How revealing that the perpetrators of mass surveillance violating the Fourth Amendment -- from Cheney on down -- don't have to deal with the "traitor" question. That in CNN debates, in the mass media, this grand stigma -- traitor -- is reserved only for whistleblowers.
It's interesting to see how some have foolishly engaged in a debate about why Snowden has not "come home to face the music." What does that mean? he should come home and go to jail? Are we romanticizing and putting nobility on being locked up? Really?
With every revelation he made last year, Snowden proved himself a person fighting for our democratic way of life at enormous personal risk, not a spy but a patriot. The U.S. Constitution should protect citizens who say the government has gone too far in trampling people's constitutional rights.
