    The likely suspects, would be US operatives. Greenwald is very fortunate. He might have had an "accident" like the one that killed investigative reporter Michael Hastings.

    So now this intelligence is being used to protect him. Not to protect our freedoms. Color me skeptical but that sounds like a bit of hypocrisy. When the government performs these operations they claim it's in the interest of national security to protect us from threats to our citizens. Edward Snowden says, no they're taking away your freedoms they should be exposed. However, he uses these same programs in a way in which he feels is protecting only one person, himself. He is withholding the truth because it serves a greater good to him, covering his own sorry ass. When he releases this information it doesn't matter who it harms (possibly all of us) by setting back our intelligence gathering operations abroad and possibly outing our assets in the process. Just as long as his ass is safe and he can continue to remain relevant by leaking one story at a time every few weeks to maintain his famewhore ego for as long as possible.
    Your real american hero. It makes my stomach turn.

    or to put it another way, I'm not voting because I don't care who stole this computer. if snowden was concerned as he claims how these programs are harming us he would release all the information. He's not. He's selling it one story at a time to stay in the headlines and cash for as long as possible. Snowden cares about Snowden and that's the only person he's ever gave a shit about.

    Of course it makes your stomach turn. But only if it's a Dem President under fire here huh? You'd be leading the charge if this happened under Bush and you know it.

    @frigginhell Please. It's practically right out of the script of Enemy of the State. If you have some vital information that is essentially keeping you alive, you hold onto it. A dead man can tell no tales.

    @jessejaymes Sorry, wrong answer. I would not. I did not laud any of the leakers that occurred under bush's watch. I do not like some of the things in the patriot act. I was to their passage. I do not, however, condone leaking classified information in such a haphazard fashion. Although I'm certain there are times when it becomes necessary to do the right thing and bring attention to certain of our governments activities. I'm not a fan of the stuff I've seen occurring lately. Perhaps it's the six years of bias I developed on such matters when I first got out of high school.

    Certainly possible no computer was stolen at all. It's also certainly possible that Snowden accidentally stumbled on something so big that he and those helping him are actually afraid to release it because they know the second they do the lot of them are dead. That information may well be all that is keeping Snowden and numerous others alive today.

    @jessejaymes - Snowden is a walking dead man, he knows he dead, he just wants to make sure the information will be available to the public and disclosed to the American citizens after he meets his 'accident'. If it is something huge he's trying to buy time so he can crack the encrypted code.

    @jessejaymes - if you want to talk about a real life movie...this would be it. All we need is cameras following the CIA, the president, Snowdon and the Wikileaks team and you got the next Bourne movie.

    We know our leader Obama is a liar. That has been documented many times. But is he a thief as well? Oh well, time will tell.

    Besides, I thought they were working toward impeaching him. What if I may ask are they waiting for?

    Those who are pushing Big Govt on us have the most to lose. They fear the more we know about the unvarnished Evil the less chance we will willingly surrender our freedoms to Big Brother.

    lying stealing swindle must be a quality when becoming a politician.

    Just which part of Obama's administration was assigned this task. My guess is the job went to Eric Holder, the guy known to be able to square a circle. He probably detailed it to the FBI, those detailed to bring Federal criminals to justice. All we have to do is have Holder sworn in at a Congressional Committee because we know he never ever lies.

    I have long said if Snowden has any sense at all, and wants to stop the government from killing him. He needs to store the information on several different systems around the world with logic bombs. That way is anything happens to him, the second he fails to check in with the system, it uploads everything he had to every news agency in the world.

    Obama wants to execute him where ever possible. This tactic would prevent the US from killing him. Else everything is public.

    That way rather than being afraid, Snowden would probably have his own Secret Service attachment to keep him alive and safe.

    Yes, killed like we kill all those other leakers. Like Manning or Assange or Russ Tice or Dick Cheney or William Sanjour or Samuel Provence or Rick Piltz or Karen Kwiatowski or etc. etc. etc.
    All of these people blew the whistle on the US government or military over the last ten years. including Cheney. Only one of them is even behind bars and none of them are dead. So I can see your point. I can also laugh at it.
    If he was concerned about what these programs are doing to our country he would release this information in whole not piecemeal one paycheck at a time.
