Cheney outs Valerie Plame, getting many undercover people killed and gets away with it. Snowden is charged with a crime. What's wrong with this picture?

Cheeny's war crimes caused thousands of deaths of Americans. Snowden's crimes undoubtedly will. If no one trusts out government, we are sure to fail. Obama has followed the Congressional mandates and Court supervision of the data gathering of the NSA. Bush and Cheeny ignored both. Doesn't anyone see the difference?

buttles "Why has this man not been tried for war crimes?" Because the Democrat majority voted for the war. Doesn't matter why, they voted for it. Obama, by not bringing our troops home, is adding to those attrocities.
