Letter: Self-righteous betrayal
Edward Snowden complains that the Obama administration is trying to block his efforts to seek asylum. I suggest that this country is and should be rather trying to block his efforts to actually get asylum – much more like a prosecutor trying to defeat a successful plea of “not guilty,” than preventing the plea itself. Make your case, Mr. Snowden, as best you can. Forfeit will not be made in favor of your incredibly irresponsible self-righteous betrayal.
