Thought you OWS takers hated Cheney. Now you're quoting him from a Fox news show?
Wow! Desperate, eh?
Hypocrisy Overload: Dick Cheney Calls Edward Snowden a Traitor
Dick Cheney helped mislead the country into invading Iraq and has been convicted of war crimes, but he thinks Edward Snowden is a traitor.
....What the former vice president left out of the conversation was that Snowden would have never had access to classified information without the explosion of the private contractor intelligence industry after the Patriot Act was passed. Without the Patriot Act, Edward Snowden may not have been in position to access classified information.
Cheney was part of an administration that fabricated intelligence in order to mislead the country into invading Iraq, so I donít think he has any room to be tossing the traitor word around.
The former vice presidentís capacity for hypocrisy is astounding. Ultimately Edward Snowden is responsible for his own actions, but the policies of Bush/Cheney administration opened the door for this to happen.
The word traitor is being thrown around almost as often as the term whistle blower, but I am not comfortable with either description. The facts are that Snowden is a leaker, who definitely committed crimes. If Edward Snowden did pass intelligence to the Chinese, he is a traitor and a spy.(Interestingly, if Snowden did or does pass information to the Chinese, what does that make Glenn Greenwald?)
being amused by right wing hypocrisy does not equate to desperation.
