    If the SC were to ultimately rule that NSA's bulk data collection is unauthorized and unconstitutional, how could Snowden be guilty of a felony for disclosing such blatant disregard by the NSA (and the Executive by implication) of the law?  How could the government possibly prosecute him in that case?

    The feel I get is that the NSA suggests amnesty because they they'd like for the disclosures to stop - they can imagine what he probably knows.  The Executive, on the other hand, hasn't a clue.

      i'm sure that they'd find a way. B(

      i think that they have to assume that he knows their deepest, secret fear and can make all of their nightmares come true.  i think that they suggest it because they know that they have to be nice to him.

      Diplomacy is the art of saying 'Nice doggie' until you can find a rock.
