We just need to be reminded. Regularly. General Michael Hayden (ret) represents fascism and the destruction of the United States of America, from the immoral inner rot produced by insecurity and cowardice. It's a rot of the mind and spirit and it's un-American.
Ed Snowden, on the other hand, represents courage and true American values that can cleanse and resurrect our nation.
Snowden should be brought home to a hero's welcome. Like yesterday.
ETA: For the same tired fascists who like to fling the term "treason" at Ed Snowden (while demonstrating they don't take their oaths seriously because they are unaware what the word means), take a gander at our Constitution and educate yourself. We do have traitors among us, that is for certain. Eddie Snowden ain't one of them.
These fascists will, as they so often do, tell us to trust them because they know "secrets." Which is strange. Our government leaks secrets on a regular basis when it thinks it benefits them. And leveraging a blow against Snowden would certainly be in their interests after he pulled their pants down and publicly spanked them. So why hasn't the government leaked these secrets to the press along with the daily batch of other secrets?
I'm not so sure the "we have secrets you just don't that prove that we are right" excuse is gonna fly this time. Nice try though, fellas.
