    They have the documents on Manning's releases found in the bin Laden compound.

    The instant Snowden released the secret documents, Al Queda ended up with them. Putting ANY classified document on the internet immediately aids the enemy. There is no doubt about it.

      By the time Snowden released anything, OBL was long dead.  And what exact tactical advantage did Al Qaeda realize from the knowledge that we spy on our European "allies"?

        Putting a classified document on the internet immediately gives aid to the enemy. End of discussion.

          Al Qaeda could actually, you know, use?  If not, it provides neither aid nor comfort.

            communications to uncover what Al Queda is doing?

            Yep, sounds pretty damned useful for Al Queda to have this information.

            Aid and comfort to the enemy, and he admitted to it on tape.

            But the feds will have mercy like they did with Manning and won't seek the DP.

              you have to demonstrate intent.  Go for it.

                  You seem to have already lost this battle over at Ms. Radack's diary.

                    The only thing I've lost is respect for a lot of so-called liberals whose judgement I had at least some faith in.

                    Now I question anything they have to say about anything. Hell, a week ago I would have been more than willing to entertain seeking ways to alter how the NSA seeks their warrants  and putting a lid on the surveillance etc.

                    Now, fuck that. I cannot trust anything those who would support Manning or Snowden would have to say on the subject.

                    You are losing more by supporting traitors than you know.

                      If that's all it took to turn you anti-Fourth Amendment, then no great loss.

                        See, it's hyperbolic black/white rhetorical bullshit like that which proves to me there's a hell of a lot more to it than you make out and that your judgement on it cannot be trusted.
