmen aren't popular, but that seagull-splatter's not gonna clean itself, no more than the Feds ever will, no matter who's lurking in the Oval Office like a rat under the White House floorboards or how "transparently" they go about the sordid business of governing.
