“House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) left little doubt Tuesday as to how he thinks NSA leaker Edward Snowden should be dealt with: as an enemy of the state.“He’s a traitor,” Boehner said on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America.’” Washington Post
In case you’ve just returned from Mars, Snowden, an employee of a private security contractor hired by your government, revealed that said government has established a vast cellphone and Internet surveillance program that indiscriminately gathers data about your communication and mine.
Note: both Feinstein and Boehner are sworn to uphold the Constitution, and both knew about and approved the surveillance program.
The Fourth Amendment of that very same Constitution reads:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Before moving on, you might want to reread that....
So here's the obvious question: Just who is betraying their oath of allegiance to the Constitution and the nation?
Or the esteemed Speaker and the chairwoman the of the Senate Intelligence (sic) Committee.
The answer, fellow freedom-loving Americans, is as obvious as it is dangerous.
