    Tea Partiers and Daisy Flower People will see him as a hero. However, those with real intellect will see him as a traitor, especially considering the harm he may have placed our troops in. Tea Partiers = Anti-American.”

    Correct me, but , the troops are choosing to be in harms way. Also, how does bringing this subject of privacy harm them directly ? oh wait, it doesn’t. Like every other government or institution out there.

    YOU ARE BEING WATCHED ALL THE TIME! PRIVACY HAS NEVER EXISTED.

    If you’re an American citizen and not engaged in criminal or illegal activity, then who cares what the government knows about you.

    SO, he’s a traitor for revealing the U.S. government’s total disregard for the Constitution? A traitor? For jeopardizing his life and his family’s well being? To live a life filled with the fear of being “disappeared” just to warn Americans they’re losing their freedom”? “Am I then your enemy because I tell you the truth”? Anyone who says this guy’s a traitor, is NOT AN AMERICAN! But a traitor themselves!

    Johnny how did he place troops in danger? he reported illegal activity of the govt without releasing anything that would hurt national security. he gave his life up to do so.

    George Orwell is laughing in his coffin.

    He told us so,quite a while ago.

    The Jews, from the late 1930′s to the time they were taken to the camps had that same attitude of: “I’m ok, I’ve done nothing wrong, the Government must need to protect the homeland this way”!

    And if you read some of the diaries and biographies of Jews in the camps, some still believed that up until their death.

    There was a reason for the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
    They were a very well thought out rule book for the limitation of Government, and every right we allow to be taken away, brings us all closer to what the German Jews lived through and died through in the 1930s and 1940′s
