It has to be a question of priorities.
What is more important, that the Guardian published excerpts of information it received through alleged illegal means, or the agencies that were
exposed for carrying out illegal data gathering and intercepts on innocent people.
Last time I checked, the laws were all quite clear on the illegal interception and the requirements for obtaining legal authority to do so. However,
as we all know and, lets be honest, have known or suspected for decades, they have been doing this illegally anyway and scoffing at the laws and
constitution that they swear to uphold.
That last bit always makes me chuckle when I see US politicians (and British too) calling Mr. Snowden a traitor, when they themselves have violated
the very oaths they took to defend the constitution when taking up their political positions.
I guess it's just the Orwellian way of things, where pointing out the criminals makes one a criminal too!
