Now the governments are just making shit up and blaming it on the leaks:

I'm sorry, but I am tired of Greenwald's grandstanding. The Snowden leaks were meant to inform the public about .gov intrusion and the erosion of our rights. The 1st amendment is down the toilet if people are afraid of exchanging ideas, or publishing news, if they must fear govt spying.

Unfortunately, the Snowden/Greenwald circus gets all the press instead of the content of the leaks.

Snowden provided Greenwald with his info to INFORM, not provide Greenwald with ammo for revenge, now that a very predictable action by the UK was taken. Was flying thru London the only way for his partner to get where he was going? Were they REALLY surprised at what happened?

revenge, no he is just doing his job.

Indeed, and so were the Brits that detained his lover. Snowden did not hand those materials to Greenwald for his personal vendettas. I mean, you HAVE heard of his threats to release more Snowden material as it relates to UK since this happened, right? It cheapens Snowdens actions and also probably serves to turn the public against him. Greenwald is a .gov misinfo agent

no it's pretty obvious the uk violated their own laws in detaining him as a terrorist for being glenn greenwalds lover.
