  •  I think my main criticism, at least of Snowden, (0+ / 0-)

    is that from the beginning he's placed himself in the role of Accuser - or at least allied himself with a voice accustomed to playing that role, Glenn Greenwald - rather than trying to be a responsible adult blowing the whistle on an out-of-control institution to the American people.  It played right into the logic of power, and now it will be much, much harder for others to blow the whistle.  It doesn't seem like he put much thought into that, whereas one would think the thoughts of a whistleblower should be very much on how to make it easier for other whistleblowers in the future, not to just create maximum publicity for your own self and pet causes.  

    Sign the petition to demand a law-abiding Supreme Court.
