Their failure is an open joke now. He should have been fed to the sharks in little pieces five minutes after he bought that ticket to Hong Kong and they reviewed his work access. How are they "watching terrorists" but not their own employees with admin access.
It's time for every manager above Snowden to "fall on their swords". And if they committ suicide right now we won't have to arrest theirs families too. Even if they did catch him, they should be offed for ALLOWING him to gather that much data, ever.
I'm all for whistleblower status, but Snowden should have been DEAD, HORRIBLY within 24 hours of that flight to Hong Kong. They should have "accidented" the whole plane just to get him... They had NO IDEA who he was talking too! Their standards are laughable if THESE PEOPLE are all we got holding the line against terrorists.
