Snowden is now acting as Agent to further the interests of China. This may or may not have been his intention, but the Chinese are in a position to force him to do their bidding. He is a fool and his actions have damaged and may continue to erode the freedoms he believes he is defending. Contrary to the old saying the truth doesn't always set you free. The result of his actions is to reduce the influence and trust of the American Government. Who will Americans and the World trust instead?

I think there were better ways to handle his desire to prove to the American people how bad our government is, spying, and undermining our democracy, but he did us all a favor.

Yes, who can Americans trust when their own government shows itself to not be worthy OF trust??

Very good question.

Time for political house-cleaning in the next election ....

He is a fool...worse yet, a fool on a mission....much as i would ever desire to agree with Cheney....Snowden is a traitor, for his wish to comprimise U.S. Security......

That will be Repubs being kicked out to the curb for their obstructionism. People hate Congress, and blame the GOPee most of all for its problems.

We'll likely see Dem majorities in both wings of Congress. Then...it'll be on them to get something good done. For a change.

An ENEMY of the state is dangerous in China, as is the enemy in the WhiteHouse.

Since our National Security Agency admitted to monitoring phone records and internet dialogue,would it be a stab in the dark that our NSA also provide internet moles to internet sites that did not suit their purposes and provide interference/propaganda to those that questioned some governmental dealings/agendas..or are we to believe they just took a back seat and monitored these internet sites...Is the 9/11 conspiracists who believe our government planted demolition devices to take down the twin towers,actually NSA moles who create this fantacy to throw one plausable explanation to the side.THAT THE nsa knew about 9/11 though did not prevent it to garner more power and job security?or was it incompetence?either or the NSA WAS SUPPOSE TO PREVENT 9/11.IT DID NOT.....why were they not punished/fired/demoted for not doing their job correctly?instead they earned more power and monetary gains....

Snowden committed treason.
He uncovered zero crimes
other than his loyalty to
China, our #1 enemy.

He can rot in China with
his ball-less, spineless self.
Cowards like him never
face their crimes, they
run. Reminds me
of Dick and Bush after 9/11.
