He choose to run to a communist country China first & foremost (do you really think he could say they can look at some things & not others) then after they had all they wanted he went to Russia (same thing there) & now that they have everything he had they are allowing him to play a game with us. Every country has had spies from the very beginning & he dropped a dime on our whole operation, don't know if spy names were given or not or what is now known that isn't being let out. He could have just quit his job, simple as that. Yep, he's a true American Hero, that's for sure.
There's that. But the problem I have is the spying on Americans. With the ability to spy at home with such detail now they can start to control the other officials. How many people in office don't have any secrets they would rather stay secret? Then they can control Judges and lawmakers. That scares me. That is why I am glad we at least know what is going on. I believe that is why Snowden did what he did as well.
