    people who call themselves progressives can't or won't tell the difference between optics and substance, because it ruins the pretty narrative they've chosen to hitch their wagon to. Sure, any country that takes in Snowden will be humiliating the US, but the "damage" will be purely optical, not substantive. It won't cost lives or money. Whereas Israel's policies HAVE cost the US lots of lives and money. But we can't say that out loud, because...Israel is our friend!
