Commentary by Kirby Harris
Snowden recently surfaced to call Diane Feinstein a hypocrite for being so gung-ho about the government spying on its citizens in the name of safety, but Blasting the CIA for doing it to her and her fellow Senators and Congressmen. She demanded the CIA to give an apology for spying and an acknowledgment that its actions were wrong and had received neither.
How dare she, what gall she has, or to be less delicate: What a Pair of Stones she has!
So its ok when the government spies on it’s people (form whom it derives its authority to do anything it is allowed to do, which isn’t much).
But its not Ok when its done to her, since she is a US Senator. Fire her now California, she doesn’t care about you, just her power.
Here is the article on Snowden and his comments towards Feinstein:
Snowden: Feinstein a Hypocrite for Blasting CIA SpyingFormer NSA contractor Edward Snowden accused Sen. Dianne Feinstein of hypocrisy Tuesday for complaining about alleged CIA spying on U.S. senators while tolerating government spying on private citizens.
Feinstein, the California Democrat who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday that the CIA had searched the committee's computers and that the search was potentially criminal and may have violated the Fourth Amendment.
"It's clear the CIA was trying to play 'keep away' with documents relevant to an investigation by their overseers in Congress, and that's a serious constitutional concern,” said Snowden in a statement to NBC News. “But it's equally if not more concerning that we're seeing another 'Merkel Effect,' where an elected official does not care at all that the rights of millions of ordinary citizens are violated by our spies, but suddenly it's a scandal when a politician finds out the same thing happens to them."
Snowden was apparently referring to German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s indignation at reports that the U.S. had listened in on her personal conversations, but her failure to condemn the NSA for mass surveillance of communications of German citizens. Both were revealed by the release of documents that Snowden took from NSA computers and distributed to journalists.
In a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday, Feinstein said she had asked the CIA for an apology for spying and an acknowledgment that its actions were wrong and had received neither.
