So far, it is established that Snowden betrayed our Ruling Class. It remains to be seen whether he betrayed his country. It does not remain to be seen whether Our Ruling Class have betrayed the country. They are manifold traitors. In a just world, every dime beyond their salary of office that they have made since they were sworn in would be confiscated and given to wounded vets and their families. Any peep of protest from them would be met with a choice between prison or cleaning toilets in Afghanistan until all troops were called home. That’s because I don’t believe in the death penalty, even for treason.
