I'm seeing lots of these efforts to discredit Snowden, as in this article:
Quote:
While I am certain that what he has reported is true, Iím unsure of motivation.
I just don't get this at all. What's the difference what his motivation is, or whether he is a noble and good person? If his report is true and it is something we needed to know and had a right to know, he did us a great service. If these commentators succeed in convincing us that Snowden is a complete jerk, does that mean it was okay to spy on us, after all? Of course not -- makes no sense.
