Pelosi: Snowden's judgement 'has been impaired all along' By Daniel Strauss - 06/25/13 08:38 AM ET
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that Edward Snowden will be tracked down and prosecuted.
In an interview with CNN, Pelosi said the 30-year-old National Security Agency leaker has displayed "impaired judgement" and should return to the U.S. to "face the music."
"He'll be tracked down," Pelosi said. "I think his judgement has been impaired all along, including his judgement to go to China and then go to Russia and now be talking about going to other places. Why doesn't he feel so strongly about what he believes? Come home, face the music, make his case in court where he will, of course, be prosecuted."
Snowden is believed to be in Russia after leaving Honk Kong. The U.S. has asked Russian officials to detain him, but Russia has so far argued Snowden is not on their soil and is on international ground in Moscow's airport.
"He has not crossed the Russian border," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, according to reports. "We consider the attempts to put blame on the Russian side
absolutely groundless and unacceptable."
If *anyone* would know about impaired judgment, it would be Nancygirl.
Talk about “projection”!
Pot, meet kettle.
So... THAT’S why he was hired?
Pelosi is afraid that her kingdom would be disappeared. Leftist princess.
They are trying to have their cake and eat it too. On the one hand, Snowden was just a low level computer geek who couldn’t have accessed anything substantive, and on the other hand, he is a master spy who’s accessed every fricking piece of information NSA, CIA or FBI has and is putting our intelligence in a situation of irreparable harm.
I pretty much call bullshit on that.
Wow. That Pelosi has a real set on her, I tell ya that.
These politicians could care less about you and me. They’re just worried that Snowden has the goods on them.
Impaired judgement is the nicest thing you can say about Nancy Pelosi and the rest of congress.
I don't think so. She's like the drunk at a party who's the only one in the room that doesn't know he's drunk.
Perhaps barry and his handlers are behind this whole Snowden thing as a diversion from his other traitorous crimes.
Pelosi, you are really a hypocrite.
If this had occured 6 years ago while Bush was still in office, you would have hauled out the kneepads and be slobbering all over Snowden.
(My apologies for that image, but it's an accurate metaphor)
But, since it it is your guy's ox that is being gored, suddenly he is the criminal of the century.
Just like Stalinists all over. If you are against government intrusion, your mind is not right................
She’s just upset that she has to read so many memos that she has never read as it appears Snowden HAS read them, LOL!!!
Edward Snowden may or may not have impaired judgment, but that is not the subject of the discussion. Is he, or is he not, a traitor?. If so, to what set of ideals is he a “traitor”? If he is not a traitor, then to what set of ideals does he pledge allegiance to?
It was my understanding he was a typical Obamabot in 2008, and was greatly disillusioned when he saw the transformation of his idol into an apostle of George W. Bush, continuing the unconscionable practices set into motion by the Homeland Security Act of 2002, which included widespread collection of “metadata” and judgments based on data collected in this manner.
