  •  serious question for you (0+ / 0-)

    do you believe that if Snowden had followed a certain process that the government would reconsider its actions? I'm curious how you see it playing out if he'd done that.

    •  They might. Believe it or not, internal dissent (5+ / 0-)

      can produce results.  Ask anyone who has worked with an institution with an Inspector General vs. one without one, and they'll tell you there are major differences.  But Snowden didn't even try.  He didn't give anyone other than himself a chance.

      Now, though, more likely he simply solidified their position without really driving any external effort that might accomplish the same goal.  Time will tell if he achieved anything or just created a name for himself at the expense of everyone working the inside.

      Assumptions begin with ass and end with shit.
