Obama’s campaign promises and election gave me faith that he would lead us toward fixing the problems he outlined in his quest for votes. Many Americans felt similarly. Unfortunately, shortly after assuming power, he closed the door on investigating systemic violations of law, deepened and expanded several abusive programs, and refused to spend the political capital to end the kind of human rights violations like we see in Guantanamo, where men still sit without charge.

Snowden had all of the evidence of the NSA phone stuff before Obama was president and he wanted to release it back then. But because he drank the Obama Cool-Aid back in 2008 like most Americans, he sat on it. And now we have what we have.

Back in 2008 I remembered when Lew Rockwell said Obama was a militarist. People laughed at him. Well…

At least now Snowden trying to be part of the solution, but it would have been really nice if he had done what he did back then instead of now.
