The Russians already knew what was going on. It is the American people that are getting an awakening.

I agree with Mr. Putin. We foisted Snowden on Russia. We need to do the right thing and take him off their hands.

So the Most Transparent Administration Ever™ has driven an intelligence goldmine into the welcoming arms of the opposition. Good job guys.

Just when you thought this Snowden thing would simply go away, and then presto its back in the news again. A bad case of Groundhog day.

Vlad, problem solved. One way ticket on Aeroflot to Reagan National. We'll pay. Now stop backing the Syrians and we'll call it even.

When an individual reveals government wrongdoing that is more egregious than the laws he is breaking that is the definition of a whistle blower. According to a recent Quinipac University poll 55%, a majority of Americans, consider Snowden a whistle blower verses 37% who call him a traitor. The younger the voting age the more likely they believe Snowden is a whistle blower. It is ironic that those who are angry with Snowden for fleeing to Russia want the U.S. to be more like Russia.

Americans are obviously suffering from Stockholm syndrome. The spy apparatus is against the American people and breaks all Constitutional and privacy laws. Snowden is a real American patriot. America originally separated itself from England because they searched houses without warrants now the US Government does the same thing but on a much larger scale (emails, phone calls, video chats, ect). I am certain 9-11 was an inside job and the Patriot Act, NDAA, and Prism were all planned to be rolled out many years ago.
