Conservatives don't care about the law, only what they can make political hay out of. I don't see them calling for the arrest and prosecution of whoever hacked the DNC emails, but if somebody did it to the RNC they'd be howling like mad.
Cute, but since hacking DNC email is clearly a crime (and no one is claiming otherwise), why the need for Republians (or anyone) to 'call for the arrest' of the hackers? Is it now the case that unless you specifically demand prosecution of a crime committed against others you are presumed to be supporting the crime/criminals that committed it?
Snowden is an anti authoritarian whistle blower, specifically about the authoritarianism that conservatives put in place after their utter failure to prevent 9/11.
Who ran Washington before Bush? (Democrats)
When did planning start for 9/11 attack? (Years before Bush took the oath of office)
Who made it harder for intelligence agencies to share information on suspects/investigations? (Hint: Not Republicans)
Before TSA was invented (in RESPONSE to 9/11) how do you imagine the federal government could have prevented 9/11? On 9/10 the 20 hijackers were simply men from the Middle East that we're learning to fly jet airplanes.
Can you imagine if a Democrat had been in office? And yet we never hear anybody talking about what a massive screw up that was.
Except for you, the 9/11 commission, and nearly anyone you ask - who doesn't think (in hindsight) the events leading up to 9/11 constitute a massive national security 'screw-up'?
Apparently when George Bush took the Oath of Office he accepted responsibility for every intelligence failure yet to be discovered from the previous administration...
