Did you ever think you'd see the day...

…when a United States citizen – who by all accounts loves his country – would be forced to seek safety in Russia?

I grew up in the Cold War era, and it is unfathomable to me that Russia is Snowden’s best hope. I don’t think that the U.S. government can save face at all given their disregard for privacy except when it comes to their unethical and illegal behavior. But I realize they’re desperate enough to try anything except sitting idly by while Snowden, Russ Tice and others expose them in all their nefarious glory.
