Hey, guess who wanted leakers tortured? That’s *right*: Ed Snowden!

Welcome to the Fishbowl, Eddie.

Meanwhile, back at the story that will resume being front and center by Friday:

During a 2009 trip to Switzerland, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden logged into an internet chat room he frequented to cure what was apparently a case of homesickness and general loneliness. According to a report in Ars Technica, which got a copy of the chat logs, Snowden riffed off a New York Times story about cyber-attacks in Iran designed to slow the nation’s acquisition of a nuclear bomb. Whoever leaked that story to the Times, Snowden opined, “should be shot in the balls.”

…well, I wouldn’t go that far.  But, yeah, I got a problem with people who, oh, deliberately reveal classified information for the express purpose of embarrassing the United States of America.  Guess Snowden stared into the abyss for just a little too long?

  1. Doubtful. There are people who still idolize Bradley Manning and he did as much if not more damage than Snowden.
