Not all whistle blowers are Snowden.
We have laws protecting whistle blowers as they help keep our government open to the voters.
You and any other progressives chanting "You either all in for Obama or traitor" are brain washed sheep. I have no patience for those you sold themselves to a leader.
Scat now!
OBama has been ruthless to whistle blowers prosecuting more than any other admin in first four years.
It's a fact!
Obama is going after those that leak classified Information. It is a crime.

I guess you want our secrets published on line.

Leaking a classified military operation putting soldiers at risk. Yep Whatever is for it.

Leaking how we track potential terrorists & break up plots, yep Whatever is for it.

The obama administration seems to be going out of the way to prove the republican conspiracies about them are true.

Obama's pledge of transparency??!!!!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....
The Chinese and the Russians AND the Muslim Terrorist networks are all making a fool of the Magic Negro and you want us to believe that he's doing something serious to 'protect' us?
Like having the IRS screw over his political opposition? Like violating the 1st Amendment by spying on the press and their families and friends?
The Russians warned him about the Boston Bombers and nothing happened and all of those billions of daily data gatherings amount to ...what? 9 Muslims terrorists have made it to their targets during his golfing watch while ZRO occurred after 9/11 on Bush's watch.
We have a boy in the White House enjoying his family vacations, Dood. And nothing more.

Snowden is another liberal gone 'rogue'. We see a lot of that, don't we? He proves liberals don't need guns to kill innocent Americans.

Real Dave trying to attack people who point out this admin's treatment of reporters and whistle blowers calling them traitors is a mindless Progressive talking point that will divide America.

Why? This is the logical continuation of Congress' ceding of authority to the Executive, been going on for the last century. The shickenchits set up Presidents to take the fall for their failures, that is when they're not busy riding their coattails. Sure, Congressional approval may be flirting with single digits but in 2014 the majority of individual members will be re-elected.
lily tells us that Obama is powerless to control the NSA.

My point exactly. If this was so important and effective why all these missed targets who had left their fingerprints all over the exact places PRISM was watching? How about Snowden, Manning et. al.? I find it hard to swallow that the program performed as they're claiming it did, I wouldn't expect them to come out and say it was a flop.
Galt thinks there may be two reasons.

First, the NSA is casting too wide a net instead of focusing on the most likely problems.

Second, the NSA is spending only a fraction of its time and effort on terrorism and instead directing assets to snooping for other purposes.

Or, maybe you are correct and the program is totally ineffective.
