uber humper: Snowden has already given out the encrypted files. I think it's moot to bring him in. Of course, they have to save face they can't just walk away.


Do it anyway - and go for the people that release it - to establish a steep price to be paid for associating with Snowden.  If not him initially, then go for anyone providing material support.  Take it out on Russians coming to the United States in the form of exorbitant security fees and crackdowns on organized crime.  Their back can be broken if the US is willing to do so.

Diplomacy isn't working, perhaps a more active approach would work.

cirrhosis_and_halitosis: Hang on, you're calling Russia the terrorists? [derp]


Why yes they are - trying to demonize doesn't change that.  They might not be the USSR, but they definitely act like it, which is close enough to be considered terrorists.

As for Snowden, he might be a hard target, but the people supporting him (his lawyers, uncooperative "journalists", etc.) are easier.  If associating with him means your own demise(and at a net loss), it won't matter who has the information or what they have - people will want to live and not subject their family and friends to unnecessary peril.

It's nice and all until you're responsible for making it a Very Bad Day for family, friends, people providing material assistance, and anyone in this situation who calls themselves "human rights activists".  If they want to save themselves, the best thing would be to cooperate with the US by turning in what they have, who gave it to them, and how they are associated with Snowden.

We need to go easier on whistleblowers.  How else are we to trust the government again? We can't trust what they say and do; we, the citizens, need to be part of the checks and balance system.  The leadership of the US are lairs. The government needs to make a grand offering to the people to show that they can be trusted again. Words wont do it.  Verifiable actions
