Speaking as a left-wing liberal I don't generally care for Greenwald, I find him sanctimonous and possessed of a moral relativism that exceeds even my own.

Bt he`s right on this. He`s a reporter and he reported. It embarassed a foreign government, so what? To ask why the US government should not `come after` a UK journalist is like asking why North Korea shouldn`t `come after` its foreign critics.

It embarassed the British government, so what? Don`t do stuff that embarasses you when it comes to light. This is seriously public interest revelations and while Snowden, Manning and Assange may well have broken laws the evident (and futile) determination of the state to stamp out exposure says everything about the state and what it is up to.

TBH, I`m fine with us spying the hell out of the Chinese and Russians and (one would hope) the French. And I always assumed that if I used the internet or a mobie phone then `the Man` had access one way or another.

Anything that gives the government pause to reflect that maybe they can't get away with everything is a good thing.

No, the press USED to be the watchdog on the government.
