RexTalionis: If he was more concerned about holding Putin accountable, he probably should've added a followup while he was on the air instead of writing his followup on a website which no Russians will be reading.

syrynxx: Putin was KGB for 16 years. What did he expect? That's like if we elected a former head of the CIA.

rjakobi: It's like the guy had an epiphany that all of the secrets he leaked out might have actually HELPED THE RUSSIANS.
WTF Indeed: Step 1: Ask pre-approved softball question to a dictator whom you sold your freedom too.Step 2: Get pre-approved answer.Step 3: Write an article about how you aren't sure your beloved dictator is telling the truth.Step 4: Make sure in the article you remind everyone how evil the US is.Step 5: Completely ignore your new nations invasion of sovereign nations and their forced removal of Crimean Muslims
James!: At least Snowden can now look around and see what actual fascism looks like.
JudgeSmails: I just finished reading the Vanity Fair 20 page piece on him, so I'm getting a kick./worth reading//Snowden is a tool
This text is now purple: rjakobi: It's like the guy had an epiphany that all of the secrets he leaked out might have actually HELPED THE RUSSIANS.How? Surely they knew we were doing all of that shiat anyway. They didn't suddenly forget everything they learned during the Cold War.The big revelation was that the NSA was doing that shiat to Americans, too.
farkeruk: His explanation is one of either being complicit with Putin, or else a stunninly naive tool.Me, I think the guy's a semi-crazy fark up. The documents he published are kinda meaningless and the things he said he could do were very much "yeah, so what?". He's turned his back on a good job, hot girlfriend and nice life for being Putin's biatch.
mainsail: I think the word we're looking for here, is "tool."
Nonrepeating Rotating Binary: What an incredibly foolish man.
drjekel_mrhyde: The dude was a Russian plant all along. Before his leaks the US was biatching to China and Russia about human rights, spying and other cray cray shiat. After his leaks he went to China and Russia know damn well these are the two worst places on Earth when it come to the shiat he was trying to defend.
Hey_shut_up: We are all idiots. We all think that we are important, we aren't.Freedom, power, wealth and everything we value is a false illusion made real by our delusion that we matter.We have gone from laughing at "The Emperor has no clothes" to turning on the child who pointed it out and killing him publicly.we as a species are not capable of greatness. People with say "well look at what we have done" and to that I counter "Yeah, really look at we have done" We are just an out of control ego with aspirations of godhood when all we are is primates playing in the mud.Power is not real, nobody cares, Putin, bush the 1% and who cares who else can't take it with them. They are just important as a petty dictator 3500 years ago. Nobody cares and given enough time it will be as if they never existed because they aren't really doing anything new.
Weatherkiss: Edward Snowden blew the whistle. America turned their head in his direction. A few said he was a traitor, a few said he was a hero. And then America shrugged and went back to business as usual. He changed no tunes. He brought down no establishments. He purged no corruption from our government.This is what happens when someone blows the whistle on something people ultimately do not care about.
