    ... of that exact file and no more to the New York Times. Geez, don't play dumb.  

    I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.

      ... everyone in the FBI is "in on it." You do realize that that would constitute the greatest, vastest conspiracy of all time? That kind of thinking is what makes the Tea Party look silly when they go after the IRS (and everyone in the IRS) or go after anything to do with President Obama (and everyone around him).  Cheers!

      on Snowden without knowing all the facts... a "Tortmaster" should know that at this point, the public isn't privy to most of the information, so it's impossible to speculate whether he committed a crime, much less espionage, 2) Drake and the other two whistleblowers Jessalyn Radack represented also tried to go through the proper channels and look where it got them--prison, in Drake's case. Going to a law enforcement entity that particpates in warrantless wiretapping would be the height of stupidity in Snowden's case.
