I'll never forget when HPSCI made its Snowden report public - 11 days after my Game Theory thread, and just before Christmas 2016.
Now that we know how deep Russia had been penetration US intelligence prior to Snowden's betrayal and defection, let's review: he was not a democracy-concerned whistleblower, but a saboteur for foreign enemies. https://fas.org/irp/congress/2016_rpt/hpsci-snowden.pdf …
Snowden cost billions. And yes, while that money could have gone into additional defense, for that matter it could have gone to pre-natal care, climate change, or anything other than fixing the damage from giving enemies critical defense information.
Funny that Snowden now wants what he deems a "fair" trial, when in reality, he claims he doesn't believe in the U.S. system of justice to begin with.
You'd think he'd rather stay in a nice place like Russia.
