First let me say I have always known the Gov't is watching us anyone who believes other wise is a fool. Just look at history...back when Lincoln was President they had people on a watch list.
CC he is NO HERO that I'd want any child to follow.
He broke an OATH to maintain a TOP SECRET program. That is ILLEGAL a FELONY no if ands or buts.
If he believed it was wrong going to China made his move, even if honestly/sincerly done, a major mistake. He should have gone to anyone here like a lawyer or congress person, etc....not China.
If it what NSA was doing ends up being illegal it still will not make him right in what he did.
If you do not agree with what you are doing or seeing you go through the right channels. As a DoD contractor this is something you learn right away as you are told it right up front. It does not say you go to China and make it public.
What he has done is no different than what other spies have done over our history and NOT one them is considered a hero and most faced the right ending.
People like Snowden do not keep the Gov't honest they are part of the problem.
The only people who keep the Gov't honest are those of us who actually pay attention are involved and vote. To many people today vote the party line and support it even faced with facts that show them to be wrong and even lying. counter them.
Today we have the IRS stuff and all Dems want us to believe that the guy in charge NEVER said anything about it in his 127 meetings in the WH. How stupid can you be to actually try and defend that. As well as still not knowing why we did not defend the 4 men killed in Benghazi. Hell even the families have not gotten an answer to that situation.
Look how many supported and fought for Clinton and Bush all the time despite facts to the contrary. It is the US citizens issue to get involved.
BTW comparing this to Mangini and the NFL is absolutely the most ludicrous and dumbest thing EVER POSTED HERE.
Love the Red Sox and enjoy the ride every year
