    has all this super-valuable intelligence info in the first place. As though this 30 year old IT guy who doesn't even work for the government itself would be walking around with the nuclear launch codes or something.

    •  well, yeah (0+ / 0-)

      I mean he hasn't told us anything that we didn't already know, so this story is no big deal.  But telling China something that they already know is treason.

      Our snoops are not legally authorized to snoop without legal authorization. Of course, if they were legally authorized to snoop without legal authorization, that would constitute legal authorization. Do you feel better yet?

    •  Snowden says: (0+ / 0-)

      #1: I can get into anyone's shit

      #2: I'm in China with my laptops

      It's not hard to put #1 and #2 together and conclude that Snowden is giving intelligence to a foreign government.  Now, you can come up with a kinder description of what he's doing, but if I were in charge of figuring out his situation, I would assume he's sold us out already and that anything he might have been able to access, is compromised.

      So either you have to stop believing Snowden that our system is all that scary, or you have to stop believing that he's in a foreign county with who knows what information.  But, then you have to stop believing him and that opens the door to he's a bullshitter.

      Which, I think, may be the more likely story.
