    And people keep understating the damage that these leaks are going to cause to our National Security. I am sorry to put this out there so bleakly in this forum. But the United Nations isn't what I would call a Domestic entity. And it's basically what the NSA and CIA do. They listen in to everything and anything dealing with other countries. This is a surprise that they were doing this, but it's not so unexpected. Every country with this capability attempts this. We are not above such things. Surprise!

    What annoys me is that Snowden's releases are doing so much damage. Releasing information about the domestic snooping going on was what he was supposed to be illuminating as an illegal activity. That was the whistleblowing matter. This rest of this stuff is just causing unnecessary damage to our spying capabilities. Why is he releasing this information? All it is going to do is cause them to want to hunt him down even more!
