  •  Yeah, but at the same time (0+ / 0-)

    He gave US citizens operational data on US intelligence surveillance and control techniques presumably aimed at us.

    Even if their intentions are "good" we all have to watch what we say and be compliant now regardless

    •  If he had only stopped at that... (0+ / 0-)

      Instead, he fled to China and gave them solid intelligence. He is a traitor, plain and simple

      •  He had to flee somewhere. (0+ / 0-)

        I'm sure everybody everywhere jumped to the same question when they found out whether he went there.  Is he even SAFE there?  Could they just throw a blanket over his head and send him home in a diplomatic pouch and given the Bradley Manning treatment?

        Given the high stakes, I can't criticize him for going to Hong Kong.  He couldn't stay here, not in the present police state environment.
