  • I don't think it does. I don't see how people can call him a traitor either. Americans had a right to know their phone calls are being listened to and recorded. I hope they never find him to be honest. I am not upset he did what he did nor am I surprised. Nothing surprises me anymore with our government.

  • The logical train of thought is:

    anti-terrorism method made public -> terrorists find alternate methods of communicating -> terrorists launch attack co-ordinated over other method -> people die

    How that differs from anti-terrorism method kept secret -> terrorists launch attack co-ordinated over monitored communication without setting off any warnings -> people die
    I don't know

  • Just another blustering politician trying to use lame scare tactics to take the focus off the government snooping.

  • Risk to American life's sounds like generic red flag. Makes no sense.
