    The "Situation Room" coverage of this series of events and related commentary by anchors is very good and worthy of greater viewership. People like me know, i.e., the overall interest in such things here in the U.S. is more along the lines of what appeared on the cover of the "New York Post" this morning; and there are any number of deep – seated reasons why these things happen to misguided people in the first place, especially with respect to people as important in the public eye as Mr. Snowden is at this point. Good day.

    Ironic, the NSA didn't do a background check on Snowden themselves. All I can say is God sends and angel down to heaven once in a while. A man with morals ethics and convictions, that is willing to put his own life on the line to keep the USA land of the free and home of the brave, a true patriot who put's his ass on the line to make sure the citizens of the USA have a chance to be informed of the corruption and criminal behaviors of those we put our trust in. Snowden is such a man on the other hand we have people like Bush and Cheney who sacrifice people and our rights ,to pay back their political support groups and the hell be dammed with morals,ethics or anything else that gets in the way of their secret agenda. Snowden should be awarded a medal for shedding light on the diabolical spying of USA citizens and businesses. I urge President Obama to dismantle all of these post 911 government agencies that trample on our rights and clean house in the CIA and FBI so we citizens can begin to trust in our government again. If you need help in doing so may I offer my services.
