    I could care less what motivates Snowden to release these documents, whether it is concern over blatant violations of the 4th amendment or "showboating".

    The fact that they were released is the what is important because we now have documented proof that the allegations made by many before were actually not conspiracy theories.

    By the way, are you comfortable with the next Republican president having access to this data?

      is exactly why these are so important.  Previously, it was a whistle blower's word versus that of the govt.  And none of the previous whistle blowers knew just how extensive it was.  Now we are seeing irrefutable proof and it is making a lot of people very uncomfortable to admit to it so they attack the messengers since they cannot attack the message.
