Snowden has reemerged in my news compiler, having been granted refugee status in Russia.  He chose some interesting destinations to his escape to from the tyranny and authoritarian policies of the United States.  Maybe the CIA World Factbook is skewed in their analysis of Russia's government and it's really the land of freedom and rainbows.  Otherwise I would start to wonder about Snowden's intelligence, among other things.

We have been warned for a long time by hackers that they can access all of our online information if they wanted to, so while I am appalled by the authority given to the NSA to monitor us, I am not surprised. There were many ways to bring this to our attention that would have been more productive but now the NSA can appear to be a wronged party whose ability to protect us has been compromised.
