    And that's why you don't take nude selfies.

    Publicity stunt. Some 'shocking' information that anyone with any sense already figured was happening. Of course nudie pics are going to be shown/discussed/passed on.

    yeah I was like 4 months ago...

    I think he has finally run out of information that he knows the public will care about. If you don't want people to see your nudy pics then don't take em. My friend who used to work at Verizon said they can catchem there too, especially all the ones that don't make it to the correct phone. I have seen more peoples nudy pics leaked by other people or the people they were sent to sending them around then the US gov has prob leaked. I have to say hes prob just grasping at straws. No matter what he says, as long as he has highly sensitive US data and is in Russia or in contact with the Russian gov he's a Russian spy to me.

  10. This isn't something new. And I'm not tired of hearing news about him. I don't consider him a hero or villain but I do encourage him to keep leaking information that public eyes don't know about. I believe this helps those that arent so tech savvy with providing their own information online. It will help them be more aware of the issue and use their own judgment on what information they wish to display online.

    Yea, I could care less if my nudes are passed around. I walk around the house naked and with the windows open. People looking in should be minding their own business, but if they do look in they get a nice surprise! ****, I'd be flattered if they were passing around my nudes. Thank you NSA! lol

    I hope we continue to hear about Snowden, for as long as we continue to keep troops overseas. Yeah I know they are not really related, but neither one is accomplishing anything here at home.

    I think this applies more to surveillance footage and less to selfies. Either way, Snowden is a sodding hero as far as I'm concerned.

  14. When will Edward "KILLJOY" Snowden shut up?

    Perhaps his next pathetic chapter in life secrets will be "NSA Director's toilet routine" or some other thing that no one cares about.

    Did you hear me Snowden? NO ONE CARES ANYMORE.

    I can't believe that people are saying they're bored of this guy, and by association the question of civil liberties. Especially any Americans among you - your country is meant to be founded on principals and throwing off tyranny, and yet you're totally disengaging in the debate because "that's so 2013"? Jeez..

    Bubbajim, that is your opinion to which you are entitled. Others might hold a different opinion to which they are also entitled.

    And this is what is wrong with the country. Nobody cares what's going on any more, as long as we're not being accused of something. The life and times of Kim Kardashian is more important to the majority of citizens. The government is supposed to work for *us*, not spy on us for no legal reason. Your point of view may change once they come after you. Something as simple as banning you from flying on airlines, because their database cross referenced an overseas phone call that you didn't even think twice about.

    Open your eyes, people...

    Guy is a traitor, plain and simple. You think you really want to know everything the US Government is doing to keep us safe? That's naive. Watch something as simple and probably common as The Lone Survivor and tell me if you think you can make the hard decisions so easily.
