In fairness Congress is out of the loop. Corporations only tell a few that have to know what they want and pay them to get it done.

A Congressman has as much knowledge/authority as a school crossing guard.

Well done that man, we need more of this and people like Snowden to try and wake people up a bit, change needs to happen or the pattern just goes on and on forever.

The reason congressmen don't know what to do about the NSA is that the NSA has also been spying on congressmen. The NSA no doubt has a fair amount of pretty incriminating dirt on them, and congress KNOWS that. They haven`t been able to figure out how to reign in the NSA while also keeping their own dirt laundry private.

@ Crakr - Snowden gave secret documents to China showing how the US has hacked their computers. China hacks ours, we hack theirs. It is not for that traitor to give up international espionage secrets to foreign countries.

Snowden "gave up" nothing voluntarily. He found out they were on to him so he ran like the coward he is. If he's a Whistle blower, he should stand like a man and face it. Throw the charges in the evil-doers face! No, he is a coward and a traitor.

Snowden has announced he will leak more information to other countries. What all is on those 3 computers he loaded and took with him?

Yes, our guv`ment was doing wrong. That does not give Snowden open license to reveal every secret he got his cowardly hands on.

Gerry: There is no evidence that Snowden has sold any information, he's given up a lot more, informing us of the NSA`s spying, than he could gain.

He`s lost a GF, a house, a six figure a year career. The US government has put a bounty on his head and is trying to spin the media into calling him a traitor. How the hell is he benefiting from that?

The problem for the government is, the media loves to reveal secrets more than they love schilling for this administration. Plus, nobody, even the liberal media, likes being spied upon.

He ran, because the government would`ve made him disappear, lie and sweep it all under the rug. The CIA is expert in making murders look like suicides, they`ve done it many times before.
