When a Chinese dissident breaks an illegitimate Chinese law the West applauds. When an American whistleblower reveals hidden crimes the accomplices of these crimes cry foul. Transparency in political matters is claimed only when the other has something to hide.

Nothing about the Snowden Affair smells quite right. It is one thing to break the law to reveal the existence of a secret NSA surveillance program. But there was little secret about this program.

What Don't We Know About Edward Snowden?

By supplying his name, Snowden is sticking two fingers up at the United States intelligence community. Another possibility is that in supplying his name, he's added further fuel to a fire that's blazing across the political landscape of America.

Whether a "whistleblower," as Edward Snowden is inevitably being called, is good or bad, helpful or damaging, is an unavoidable and fundamental question, thus also inevitably divisive.

If Edward Snowden Is in Trouble, So Is Journalism

The Precarious State of Our Civil Liberties

Matthew Dunn | Posted 08.11.2013 | Politics
Matthew Dunn

What worries me about programs like the NSA's PRISM is that human judgment comes into play too far down the line. Vast computers are collecting electronic communications data, and, by extension, data on people, and it is possible that millions of those people are law-abiding Americans.

Your DNA is being filed away in a national data base, and your phone calls -- within and outside the U.S. -- are being tapped and stored by your government. There is one thread linking these two stories: our government's frightful and fanatical intrusion into our personal lives.

In Chicago, on the South and West sides, police surveillance cameras, with their branded flashing blue lights, checkered borders and official insignia, have been peeping the activities of the citizenry from atop light poles since 2003.

If the NSA's Spying on Us, I'm Going Down

Am I naïve enough to believe the government hasn't being spying on us all this time? No, that's ridiculous. Am I still really mad that it's official? Yes. It's like when your significant other admits to cheating on you even though you already presumed it was the case.
