    A man of Snowden's character should be offered the head position at the NSA right here in the USA. His morals and ethics can't be bought off, unlike at least 90% of the Republicans. President Obama should offer a full pardon to him as well, heck if it wasn't for Snowden then our President would still be in the dark as to the Crimes perpetrated by the NSA. Stop the Spying on Patriotic Americans and spy on terrorists like the Boston Bombers, if the NSA would have just listened to the Russians warning the USA about the Boston Bombers, then it could have been thwarted and we could have continued to watch the Broken Oil Pipeline that was dominating the news those days before the Boston Bombing. I'm still waiting for that Oil Spill Clean Up coverage news, but nary a word is spoken about it on the Nation News since the Boston Bombing. One could get the idea that the Oil Companies will use terror to avoid bad press. Wasn't there also a fertilizer plant that blew up in West Texas as well. It may have been plan B, if plan A, failed. Possibilities, that is what we have. Could this kinda stuff actually be happening, it's a lot more probable than the old birth er argument.

    Boeing just lost a Brazilian jet fighter contract to Saab because of Snowden's treason.

    His war against all America continues, we aren't we shooting back?
