    ...and given GGGE's comments regarding Greenwald, it's not a stretch to assume that's the intent -- to drive a wedge between Snowden supporters who feel that Greenwald's  reporting jeopardizes Snowden's reputation as a whistleblower.

    However, I simply read his comments in the vacuum and context of this diary exclusively, without any attempt to conflate previous comments he's made regarding Greenwald.

    If this was his intent, as far as I'm concerned, it failed.  But I'm a little weary addressing all comments made by critics of Snowden / Greenwald in a reactionary way.  My approach, in this instance, made for a less contentious exchange.  Maybe I'm simply mellowing in my old age, but the accusations and counter accusations based on inferrence and implication has simply lost most of its appeal for me.  At least for today.

    all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
