Sanders on Snowden: The Gnawing Questions

Abby Zimet

Dismissing the hero-or-traitor debate swirling around Edward Snowden in "the court of public opinion," the ever-cogent Bernie Sanders insists the issue should be "the gnawing questions his actions raised from the shadows" - as in, what else is the government doing to invade our privacy, why did/do they lie about it, why do Democrats let Obama get away with the same curbing of liberties for which they blasted Bush, when will the Obama administration stop misleading - okay, lying to - the public so that "the truth has been victimized," etc. Sanders = national treasure.
