Edward Snowden Ready to Return to the United States

Snowden is innocent of any crime. During all his many private investigations, evidence-gathering, and publicizing of gov't tyranny, he emphatically lacked criminal intent. Indeed, he was desperately trying to obey "the law of the land" i.e. the US Constitution. He was desperately trying to get others to do so as well, including the heads of the White House, NSA, CIA, FBI, etc. But all his good efforts failed. He was unendingly told by every supervisor in gov't to "Mind your own business," and "Shut up, and do as you're told." So he had to become a whistle-blower and dissident in order to expose all that unprecedented and stunning spying and Big Brotherism. What else was he supposed to do? In he receives anything like a fair trial he will be found innocent. As for the the heads of the White House, NSA, CIA, FBI, etc. -- they're guilty as hell! They're criminals and tyrants almost to infinity. They're the opposite side of the same evil coin as ISIS.

The USA government is crookeder than a dog's hind leg and lower than a snake's belly. If Snowden returns to the USA, he will not get a fair trial. They will promise a fair trial and pretend to give him a fair trial but it will not be a fair trial. Paraphrasing Worf, they are without honor.

I marvel anew at the stupidity and depravity of the religious and traitorous pseudo-Objectivists: http://peterschwartz.com/snowden-and-the-nsa/

I read that and coupled to his newer "Altruism and patriotism" ( http://peterschwartz.com/altruism-and-patriotism/) I have to admit to being stymied by his statements. It wouldnt be the first time. ) If he means to say its proper to hate the US and any attempt to save it by speaking or acting in opposition to its contemporary culture then it would be a slam dunk to see how he aligns that view with Snowden being worse than the NSA. But why he would write a book on the defense of selfishness leaves me clueless since he is it seems to me expressing a love for the virtues that brought this country into being. Loving the thing you hate.... It hurts, thinking about it.

As much as Schwartz seems to rail against the "unlawfull" aspect of Snowdens behavior, I accept that he had a case to prove, with all its sordid tentacles, not sure he could have proved it at all without the mass dump.

Being that he compromised legal foreign security interests he hasnt a chance in hell of a positive outcome for his actions in loyalty towards this country. Like it or not hes an outlaw, the good kind, imo.

20:13 addresses Snowdens actions.

http://www.peikoff.com/2013/08/23/is-it-moral-for-a-person-to-expose-secret-government-programs-which-violate-citizens-individual-rights-even-if-this-may-harm-strategies-which-the-government-states-are-essential-to-national/

To deal with fallout the govt could make a deal that could quantify and clarify the classified information leaked by Snowden. Things that could be proved. Then the govt would know the extent of the consequences and limit damage if any of the potential harm to military national security. I imagine that its fairly benign. Legal maneuvers are made all the time striking deals with murderers. Snowden isnt that.

Pretty sure they are going to crucify him.

He might work a deal where he will cooperate and provide info on the Soviet systems,

Apparently, he is pretty smart.
