Edward Snowden Is Crazy, They Say

Or he's a traitor. A narcissist, maybe. He might be unbalanced, a political extremist, a misanthrope. And now he's about to help the Chinese government.

No matter what the truth, it's obvious we shouldn't believe what he says. Maybe we're even at war with guys like him.

Here's my problem with this line of argument: Only a few weeks ago Edward Snowden was a trusted intelligence professional with years of experience. And the people in the government and media who are maligning him now? Back then - back in that ancient, innocent world of mid-May, 2013 - these people wanted me to let Snowden have access to my private data so he could help fight al-Qaeda.

Have I got all this right? Okay, two questions...

1. Good article. Yes, the McCarthyists are dragging him through the mud...

Including a few authoritarian skunks at DU.

They really stink up the place.

How dare he violate the Code of Omerta to expose wholesale violation of our Fourth Amendment rights?
