Barack Obama is the head of the federal government and this happened on his watch. 1.7 MILLION files? How could this happen without red lights flashing at the White House? Snowden is responsible, Obama is complicit.

Mike Rodgers has lost all credibility, his committee is the one supposed to be protecting us from this sort of thing.

Trust me, if this would have happened with President Bush, you would not be blaming the head of committee of the House of Representatives. It's Barack Obama who has lost all credibility.

"Report says some of 1.7M records put troops at risk." I got lost at the title of the story - scratching my head wondering how computer files could possibly put troops already in incredible danger in a combat zone, in more danger. Actually, these files are our soldiers' friend. These files reveal a plan for civil war here in America and strandation of our overseas troops, with NO possible way back home to fight the tyranny of the enemy. Edward Snowden is NOT a criminal as accused, he is a true PATRIOT who did his duty to country by whistle-blowing on HUGE government corruption. You have not seen anything yet, folks.

Snowden put troops at risk? Haha, good one. Does this mean Snowden will be retiring to a gated community in Texas to live out his days painting portraits of himself in his bathtub? Who got more troops and innocent civilians killed- Cheney/Bush/Rumsfeld or Snowden? These attempts by the govt media to villify Snowden are absolutely disgusting. We deserve better government.

Perhaps Mr. Mike Rogers would care to explain why the NSA was gathering data on US military operations. Or maybe he would like to explain why the data gathered from all branches of the military was pooled together in a single place. If an amateur contractor can get his hands on all of that data you can be sure Russia, China, and other large governments already have their own copy of it. Even a child knows you don't put all of your eggs in one basket. The NSA's database is not only an invasion of privacy, it is also a huge liability to this country.

"Could" gravely impact national security? I think I've heard that a dozen times about what was copied and released, and thus far nothing bad has happened other than the NSA getting embarassed about just how far it was going in snooping on us. I won't call Snowden a hero nor a traitor, but it seems clear he has succeeded in showing how far the government pries into our lives, and hasn't done anything that's causing anyone to be killed.

Snowden is a true patriot. A great American that has put himself at risk of peril in defense of our freedoms.

Both parties have just about run this country into the ground with their greed, incompetence and a corporate agenda that doesn't give a hoot about it citizens only about the top 1%, how bad does it have to get before people snap out of this evil spell? I would vote any day and any way for the honorable Edward Snowden! I nominate Mr. Snowden for President!!
