        Thank you.

        It's been like a couple arguing about whether the UPS guy is good or evil after he drops off the blow up doll the husband ordered without informing the wife.

        No one wants to talk about the plastic in the room.

        public debate about Constitutional rights and government surveillance, the Patriot Act, and any number of other issues, than anyone in a generation or more. Why so reluctant to talk about his and other whistleblowers revelations?

          I am just personally of the opinion that once he made those revelations he personally ceased to matter all that much.

          In my opinion he was never the story, nor should he have been... The information he leaked? Yes, that was important, but Snowden?

          Not so much... He's a guy that let everyone know about some important information... the information should be the story, not him. I could give a rat's ass about him.

          My two cents.

            the administration's heavy-handed persecution of him as a whistle-blower. That's the OTHER big story he's related to, in addition to the NSA revelations.
