Pelosi: Snowden's judgement 'has been impaired all along'

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.

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.

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.

This freakin' meth-head has the audacity to talk about impaired judgement? My niece is a drug counselor, and says she will swear on the Bible that it is her firm belief Nancy Pelosi is a hard core drug user. She consistently displays all the symptoms of cocaine and methamphetamine abuse, and I totally believe her.

Exhibit #1A...

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.

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.

Snowden had no choice. You, Nancy Pelosi, would have had him shot. he had to run to tell the world what you were doing

Then how did he get such easy access to all of that senstive data? I think they entrapped him- and used him and are still using him.

Being a traitor solely rests on the shoulders of the originating agencies involved and the Department of Justice.

Your understanding of him in 2008 is different than mine. In mine, he gave money to Ron Paul....

Regardless, like I said, traitor is a definition applied by those in power.

Just like those in power chose not to apply that moniker to Sandy “I stole Top Secret Documents with WJC handwritten margin notes on them and stuffed them in my pants” Berger (who testified he later stuffed them into a dumpster or something).

Just like that so-called blonde secretary thingy (Valerie Plame, wife of a former Ambassador Joe Wilson who lied re: yellowcake in Libya) at the CIA who claimed she was an “undercover agent” outed by Scooter Libby who thusly went to jail over lies.

I DON’T think of Snowden as a traitor because the Obama Administration and our corrupt intelligence services say he is. They lied, they lie to us daily, they will always lie to us. They lie while appealing to your patriotism with more lies and expect you (us) to get indignant and indict him without trial.

What do Pelosi and the GOPe spokesmen both have in common? They both hate Snowden.

Just “drone” the American traitor and be done with it Nuancy.

Truth is, that is essentially what is going to happen. The obama regime will assasinate him and we’ll never know about it.

Snowden was reportedly a sysadmin. They really have the "keys to the kingdom".

It's a job requirement for them to have access to everything. And on top of that, they are responsible for granting access to everyone else.

The Dems are edgy because Snowden put a wrench in the gears of their hoped for socialist coup. I’m waiting for a high level Dem to do a Snowden and reveal their palace takeover plans.

They could hardly give a sh!t. Is anything going to come from these revelations? If you believe that, I've got a slightly used bridge for sale.

Have we seen any investigative committees, proposed legislation restrictions, or just general outcry? LOL So now it's out of the bag, and nothing is being done - the very definition of acceptance.

Did she mean to say he is exibiting poor judgement?

Because that’s not what she said.

Ironic, given that SanFranNan’s multiple facelifts have constricted her carotid arteries resulting in cerebral hypoxia accelerated dementia.
