Seems like a case of the frying pan calling the skillet black, how can one steal what was stolen to start with?

Snowdin told the truth about the NSA undermining privacy of every innocent American boy, girl, woman and men by collecting their e-mails, pictures, u tubes, telephone calls for lifetime thus breaking the constitution law known as the Fourth Amendment. The fact that most US Congress were not aware of the spying of the anti-American regime of Obama on innocent Americans while refusing to listen to the anti-American Mosque agenda and giving a pass to the Chechnya terrorists that attacked Boston Marathon, giving pass to Jihadist Major Hassan who killed American troops in Fort Hood and hundreds of Mozlem Brother threats prove that there is no justification to denying the Fourth Amendment wit lies about security. Will American people trust the henchmen of the IRS and NSA to spy on the private life, bank account, savings and personal connections and ideology of every American when they allow terrorists free from Gitmo and allowing them to go back on their killing American spree?

Snowden, the 'hero', is reported in Russia. Curious that he is visiting the USA's rivals for power in the world. Is Iran next? Why didn't he hide out with his hero-worshipers in the USA?(PS-none of those rivals even gives lip service to liberty)

You people are as stupid as Snowden and I would be willing to wager that none of you have ever had a security clearance. The man wasn't given a security clearance against his will, you accept that responsibility with certain jobs. Then to top it all off, the MORON didn't really tell us anything we didn't already know.

Hes a traitor and a criminal and should be imprisoned for a very long time.

And he's an utter coward to boot, running away like a b*tch. If he really felt so strongly that he was right to leak this then why not stand up and face the sh*tstorm that he created?

a coward, a traitor, and a criminal. i hope he goes to prison and spends a long time being some huge guy's wife.

Snowden is an american hero. He should be celebrated in a ticker tape parade. Eric Holder, on the other hand, should be handcuffed, shackled and thrown in the slammer. The poor guy that made the video they blamed the Benghazi terror attack on should be released from jail since we all know it was a sham and he was their scapegoat.
