30. Who is praising the general who allegedly leaked? I've read the other thread and

 

heard or read no praise for the general's alleged leaking.

I think you are using the allegations of the general's leak to try to impugn the patriotism of those who support Snowden's leaks. Sort of a sneaky 'guilt by association' play, once removed. That is, your argument suggests that those who support Snowden may also support the General's alleged leak, like somehow those who support Snowden are dupes for the military's usurpation of the Constitution.

Snowden: leaks details of massive government spying on Americans and other civilians, in gross violation of the Fourth Amendment.

Hoss: allegedly leaks details of a covert op against Iran.

Not all leaks are created equal and your post insults the intelligence of DUers by presuming they are unable to make the distinction between the two.

And that's not even to mention the alarmism and histrionics that infuse your OP; there's no military coup, no imminent coup. The only coup I've seen in the US was back in 2000 and its instigators were the SCOTUS.
