Edward Snowden for President?

Is anyone else outraged over the U.S. Government's snooping on us citizens?

Is Edward Snowden a traitor or a hero?

As more information comes to light about the intrusions by our own U.S. Government, it's looking like Snowden is a hero. Check out today's news.

If the beginning of this paragraph doesn't scare you, maybe you'd better have another latté with a couple of extra shots of something strong in it. "If the NSA wants 'to listen to the phone,' an analyst's decision is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required,..."

And then, of course, there is the Patriot Act and its provision for self-written search warrants and the provision that you can't tell anyone about it, if you get served with one - not even your own lawyer. How does five years in the Federal pen sound to you? Is this still part of the law? How did it ever get there in the first place?

Wake up, America! "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."

He's a hero for now but when it is revealed that he has been selling or giving away secrets to the Chinese or Russians, I suspect his status will change. If it hasn't already.

I'm not sure the word "hero" is correct in any event.
