    •  At TPM: real story of Snowden's GED (2+ / 0-)

      At now -- 2 brief video excerpts from a Fox interview with Snowden's father.  (Why, oh why did he have to go to them?)

      Dad is bothered about the media spreading disinformation about his son.  Real story is that Snowden was badly sick for 4-5 months during his sophomore year (most likely mono) and was falling behind.  Asked if he could try to test into a local community college, dad kinda tried to discourage him, but said OK.  Snowden passed the GED before he would have graduated and took some classes at the college.

      Dad looks like a real sweetheart.  It's obvious he's real used to telling his son 'I love you'.
