mnavarice: Your government is spying on you and you call a man a traitor for telling you that. Why do you want the government spying on you? Why don't you want to know? Would you leave the door open for them to come in your house and look through your things?

"where he will be afforded due process and all the protections of our criminal justice system." What it really means is he'll sit in prison, protected from the elements, for years before they eventually find enough jurors to convict on whatever charges they manage to prove and have it heard before a real nasty Patriot judge to impose maximum sentencing. I for one appreciate that he called out our neighbors for acting in our best interests. Seems there is a lot of government acting as they wish until legislators explicitely prevent them from doing so; or on paper anyway.

IF his desire was to reform the NSA, there must have been other ways rather than dumping thousands of pages of secrets over the internet.

How about a letter to every congressman on the Intelligance committe saying what is being looked at rather than making our enemies smile with the treasure trove he dumped in their lap??

He did not dump thousands of pages of secrets over the internet or anywhere. He merely exposed that you and I are being spied on by our government. Why do you think it is appropriate for our government to spy in us? Do you really think complaining to the government that spying on us is inappropriate and most likely unconstitutional would get him anywhere?
