    I was posting a detailed comment and lost it clicking the wrong tab. Damn.

    But where it leads is this episode of Bill Moyers Journal, "Tough Talk on Impeachment" where Bruce Fein and John Nichols made what has turned out to be prophetic predictions about where the unchecked Executive Overreach of the Bush-Cheney administration would lead the next President if not challenged.

    They were spot on and Fein burns on the issue. I highly recommend to watch both videos.

    Part 1
    Part 2

    Feign made an impassioned appeal to the son on behalf of the father, but I'm sure he also counseled the father of the poor prospects for any future outside a prison his son would have.

    I rather imagine that Fein had a straight talk with Snowden's father about how whistle blowers are treated and what it's like to spend the rest of your life in a 10x10 cell in a Super Max prison.

    And I imagine the progress on Bradley Manning's trial weighs on his mind as well.

    Snowden has no obligation to make himself a martyr by returning to the USA and would be foolish to do so.

    Anyone questioning his motives or bravery because he hasn't is blowing smoke and ignoring the facts of his disclosures.
