"Eddie Snowjob (Edward Snowden)": AMEN!

A re post from Friend of the TPI: Andrew Rei.

Every word is point-on, we agree and the sooner people realize Snowden is no hero the better.   

So, he wants to come back to the US. Suggestion, he should spend his time cleaning the lens of those hidden INTEL cameras placed surreptitiously around his dwelling.

I should write a note about this, but, until I do, please remember a few things: 
Eddie Snowjob (Edward Snowden) is NOT, I repeat, NOT a whistleblower. The reason? In 2005 and 2006, BOTH the Washington Post and The New York Times reported on the Bush 43 administration's domestic surveillance program and correctly noted that the administration was using the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 to justify it. That makes Eddie Snowjob a DUMBASS, not a whisteblower and a patriot. 
The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 was written, passed and signed into law by the GOP, the REPUBLICANS, IN 2001! Just 45 days after 9-11! Please get that through your thick skulls. The Democrats had the Senate super-majority required to quash the GOP's Fascist, insurrectionist, seditious and juvenile overuse of the filibuster and other Senate tricks for about four months in late 2009/early 2010. Outside of that four month period, the GOP have done everything they can to keep the Patriot Act going.
The high-profile person who truly IS a whistleblower is Chelsea Manning. She exposed the Bush 43 administration's corruption and cover-up of war crimes committed by the military. But, she was convicted of espionage for her actions. Espionage is what Eddie Snowjob actually committed when he "exposed" the domestic surveillance program. 
Since the GOP wrote, passed and signed into law the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001, seven cases regarding it have come to the Supreme Court. In all but two of those cases, the FFFCCC (Fascist Feckless Five Christian Con Coward) majority upheld it. That's the reason it needs to be repealed. In the two cases where they didn't uphold it, one involved the incarceration of "foreigners" at Gitmo but gave them the right to legal representation and use of the federal courts in adjudicating their cases. The other is the reason that NDAAs (National Defense Authorization Acts) every year don't allow for the "indefinite detention (military or otherwise) of US citizens, legal resident aliens or anyone caught or captured on US soil", as the court created three protected classes in their decision. That case debunks the Firebaggers' (Libertarians') pathetic "indefinite military detention" propaganda/ talking point in opposition to the NDAA every year.
