Three points to bring up in debates with people who are either on the fence or in bed with the NSA on the leak case:
1. Snowden has not been accused of LIBEL or SLANDER, but of ESPIONAGE. This means that the NSA and US feds agree that everything he has said is true. So read up, and learn something.
2. The current side of the Dem/Rep coin administration is telling us we should be thanking them for keeping us SAFE with the surveillance state. Ask those who say, “Safety is more important than liberty!” why, after fighting for their independence against the most powerful military on Earth, the framers of the Constitution wrote the 4th Amendment, declaring the right against search and seizure without due process, including probable cause.
3. Ask those who say, “If you don’t have anything to HIDE, then you shouldn’t have anything to FEAR from the surveillance state.” whether they are perfectly okay with the police pounding on their door at 3A.M., barging into their house without a warrant, and starting a search simply because “they had nothing better to do” and want to check your closets and drawers, your PC hard drive, and the contents of your personal journal on your nightstand to see if they can find evidence of criminal activity. Even if you have NOTHING TO HIDE, do you seriously have no problem with such an intrusion? Would you offer the thugs coffee and cake without asking to know by what right and for what reason they have invaded your privacy?

Glenn, you hypocrite, then release all of the information you hold, instead of selective tidbits. You are behaving exactly as the mass media you consistently rail against. We, the people, have the right to know about everything the Stasi State of Amerika is up to.
