This thing with Snowden is just one example of how they run their administration like a Chicago street gang.
Ah...um. So massive security breachers are OK with you? Is that it?

Massive security breaches to bring to American's attention they were being spied on by their own government. Did the Obama Administration really believe they could get away with it forever? Of course they did. Someone had to report them, and BTW wouldn't you like to know what else they are doing in your name all over the world? It took courage to do what Snowden did, and he will pay the ultimate price if the current government finds him before he finds asylum.

NSA monitors all sorts of international communications traffic. That was always their purpose. Nothing to do with Obama.

So then you ARE in favor of massive security breaches which leave us open to terrorism? Just trying to get an answer here, sorry.

Did spying on Americans uncover the Ft Hood shooter that massacred all those people? NO. Did spying on all those Americans find the Boston Bombers that tried to blow up Boston? No. So what makes you think they can find any one doing anything, besides ordering pizza on a Saturday night? Our current government is totally inept. They can't succeed at doing anything

Yes, there's a bridge, but no explanation on why your government is a total failure. This administration was supposed to be better then the last one. It isn't.

where are we open for terrorism? As those have been saying, the program has been semi public for years. You really think terrorist are using gmail, facebook and the like? You think they are skyping and have cell contracts withe att, verizon, or sprint?

What docs was it specifically that snowden released that has made us "open to terrorism"? Seems that since he started leaking, the gov is moving to declassify more and more docs and are giving out more info now than ever. If what he is leaking is so bad, then why is the gov turning around and giving us even MORE info?

So if surveillance doesn't uncover problems that it couldn't possibly uncover, like the Ft. Hood shootings, it's worthless? Just toss it all out?

You still haven't answered my questions.

Terrorists communicate, the government says they've stopped numerous plots. Can you contradict them? Do you have that information?

If what he's leaking isn't a problem, why is the government bending heaven and earth to deny him sanctuary and bring him back for trial? Of course it was important.

It's simply absurd to claim that the Obama Administration is a "total failure," especially compared to Bush's Administration.

did they show you the proof? Or are you just taking their word that they are looking out for your best interest? The first 2 instances they pointed two were investigations started by british intelligence. So while they may have helped the investigation, they by no means were the beginning of it. At that point they could have easily gotten warrants for that info instead of mass spying. You seem to think they are mass spying for your own good and believe in false instances and dont bat a eye when they lie to you.

I on the other hand do not outright blindly trust what they say when they have to hold secret trials on secret interpretations laws. Trust is a two way street.

Two countries offered Snowden asylum, and it is now believed he is already in one. So, where are the accomplishments? And better yet, why can't he find Snowden? The problem for Obama is he does not even know exactly what secrets Snowden has escaped with on those 4 laptops.

When your speculation reaches the level of proof, get back to me, OK?

"beleived" by whom, moron? He's in Russia still. There's no evidence he's elsewhere. You'd believe anything which reflected badly on our President. You are a compulsive partisan liar.

You have no idea where Snowden is, and neither does your inept President. Wake Obama when it is over. He needs his sleep. He's on the links early tomorrow,

Really what has Obama done since he was re elected 8 months ago? He is not a leader, so the Republicans won't follow him. Now that the Democrats see his approval rate falling, they don't want him either. What to do, what to do? I know, start a race war by sending people from the DOJ to Florida to protest, and teach the other stupid people how to protest. Pay the deadbeats enough and they will do anything.

Today we tracked a plane from Russia, to Cuba. Who could be on that plane? Not Snowden. He was on another one we didn't track, because we were tracking the wrong plane.
