Edward Snowden is on the run for his life. He was being asked to perform a job he considered illegal, immoral, and un-American. Supposedly, he lost faith in the leader for whom young people, Leftist Ideologues, and Useful Idiots have placed so much faith. Yet, he knew our Nobel Peace Prize winning president was spying on innocent Americans and people all over the world. Was the spying justified for Americas security or a political ploy for Democrats and possibly Obama to maintain power and control indefinitely?
If the spying was strictly for security and to keep America safe, why did our security forces concentrate on Christians, returning soldiers, anti-abortion groups, conservatives, TEA Party groups and ignore the Muslim Extremists responsible for the Boston Marathon Bombing, especially after two courtesy warnings by the Russians on the terrorist tendencies of the Tsarnaev brothers.
Is it possible, NSA agents are listening in on the conversations of congressmen and judges to catch them in compromising situations and use confidential information to influence votes and decisions.
Oh no, Skook, our intelligence agents would never use their positions to act in political partisan ways. The old days of naiveté are over for everyone but the most simple-minded, our federal bureaus are now overrun with political hacks and operatives who have put Leftist ideology ahead of the security of our country. The Boston Marathon bombings are a case in point and now the fact that we are arming the same enemy in Syria that we are fighting in Afghanistan only trumps the lunacy.
Our clueless Attorney General, using the same strategy for excusing the Benghazi Massacre, tried to blame the Boston attack on tax resistors immediately after the attack, and caused Americans to wonder if Obamas intense domestic spying program is concentrated more on political objectives rather than security threats.
Did Snowden see the hypocrisy in his former hero? The same man who promised as a candidate to end domestic spying and after being elected, increased surveillance of the American people exponentially, a move that could be used against political opponents indefinitely, especially if the NSA, like the IRS and the EPA is riddled with Leftist operatives.

Still waiting for the political class to answer this question.
I would love to hear Carney’s response to that question.
As far as I know, Snowden has only revealed information that has been openly acknowledged since 2006.
Why are they so PO’d at him?
Because he reminded everyone of what they already knew.
Much worse the that my friend. Imagine the espionage power that this data base and wire tapping asset can give to foreign spies if they can gain access to it ? The entire government of the US could be compromised. And at this point in time, we have to assume they have been.
