    GaryO,
    for once I agree with you. no, the world is NOT coming to an end.

    Churchill was so protective of the Ultra secret that he did not warn the citizens of Canterbury they would be bombed so hitler's boys would not figure out that he had broken their code.

    Snowden can rot in russia

    Gildas,
    unfortunately there is precendent for support for a POTUS who violates the supreme law of the land. look at what FDR did to american citizens with Japanses ancestry during WWII

    just look at how many times BO has been reprimanded by the SCOTUS. of course, he does not have the support of the majority of the people, so perhaps he is a bad example (in more ways than one!!!)

    GaryO:

    I am of course familiar with your argument; it is the usual one we hear justifying the meticulous spying on millions of our own people, without probable cause, which is unconstitutional. If an administration violates the supreme law of the land, should we support it? I wish the powers that be would be as zealous in finding terrorists at airports etc, (have they found any yet?) or of prosecuting known terorists such as the Fort Hood murderer, as in singling out conservative groups and using the IRS to harrass them.

    I think that, if the people of the United States could be convinced their government were on their side they would have more sympathy.

    Hey Gildas -

    "This is shameful: An American must find sanctuary in the erstwhile Soviet Union for promoting transparency in government and eschewing the spying on the American people"

    WRONG

    What's shameful are the deluded Americans who think it's OK for Snowden to betray his country by giving information to the enemy.

    Surveilance secrets should be kept secret. That's why they're called secrets.

    When the allies broke the Germans Enigma code during WWII, should they have told everyone?

    No, of course not. That kind of "transparency" is STUPID.

    This is shameful: An American must find sanctuary in the erstwhile Soviet Union for promoting transparency in government and eschewing the spying on the American people. It has also become a great propaganda coup for Russia, so is hurting us in two very major ways.
