Snowden himself has now directly called Putin out for lying about Russian surveillance, and said that his question was designed to act similar to Senator Ron Wyden's now famous question to James Clapper, leading to Clapper's lie, which (in part) sparked Snowden's decision to finally release the files he'd been collecting.
I don't care about the NSA protecting US national security. I'm not naive, and that is their job after all.
“The NSA claiming its spying to foil terror is a bald-faced lie,” Lendman said in an interview on Wednesday. The claims are “absolutely false,” he said. “I have proved it myself in my own writings over a number of years.” The American activist said the NSA spying “is not about foiling terrorism. It’s about control. It’s about dominance at home. It’s about ending personal privacy.” acenewsservices.com...
The fact that everyone now knows was the point of "inventing" Edward Snowden. Do you see anyone in everyday life changing anything they do? With the release of the supposedly Earth-shattering information he divulged, people still buy smartphones, use Facebook and buy every electronic gadget they can get their hands on. Snowden's revelations have done nothing other than to indoctrinate everyone into the surveillance state and little is being done about it. Now liberals are fully behind it because we have a liberal president, who they will go to their graves defending, justifying and defending the spying. When it happened under Bush they were screaming about it. Snowden is a "false prophet". He exists to indoctrinate the masses - not wake them up. He exists to force people to keep their thoughts to themselves and to expose others. He is a manchurian candidate.

Snowden is flapping in the wind like a paper bag. I don't buy what he is trying to sell anymore. He is a traitor. I supported him and what he was doing. I did find it sketchy him hiding out in Russia and then you add him cuddling up with Putin and you get a big pile of traitor.
He can try and spin this a 1000 ways from Tuesday I see the truth.
You don't have to "buy what he's selling". You don't have to do anything and what you think is of very little importance. What is of major importance is that before Snowden, the majority of Americans would have NEVER thought the federal government was as wildly out of control, lawless and in violation of our guaranteed rights. You can say he is a traitor, you can say you see the truth, your full of it.
You see nothing and so did hundreds of thousands of other Americans until he spelled it out for you. Your self righteous condemnation in the face of truth is appalling and quite frankly, a little sickening.
Next time you out the biggest affront to 300 million US citizens and their God given and guaranteed Constitutional rights, let me know.

Why should anyone want to hang a hero for making sure we know who is spying on us because I cannot see your logic ?
