    Revealing the nature and extent of the program should have been fine and as Americans we had a right to know. But releasing those classified documents that revealed ongoing covert operations putting those operatives in mortal danger should put him and the reporters that printed that information at risk under the espionage act.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    You didn't really cut into the meat of the video though and need to pierce through the rhetoric. there's quite a sharp contrast to what you wrote.

    Snowden is a patriot who performed a great service to the Amercan people by revealing the extent to which each one of us has had our communications recorded by the government. I haven"t seen any evidence that anyone has been harmed.

    Would you let him in your waterbed?

    Not Edward Scissorhands, he'd cut the bed.

    Zing! 2 points for Ed. Wouldn't letting someone in your waterbed lead to drowning?

    Ed was created on top of a mountain by Vincent Price, incomplete, with scissors for hands and no heart. Ed is a complete hero to me.

    Ed has more heart than any of us.
