    They had their day in court, not in a ditch somewhere. The reality is that each of them broke the law in some form in their search for morality in government. We are a nation of laws by the way. They highlighted some interesting goings on that we might not have been aware of. That doesn't exonerate them from going to court and being tried.

    You make it sound like they were all heroes that deflected bullets with their bare hands? By the way, Bradley Manning is a story about his treatment in custody. It's not about him being held or tried for his actions to date. He should be held, but not abused as is being disclosed in the news.

    Being on the loose Mr. Snowden is more likely to find himself killed by some group, not necessarily the CIA, whereas if he was in custody at least he wouldn't end up in a ditch. Make your message heard and stand up for what you believe. Running just ruins his credibility. And I want him to survive to speak out about what he knows. But as it is we are getting things second or third hand and sometimes "wordsmithed" by people handling him. This isn't good for him or for the rest of us.
