We're Guessing His Views "Evolved"....

We're talking about Ed Snowdon, he of the much-pawed man totem. Like unto The Lightworker's stance on gay bearage, his deeply held convictions were once otherwise. But that was, in the immortal words of Jay Carney, such a long time ago:

< TheTrueHOOHA> HOLY SH*T http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/11/washington/11iran.html?_r=1&hp

< TheTrueHOOHA> WTF NYTIMES

< TheTrueHOOHA> Are they TRYING to start a war?
Jesus Christ they're like wikileaks

< User19> they're just reporting, dude.
< TheTrueHOOHA> They're reporting classified sh*t

< User19> shrugs

< TheTrueHOOHA> about an unpopular country surrounded by enemies already engaged in a war and about our interactions with said country regarding planning sovereignity violations of another country
you don't put that sh*t in the NEWSPAPER

< User19> meh

< TheTrueHOOHA> moreover, who the f**k are the anonymous sources telling them this?

< TheTrueHOOHA> those people should be shot in the balls.

...< User19> is it unethical to report on the government's intrigue?

< TheTrueHOOHA> VIOLATING NATIONAL SECURITY? no

< User19> meh.

< User19> national security.

< TheTrueHOOHA> Um, YEEEEEEEEEEEES.

< TheTrueHOOHA> that sh*t is classified for a reason

< TheTrueHOOHA> it's not because "oh we hope our citizens don't find out"

< TheTrueHOOHA> it's because "this sh*t won't work if iran knows what we're doing."

Ah, but Ed was so much older then. He's younger than that now.

Hi Cassandra,
BTW, the formatting of this exchange was terrible on my browser.
While tough to discern the post's point, I'll volunteer that Snowden is a low life creep that broke his word and sworn duty by choosing to release information that he knew was officially Secret.

and yeah, if he had only released a couple details or some broad outline concerning his objections, and then been willing to accept personal responsibility for his actions . . . then I'd consider him an honest 'whistleblower.'

Best Regards,

There's a question nobody seems to be asking: How did Snowden get from a NSA desk to the Moscow Airport waiting room (by way of Hong Kong)? He didn't go all that way on his own - there's a lot of money involved, a lot of red tape to be cut. Even a really smart 28-year-old couldn't do that without a lot of outside help - and probably a lot of that from government-level people.
