So, I guess that makes Kim Young'un a hero?

Snowden has to be asking himself if this trip was worth it.

skinink: Snowden has to be asking himself if this trip was worth it.


Of course it was! He's got the support of millions of internet nerds, brutal dictatorships, and people that think the government is recording everything they say by the microphone their dentist/government spy put in their filling.

How about if America woke up and realized that it stood for freedom and the rights of Man?

Snowden is a hero, and America hates real heroes.

It would be more heroic if after the stuff went public he didn't run away.

I agree that we need people like him to expose when our government is systematically lying to us and abusing its power, but you can't run away, you have to face the consequences of telling the truth.

At some point that entire country is going to collapse into a real and physical black hole of hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance.

There is no dignity in getting run over by a steamroller.

Should he be a hero for exposing us to what everyone should already know?  He's ignorant, a coward and a lawbreaker.  He might have started a conversation but we should have had that conversation in 2002, when the Patriot Act was signed.  Come back and face the music, dumbass.

But Best Korea is always right, eh?

Here's your real world lesson for today:

1) Only American Citizens have those rights and freedoms under the US Constitution
2) Foreigners do not have the same rights as American Citizens.
3) When an American goes to the another country, they are subject to those laws and freedoms
4) Puck was framed.

Noone like to hear an ugly truth about themselves. Snowden told the truth, consequences be damned. Damn right he's gonna suffer for it.

Like spending a year in solitary confinement awaiting trial, while the government makes a determined effort to psychologically break you?

snowden leaks secrets, people rejoice and call him a hero. followed by changes, followed by terrorist attack, followed by people asking the government why they didn't stop it.

see the hypocrisy? people get mad because of the government being in everyones business but they also get mad when the government fails to protect them. kinda can't have it both ways.

Apples and Oranges.  Manning is in the military justice system which is completely different than civilian system.

Your familiarity with the U.S. Constitution is impressive.

Nice non sequitur.  I made no claims to the constitutionality of Mannings treatment.  I simply said the military justice system and the civilian justice system are different.  Because they are.

Conspiracy theory proven true -- still gets slandered as a conspiracy theory. This is what drives rational people mad.

Sure there is. Plenty of Civil Rights Protesters knew they would be beaten, jailed or possibly even killed for doing the right thing.

At the risk of my sounding hopelessly naive, how hard is it for the government to follow the law?

Snowden is a Paultard idiot and deserves everything he gets from now on. He LOVED all this spy shiat right up until 2008, then his LOLibertarian senses kicked in.

Guy's a Libertard shiatbag, basically. He "leaked" what everybody knew already. Now if Putin gets his hands on his usb drive, the Put will have access to shiat that impacts US National Security. And trust me, Russia would love that.

Good job, moron. You ran from one "totalitarian hell" right into the lap of such free loving places as Putin's Russia, Venezuela and North Korea.

Christ, what an asshole.
