Re: “Snowden doesn’t matter; intelligence debacles do” (editorial, 8-5).

Edward Snowden shared with WikiLeaks, not The News Tribune, hence, WikiLeaks knows more than you. So how can you be so sure that he should not have shared it with Congress instead of WikiLeaks?

There are already nearly 100 members of Congress who know all about the fact that Americans have been spied on illegally by the Intelligence State in the U.S. ever since it started under George W. Bush. Why trust them?

By coming out against courageous whistleblowers, you put yourself in the same category as those who would continue the slide into a totalitarian total surveillance state even worse than George Orwell described.
