This prick didn't tell us anything we wouldn't have known if people actually paid attention to real politics instead of always listening to sensationalist garbage from 24 hour 'news' networks. What was going on at the NSA was approved by congress, and 100% legal. Nothing was hidden from anyone, it's all there in black and white.

So no, this ****** isn't a hero, he's a traitor. Who the **** is he to decide what's best for the entire country? Classified information is classified in the interest of national security, and by divulging any of it, he has hurt this country. I only hope he is assassinated before he can do any more damage.

"This prick didn't tell us anything we wouldn't have known"

"Classified information is classified in the interest of national security, and by divulging any of it, he has hurt this country"

So where's the problem if the only thing he did was telling us something we already knew?

The fine details that didn't matter to us were the parts that were classified. Nobody seemed to notice what he said from that perspective. Well, nobody but China and Russia.

You're right. And I like you because of that.

So you KNOW for a fact that our government is only doing 'good things' for us?

No, you don't. Not 'for a fact'

Therefore, the fundamental basis of your argument "Classified information is classified in the interest of national security" is unfounded.

Also, please indicate how he had "hurt this country [by divulging information]".
> You can't, because the FBI/CIA haven't even indicated one genuine terrorist plot that had been thwarted with Dragnet Surveillance.
> He merely divulged THE FACT THAT the gov't is spying on all U.S. citizens in a report to The Guardian, an UK newspaper. He didn't disclose spying data itself.

Grow up. This Snowden thing has been hyped up by the media, but regardless, you're a fool if you think that Gov't Surveillance is ever a good thing.

The issue to me isn't about the spying. It's about one man who thought he knew better than the entire group of NSA workers whose only job is to keep the American people safe. As a government contractor myself, I put so much mental energy into making sure I follow all the rules with regards to sensitive information. It makes my blood boil to hear that someone entrusted with the same responsibility as me single-handedly threw away the work of numerous good Americans dedicated to protecting that sensitive information.

The government classifies certain things because it would put the U.S. at a disadvantage if another country got a hold of said information or intelligence.

The real reason for the official secrecy, in most instances, is not to keep the opposition from knowing whats going on; the enemy usually does knows. The basic reason for governmental secrecy is to keep you, the American public, from knowing - for you too are considered the opossition, the enemy.

I'm not a troll. I work as a government contractor and I consider the protection of sensitive information to be both an honor and a great responsibility to my fellow American. That's why seeing this POS decide on his own that giving away classified information was a good idea makes me so angry.
