Our "government" needs to stop living in, and promoting, fear of what "might" happen and get back to the business of building a better country. Unfortunately our representatives have taken to the idea that they know what is best for us without the courtesy of telling us.

Snowden might not be a traitor, but at best he is just a misguided narcissist who arrogantly chose to attack the security of where he worked because "my bosses ignored me" and "we all could use the information do do bad stuff." I've got news for you. There are lots of information gatherers who can and do use their information to do bad stuff. For the convenience of using credit cards, banks, hospitals, and even paying taxes, we all risk some of our security. Should we eliminate police...

Snowden might not be a traitor, but at best he is just a misguided narcissist who arrogantly chose to attack the security of where he worked because "my bosses ignored me" and "we all could use the information do do bad stuff." I've got news for you. There are lots of information gatherers who can and do use their information to do bad stuff. For the convenience of using credit cards, banks, hospitals, and even paying taxes, we all risk some of our security. Should we eliminate police records from crime scenes, criminal records, and education information? How about security cameras in stores and high crime areas? All these things invade privacy and information from them could be used against us. If Snowden actually could name a case where someone was damaging a citizen by abusing the information, by all means, report it, Real whistle blowers do this all the time. Fools like Snowden just develop paranoid fantasies about what people "could do

(Oops, mistakenly hit "enter" before finished.) My point is that if Snowden really wanted to help anyone, he should have waited until he had a real case of abuse and only blow the whistle if superiors covered it up. His screaming about the agency having the necessary power and secrecy to do its very serious job for no reason other than to make himself a "hero" to wacko right-wing conspiracy theorists and try to supply more mud for the bigots to sling at Obama is probably about as close to...

If terrorists succeed in killing a few thousand more Americans because some hands are tied at the NSA, not only will those touting Snowden as a hero be screaming for his head, the NSA will gain carte Blanche to do whatever it wants. After another 9/11, congressional show-boaters will expand the power that NSA has today to nearly infinite proportions. If you want to limit the NSA's power, you better let them do all they can to catch the bad guys.

I can understand Mr. Snowden alerting the citizens of the united states about un warranted spying and actions by our own government aginst it's citizens that would be perceived as unconstitutional and tyrannical ( in its modern English usage, is a ruler of a cruel and oppressive character[1] who is an absolute ruler unrestrained by law or constitution, and/or one who has usurped legitimate sovereignty.)

I can understand Mr. Snowden alerting the citizens of the united states about un warranted spying and actions by our own government aginst it's citizens that would be perceived as unconstitutional and tyrannical ( in its modern English usage, is a ruler of a cruel and oppressive character[1] who is an absolute ruler unrestrained by law or constitution, and/or one who has usurped legitimate sovereignty.) We have a constitution that protects us all from this type action form "our" government (and I use that term lightly) the problem I have with Mr. Snowdens actions are that he has fled to Hong Kong and informed the Chinese of our covert actions against them and now has fled to Russia and we don't know what information he has offered them or any other nation that we perceived as a possible threat. That I agree is treason. When you divulge the actions our country takes to protect it's self and gather information to base our military action on is wrong on so many levels.

You mean Mr. Snowden should have waited till 'there was a body' i.e. after there was a victim? Why is nobody questioning the legitimacy of the NSA's actions?

I do not know Mr. Snowden's motives however, spying on American citizens without just cause and genuine and proper due process is obviously un-constitutional . It is obvious to everyone except our ruling elite.
