US Voters Say Snowden Is Whistleblower

Here's the sad fact about the NSA and its nefarious activities--there is no effective Congressional oversight and secret "rubber-stamp" courts are nothing more than "judicial theater" (ever hear of security theater?). The only effective oversight and check on NSA activities (and other illegal government acts)  are actions of conscience by people like Edward Snowden--

National (US) Poll - July 10, 2013 - U.S. Voters Say Snowden Is Whi | Quinnipiac University Connecticut: "American voters say 55 - 34 percent that Edward Snowden is a whistle-blower, rather than a traitor, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. In a massive shift in attitudes, voters say 45 - 40 percent the government's anti-terrorism efforts go too far restricting civil liberties, a reversal from a January 14, 2010, survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University when voters said 63 - 25 percent that such activities didn't go far enough to adequately protect the country. Almost every party, gender, income, education, age and income group regards Snowden as a whistle-blower rather than a traitor. . . . "
