    In America, it's your right, and, apparently, your duty to be ignorant.

    •  Here's the thing (0+ / 0-)

      Snowden is a thief, plain and simple. The law is very clear on this. He is a lot worse than a thief because he stole classified information and fled the country with them.

      You may choose to ignore it, but that doesn't make that simple fact go away.

      The presumption must be that he has or will give the information to a foreign government. The US government would be stupid to believe that Snowden's intentions are not to compromise the United States. The "trust me, I'm a good guy" defense doesn't work if you have already broken a bunch of laws and are a self proclaimed thief.

      Calling me ignorant doesn't change these basic facts.

        you put more weight on his "crime" than the service he's performed for the citizens of this country and others around the world.

        That tells me all I need to know about you on this issue.
