    What`s so important about Snowden? Nothing?

    I don`t get it. Why is there so much controversy about Snowden`s supposed disclosures? I thought everyone already knew that everything they did on the internet, phone and in public places was probably being watched and possibly recorded.

    Is something else going on that the news medias, both mainstream and alternative, are trying to distract from?

    It`s not like Snowden`s revelations are gonna bring down the colored fella. No way, those who installed him will never remove him. He can do whatever he wants, golf all day, vacation, whatever, as long as he does not cross his benefactors. He is an in your face 24/7 reminder to Whites that they are being kicked out of their own country, which I think was the main reason he was installed. The criminal elite get to enjoy rubbing our noses in his arrogance and our elimination from our own country.

    • Apparently he left the country with a laptop full of additional information that may or may not have anything to do with phone calls. He is basically a traitor if he shares any further secrets with a foreign government. If he felt he was right to do what he did, and didn't do it for money, etc. he could have stayed here and been a hero in the media.

      • So far all he's done is blow the whistle on something I knew was being done back in the 60's. They have spied on anyone that disagreed with "Big Bubba" to varying degrees. You're right about treason though. He told the American people about the spying and "Big Bubba" considers us his enemies.

      • "if he shares any further secrets"

        This directly from the State Department Page "Passport Information for Criminal Law Enforcement Officers",

        "Denial or revocation of a passport does not prevent the use of outstanding valid passports. . .

        The physical revocation of a passport is often difficult, and an apparently valid passport can be used for travel until officially taken by an arresting officer or by a court."

        Snowden is being held captive by Russia, by Russia's own initiative or by US request. Of course the US is requesting extradition so I think you can assume whatever is on his laptop is already shared. I'm sure China got what they wanted too. Snowden is not a diplomat and does not have the protection of his government or international law. I have no idea what he was thinking. He is a traitor and a dumb one at that. If you're upset about government surveillance you don't go to China or Russia, for crying out loud.
