Espionage porn

Or take Snowden’s revelation that the NSA had been using data from Internet hubs in south and west Germany to monitor Internet traffic to Syria and Mali — two hotbeds of al-Qaeda activity — a revelation that tipped off our enemies to these vital U.S. intelligence operations. …

None of these activities are illegal. As President Obama pointed out in his speech Friday, “The legal safeguards that restrict surveillance against U.S. persons without a warrant do not apply to foreign persons overseas.” None of these activities are targeted at Americans. All are vital to U.S. security. Yet thanks to Snowden, and the newspapers that published his illegal revelations, everyone now knows about them — including the terrorists who want to strike at our country again.

Snowden has become the Larry Flynt of the intelligence world – a shameless espionage pornographer. Except for one big difference: Most respectable publications would never publish pornography.
