WEB EXCLUSIVE: Greenwald on NSA Spying And War Criminal Dick Cheney Ironically Accuses Snowden of Being a Traitor

(Old news??? well I missed it while in hospital )

Cenk Uygur on The Young Turks Irony of War criminal and ethically challenged former VP Dick Cheney accusing whistleblower Edward Snowden of being a traitor for going public with data on NSA's massive spying program

Who's The 'Traitor' - Dick Cheney or Edward Snowden?

Published on 17 Jun 2013
"Former vice president Dick Cheney defended the NSA surveillance on Fox News, saying that it could have helped the United States prevent the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. "As everybody who's been associated with the program's said, if we had had this before 9/11, when there were two terrorists in San Diego—two hijackers—had been able to use that program, that capability, against that target, we might well have been able to prevent 9/11," Cheney said, according to NBC."*
Dick Cheney told Fox News that because Edward Snowden leaked classified information, he is a traitor.

But wait, wait, wait, Dick! Does a name like "Scooter Libby" ring any bells? Is it okay for Cheney to leak info for his own benefit but not okay for anyone to expose him? Cenk Uygur breaks it down

‘In the last four months, we've learned a lot about our government.
‘We've learned that the U.S. intelligence community secretly built a system of pervasive surveillance. Today, no telephone in America makes a call without leaving a record with the NSA. Today, no internet transaction enters or leaves America without passing through the NSA's hands. Our representatives in Congress tell us this is not surveillance. They're wrong.’

"Though the outcome of my efforts has been demonstrably positive, my government continues to treat dissent as defection, and seeks to criminalize political speech with felony charges that provide no defense," Edward Snowden says in his letter.
