    Telling all those secrets, the CIA must be mad at his lack of support and commitment.

    We should not be as concerned with Snowden and more concerned with the violation of privacy by the NSA Anderson you should be holding them accountable. Our constitution holds privacy important and no one should take that away. To be concerned with China or Russia is ridiculous. Mr. Snowden is not the criminal, the crime was committed by NSA our government. We cannot except the statement by the President we can't have 100% privacy and be safe from terrorists. We should never give up our privacy. Yes we can have safety from terrorists, but we must not give up our privacy this is why we have the rule of law. Even President Putin from Russia said this, its strange hearing this from a country that was once a dictatorship under Stalin, but he is right this is why we have the rule of law. It is not right for us to give up our privacy. It didn't stop the bombing in Boston and we cannot stop terrorist acts by giving up rights.

    I still think Edward Snowden is a whistleblower and not a traitor. No way is he a spy. I want him to escape and live.
