So I was watching a documentary on RT news about Edward Snowden’s exit from Hong Kong when a Mr. Hayden (FORMER NSA Dir) stated that Mr Snowden broke his oath and that about 100, 000 people in the intelligence community would be upset if a plea bargain or such would be offered to Mr. Snowden then stating further that you don’t want to do that with people who are responsible for the safety of the US….
And I thought wait a minute is that a veiled threat? Wait a minute you are not in charge of the whole of the US Government and anyway the oath that is taken is to the constitution not to any one person or organization so I beg to differ as a citizen of the USA it is up to the prez and his advisors and the public, not any one organization as to whether Mr. Snowden gets a pardon or the like, this is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!! Democracy rules.
Anyway it was a great documentary.
( sometimes I wonder, I wonder what planet people live on.)

Peace and have a fab week!
