Snowden and Manning are taking the slow tortuous route, while buddhist monks took the ghastly quick alternative of self immolation and jihadists take the bloody path of blowing themselves up.

Assange, Manning and Snowden looked beyond their lives for a cause.

The government will now focus, develop programs to ferret out ideolouges in society.

If ANYTHING, Assange, Manning and Snowden have shown how CARELESS, IMPERFECT and EASILY PENETRATED our spy system is in the USA.

The Standard 'old men' trying to wrap their heads around a totally new system of operations.

Damn scary!

We should applaud these 3 for showing the holes in our vast spying programs. How can we, our country and the people within, be safe when these small potatoes can take advantage of a very flawed and untended system.

Too vast to be contained. Can't see the trees through the forest.

This is what I find amusing about this Snowden deal.

For years, people have been screaming that the government has been spying on it's citizens. And whenever the people would say it or bring it up, those that are constantly stuck arguing D's or R's looked upon the people as if they were crazy, tin foil hat wearing, psyco's.

And for years there have been mainstream media reports coming out confirming it. But, the main establishment followers still refused to see it.

Now, Snowden leaks documentation of the government doing the things the people already knew about. But here is the difference. He has the proof. While all of the others knew it was going on, there were whistleblowers, but, there was no hard factual evidence in written form to prove it.

So the government broke the law. They broke the law of the land by violating the constitutional boundries that are applied to them. So the government then "classifies" the programs that were used to break the law. Thus covering up the fact that they were breaking the law.

I leave it with this. Who is the criminal here?

I hope Snowden gets away, If Obama can't even catch him, then he deserves what ever was done.Since Liberals love to say that Obama caught Osama by himself, with no help from Bush.... then why can't he catch this one? LOL

Oh my God, I hope so. I am thinking Snowden is in his Daddy's basement with 3 or 4 computers, still spying for whoever, and Obama has the FBI, the DEA, the IRS, the AG, and the Unions all trying to find him. Now that is funny. He is probably recovering from plastic Surgery, and will walk the Red Carpet for the next big Hollywood movie. He is very smart for a HS drop out, makes all those Affirmative Action Harvard guys look pretty stupid. I must say I thought Carter and Clinton were incompetent, but this guy makes Carter look like a genius. At least they surrounded themselves with competent people.
