You do realize he is being charged for espionage not because of this interview but because he is selling incredibly sensitive information about our agents in other countries to the Chinese and Russians right?
I mean you would have to be a fucking idiot to not know what the NSA has been doing the past decade. They get ALL of your correspondance, phone calls, texts, emails. THis is nothing new. They aren't scrutinizing your information or fucking saving it or using it against you. They aren't using it for much else than finding domestic terrorist threats and international threats. You're gonna be thanking your lucky stars in 20 years when they come out with piles and piles of documents of potential terror acts that were thwarted due to what the NSA does.
Again this snowdon guy is a fucking ass hat. He is selling secrets ABOUT WHERE OUR AGENTS ARE AND WHAT THEY ARE DOING. Will the Chinese and Russians use it against us? Not necessarily but another country might, and that other country might have something that China or Russia wants. If they have something China or Russia wants (natural resources, oil, etc) a pretty nice trade off will be the location, operations, and goals of government agents overseas that could harm the countries with the resources that China and Russia want.
You're an uneducated boner. Do your research form your own opinion and if that is your own opinion then get the fuck out of the country and go somewhere else if you think America is so bad.
