I'm watching the news, and they are talking (again) about Snowden. Obama is not making a fuss about getting him back to the country. McCain is saying that Putin is sticking his finger in our eye by not shipping him back. They are saying that we should cut off any resources to Russia because if this. If Ecuador helps Snowden, then we need to cut off everything to them (which can seriously cripple their country). Should we? McCain is saying that countries helping Snowden is like a slap in the US' face and we shouldn't help countries while they do that. They should pay a price for essentially not showing they are loyal to our government.
I don't understand why it's a huge issue. I haven't decided if I feel Snowden is a traitor to the US or doing what he should by exposing something like this to the American people. It's not like he gave war secrets to enemies, but at the same time, by exposing a way we caught terrorists he probably just made it harder to thwart terrorist plots before they came into action.
