Scathing editorial in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal, regarding Sen. Rand Paul‘s (R-Ky.) defense of admitted NSA leaker Edward Snowden:
As President, Mr. Paul couldn’t behave like some ACLU legal gadfly. He’d be responsible for setting standards for the entire security bureaucracy. To offer Mr. Snowden leniency on such terms would send a signal that any federal employee could leak any secret as long as he claims a higher moral cause. …
If Mr. Paul wants to make that case, he can do so in the GOP primaries. We don’t agree, and we doubt the courts or the American public will either. But arguing that Edward Snowden is some kind of national hero shows an unseriousness about national security that would make him unsuitable to be Commander in Chief.
