We can applaud media's greater NSA scrutiny AND think that Snowden's resume/timing/motives [View all]

deserve scrutiny, too.

Why on earth would anyone who lived through the last few decades of BushInc not be cognizant of the benefit the closer scrutiny from the corporate media that Snowden brought to NSA's excesses?

Why on earth would anyone who lived through the last few decades of BushInc not be cognizant of all the red flags on Snowden's work record and not question the motives of someone who skipped over the excesses of the CIA and NSA during the worst of their over-reach, then concentrated all his verbal firepower on President Obama?

And, for the record, I highly doubt President Obama has accrued enough power in DC over the last 5 years to take ON, let alone take down the darker forces of the CIA and NSA and the select private firms that form the powerful elite. Selected in the 70s and 80s by Poppy Bush. It's naive to think that any president since has held complete control over the CIA and NSA.

Remember NSA Whistleblower Russ Tice: The NSA began spying on Obama in 2004; the program, which spied on members of government, the military, and the private sector, was run out of VP Cheney's office; the country is run by the upper echelon of the intel community, not the 3 legitimate branches of government.
