Sorry; Ranmojo, I guess you are the "traitor"; you keep forgetting the government is here instituted by and for the people. What he did is correct.
The government itself is at fault by creating more and more terrorists by their own actions. More and more countries around the world dislike the American attitude and policies. We would have no terrorists at all if we would "feed" the world instead of fighting them. How many terrorists did we fight in 1920 ? I guess none. The militaristic arrogance started after WWII ; we give some leaders a lot of money and or weapons or helped selective dictators in place etc. So what do you expect as result? Now we have the "fear" factor in place; that keeps America save, for sure. The NSA is pure a result of our own policies around the world; so blame this country itself, not the terrorists
Can the personal attacks Dutch.
"We would have no terrorists at all if we would "feed" the world instead of fighting them"?!? What dream land do you live in? You want us to feed them instead of fighting them? You mean like we did with Al Qaeda in the 80's? We gave them food, weapons, and money. You mean like we did in Iran before their revolution? Look at how that turned out for us... America started getting weak after WWII. Gone are the days where when an enemy demands the surrender of a US General, his answer is "Nuts", and come are the days where if we can't win in a few months we retreat. And if Snowden is such a hero, why does even Obama call him a traitor?
A Japanese Admiral once said that they should attack while the US is weak, but if they do they need to press all the way to DC or they would lose. This Admiral was the one who lead the attack on Pearl Harbor and there is a very famous quote attributed to him when Japan attacked and didn't press. "I fear all we have done is awaken the sleeping Giant"
Just in the 1900's, counting the year 1920, I count at least 8 terrorist attacks in the US. 8 in 20 years... 7 of those were bombings and 1 was an assassination of the President of the United States (President McKinley)
