Posted on 06/11/2013 5:44:52 AM PDT by LibFreeUSA
House Speaker John Boehner today called NSA leaker Edward Snowden a traitor who put Americans at risk by releasing classified information to the media. Hes a traitor, the highest ranking Republican in the House of Representatives said in an extensive interview with ABC News George Stephanopoulos. The disclosure of this information puts Americans ... continued here

Now we know who the ‘real traitors’ are.
Go to hell, you drunken crying SOB.
Boehner is far more a traitor that this guy.
The leadership in congress as well as the president are the true traitors.
A good start.
John you are the traitor here, we trusted you and you are simply turning us all in to your prey
I was just going to say that now I KNOW Snowden did the right thing.
We sure are finding out aren’t we...
So he’ll attack someone who lets us all know the government is overreaching.
But he won’t attack someone who is overreaching.
Thanks John, ya douche.
I’m telling you people, with talk like this from this clown, we are screwed!
you pledge an oath to the CONSTITUTION to protect IT from all enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC.
It seems to be that this guy is a hero and our government are the traitors.
Sure, but any Congressman who did not make it known, to the American people, the extent they knew as to how much the NSA was spying on the American people are also traitors.
Yes, we are looking at you, Boehner.
The Free-America loathers are the true traitors. There are many.
have another drink John
you’ll feel better about America by noon
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
John “Big Government” Boehner definitely will never be accused of being a patriot.
kettle calling the pot “black”....
I waiver back and forth whether we should just let the GOP crumble in 2014 to get rid of this rancid leadership, or whether it is vital to the country to keep some balance of power. I thought of Obama having Pelosi and Reid for 2 final years seems unpalatable....and I think that’s what the RNC is betting on. Still not sure we shouldn’t let the Dems take over and hit rock bottom in hopes of saving it a generation from now.
I didn’t know that Boner was a heavy drinker.
The traitors WERE the Republicans that put this
enormous, crying, waste of a position in power
to help Obama and the coup d’etat.
nnot to mention Marko Rubio
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are traitors for allowing four men to die in Benghazi. John Roberts is a traitor for allowing an obviously-unconstitutional and poorly written law in Obamacare pass judicial muster. Bradley Manning is a traitor for implicating named people and departments in a leak of classified data.
Edward Snowden confirmed to the world that America is spying on everyone and everything, something most of us understood. He didn’t name names and no one’s died as a result of his release of information. In my opinion, Snowden is a hero.
John Boehner is a weak-willed, knee-clattering alcoholic pansy which, while not the most auspicious of character traits, seems to be a requirement for any man or woman with an (R) next to their name on Capitol Hill.
I’ll let the “traitor” into my house.
Bonehead would get chased down the street.
He is slime.
Not as slimy as the Obamadork, but a very close cousin.
Have a drink, bonehead. Have another...and another.
Keep going until you assume room temp, you dork.
This may be the most politically STUPID thing this guy has ever done. I would not be surprised to see a BIG challenge to this guy in his Congressional district to take him down in the next election. I would rather see a Democrat take over his district so he’s not around anymore as a “Leader” to cause our side so much damage.
FUJB. I am sick to death of JB.
Republicans keep saying this but how does telling us that the government (Obama) is spying on us make us less safer?
is there something else that Snowden told the media that I missed?
Probably did not put anyone at risk. Manning did. So did McCain, Jane Fonda, John Kerry and God knows how many more rats.
And Boehner did, by letting Omurderer have free rein.
Think anyone will admit this is what their ‘lesser evil’ BS gets them?
Nah. Too much to hope for.
“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” William Pitt
LOL! Considering what this government has done and gotten away with in the past year alone I would call a hell of a lot more treasonous that what this Snowden did. Let’s start with an admitted foreign born communist Kenyan being unconstitutionally elected twice and the ‘rats and RINOs helping him every step of the way if you want to talk about treason Mr. Bay-nerd.
This problem of corruption in DC will only stop when the American people go 1776 on their asses. Not a moment sooner. Elections don’t work any more when only a few large cities can use massive vote fraud to foist corrupt, parasitic Marxist leadership on the rest of us.
I think Boehner is a traitor also. He sold out the nation to fill his own pockets and personal desires for wealth and power and control. He is a thug politician in the same order as any liberal dimocrat.
Come on. The Administration has dirt on Boehner of the worst kind. I’ll bet they have emails and voice mail of him bragging about hookers and more. All they have to do is leave a few clues around and all this pols will do exactly what they want. 90% of the Republican pols have been compromised and I’m not sure about the other 10%.
You have to build an alternative. There is no alternative.
This has got to stop. And I have to have somewhere to flee to.
Say what you want about Boner but he is right; Snowden is a traitor.
The government is no different from you and me swearing an oath to protect this country against all enemies foreign AND DOMESTIC.
Think about it especially since we have such a porous border - how do you uncover domestic enemies?
By exposing NSA’s listening techniques, Snowden should rot in Hell.
While there is a lot about the background of this person and some of it I find very incredible, based on the supposed (from what I’ve seen online) release of information (a 40 something Powerpoint re: Prism) I don’t see this as traitorous, especially in light of a freedom-grabbing President in control of the entire government apparatus. Boehner is completely wrong.
I’m convinced that Boehner and high ranking politicians on both sides of the isle not only knew about the wide spread NSA surveillance but also were instrumental in setting it up.
no no no no and no
we have to keep fighting, but we need to make perfectly crystal clear to the conservative side that there will be no compromise with evil. None of this pragmatic garbage.
We need your credit card information and everything you say, think, and do, everywhere you go, what you believe, any prayers you might post, what groups you belong to, who you voted for or who you plan on voting for, how many abortions you’ve had, how many guns you own, who you donated to, the names and all communications of all your family and associates, where you worship, everything your kids say think or do, when their band practice is over, all the photos from their slumber parties, vacations, etc....the whole enchilada...
And DON’T WORRY!!! Your personal information is ALL kept from the prying eyes of your Benevolent Overlords by a couple of pieces of paper...a little something we call...SEARCH WARRANT* and WIRETAPPING LAWS**
(*SEARCH WARRANT subject to Judge Shopping and Overly Broad Sweeps
**WIRETAPPING LAWS notoriously violated by administrations to the point it’s a cliche’ Results not guaranteed)
We MUST have all this and MORE, to keep you safe. TRUST BIG BROTHER.
The entire political class of both parties have ignored the Constitution (which may now be a “keyword”) for so long that I don’t believe they grasp the implications of what the NSA is doing.
We know there are “safeguards” built-in ..and I don’t doubt for a minute that many if not most of NSA abide by them yet the reason we HAVE the amendments is to protect us from those seduced by power- from those who cannot or will not resist that seduction..
It’s no surprise that people with the mindset that government’s role is to protect us from every scenario, who believe that government’s role is to right every perceived injustice, that government’s role is to provide for as many people as possible, would be in favor of government amassing mountains of information about the people it claims to represent.
I guess treason is in the eye of the beholder.
Every week the wish gets stronger for a SUCCESSFUL Eagle Eye moment!
He is not a traitor, he is a hero, our people are supposed to keep government straight and that is what he has risked everything to do. we are in charge of the government, not the other way around.
