Oops. I guess I ADD'd it from Snowden to fiscal policy without skipping a beat.
Obama was saying the other day that Snowden has been charged with three felonies and is not a patriot.

The media loves calling Snowden a spy, without being any more specific than that. Omigosh, it's cold war spy v. spy--deja vue all over again. Bad spy, bad spy.

As far as we know though, the only spying that Snowden has ever done did was on behalf of the U.S. government, via private contractor, Booz. And, because he did not think that the USG should spy on millions of USians without their knowledge, he disclosed that. And, because he has taken a lesson from the treatment of recent whistleblowers in the US (Drake, Kiriakou, Manning), he left the country. Therefore, the USG has charged him with 3 felonies.


Coincidentally, I just read this elsewhere:


This is the press, an irresponsible press. It will make the criminal look like hes the victim and make the victim look like hes the criminal. If you arent careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.
