So he's gone from exposing domestic surveillance to exposing foreign intelligence operations. Against the country to which he appears to have defected. Can we stop pretending he's a techno-libertarian hero? He's Phillip Agee for the Bradley Manning generation.

You have to go back a few years but remember all the under water cables that were cut? And the US had the only company able to go in and magically fix them?

At first this was all fine and dandy because it painted our government as untrustworthy to our people. Now that other countries are involved, the US (it's citizens) might get back-doored.
Possible scenario: Other countries distrust the US = spies in the states
Spies in the states = increased surveillance.
This could come full circle and completely screw everyone that are in support of him.
*edit: Hell it would screw everyone not in support of him too!
