Snowdon really stuck the knife in and for what? All it has done is made the job of being a security service employee intolerably difficult. All we got was grainy little videos of enemies being bombed.

Apparently employees are leaving the NSA in droves according to RT this morning. It is being reported that employees are leaving the NSA because of the toxic work environment. I linked to a Times article from few days ago, but RT are suggesting it is largely to do with the employees having to report constantly on each other. Of course, RT are likely to exxagerate and propagandize according to their own tastes, but there must be some issues that are maing work conditions at the agency intolerable to many.
Employees are being forced to spy on each other in an attempt to stop the Snowdon Syndrome of betraying one's country and one's people. All those fools have done is made the NSA have to conduct itself in this manner. I have zero respect for Julian, for Snowdon (especially) and Private Manning. What did they achieve other than force the NSA to clamp down in this manner? They achieved nothing.
America, you have been far too soft. When somebody commits an act of treason and betrayal like this, betraying ther own people and their own nation, the law must deal with them appropriately. Nine tenths of the law should be about prevention. If it does not then you are destroying your own security services and your own SECURITY. The security services are vital. Don't let the globa;lists destroy that, too.

You're advocating a free rein for government and their security services , illegal activities are illegal whether they are committed by an individual or a State , whistle blowers blow the whistle for a reason not fun.
