So Feinstein is now "totally opposed" to the NSA spying on American allies and is so shocked at the revelations.

Never mind that she was just fine with the NSA spying on the average American citizen even up to just a few days ago.

I shall not look a gift horse in the mouth; and instead be grateful for this sudden about face, even if it is just in defense of her fellow ruling elites.

What I want to know, now that she is so enlightened to the dangerous nature of the NSA, is she going to apologize?

After all, she has so shrilly and vociferously called Edward Snowden out as a traitor.

For that matter, will Obama also apologize for his comments on Edward Snowden? Granted, they are not quite as repugnant as Feinstein's, but publicly withering nonetheless.

Now that it has been asserted he too has been "kept in the dark" all along by this rogue agency, doesn't that mean that Snowden might have been acting as a patriot? Shouldn't Feinstein and Obama, as fellow concerned citizens, be grateful to the man that exposed these undemocratic, totalitarian-state-like actions?

After all, what's a little public embarrassment when weighed against the fact that a secretive agency in your country has been running a massive worldwide surveillance program unbeknownst to anyone save themselves at the NSA?

Just asking.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
