    I still have not entirely relocated my jaw after reading the number of comments here, on arguably the most respected, progressive blog in this country, that not only said, "So what?", but vilify those who allow us to know the truth, at huge personal risk, as traitors.
    We know that various government agencies have been studying how to use social media to influence populations in other countries.  Software has been developed to make it possible for one person to run multiple on-line identities convincingly, posting as many different people on social forums and blogs.

    In light of what we have learned about government spying against American citizens, what would make us think that of all those posts acusing Snowden, et al of being traitors, none of them could be the work of paid agents?  I can believe in a few hot head idiots sounding off now and then, but for this type of thing to be endemic and showing up every time you turn around, that takes some orchestration.  Who benefits from that?
