If the comments identified as Snowden's in this online interview with the Guardian are actually his and reflect how he truly feels, then the question that begs to be asked is why he took the job in the first place.

It’s hard to see how a man of Snowden’s intelligence could have been so naïve about the nature of the job he applied for. And if the NSA is so easily infiltrated by someone hostile to the agency’s mission, then the vetting process failed to do its job.

Why focus on little snowden?

He is nothing in comparison to the NSA, and what they have done, are doing, and can do.

You could say that about any whistle-blower. Asking pointless questions about snowden misses a very much larger issue of '1984' proportions of the Government spying on and its abilities to spy on it's own citizens and trampling on the constitution in the process.

Leakage doesn't matter. People are fooled to believe corrupt leaders. Just take a photo of a leader standing outside of a church with a wife, and children, and he'll be voted father of the year. Or walking around with a pet dog, and people will assume he's a great caring man.

It's this kind of deception which has led to corruption being voted in, followed by citizens fleeing the country for greener pastures when things don't go as promised.

Let's hope our recent immigrants don't vote in the same type of leadership they left.

the truth,

There's a world of difference between a whistle blower and an attention seeker.

Craig,

How else can Snowden expose the amount of corruption that exists in our government without drawing attention? The attention he draws is the only thing keeping him safe.

I also find your concern that the NSA needs a stronger vetting process peculiar. Does the NSA's mission trump the protections afforded by the 4th Amendment? Does Snowden owe his allegiance to the NSA or does he owe his allegiance to the Constitution and his countrymen?

Obey,

"...How else can Snowden expose the amount of corruption that exists in our government..."

If and when Snowden exposes corruption in our government, I’ll stand in line to shake his hand. But all he’s done so far is leak to the press classified information for which he had security clearance in top secret NSA surveillance programs for which to date I’ve seen no evidence of corruption or illegality presented. If his loyalty is to the Constitution, he sure has some peculiar ideas on how to show it.
