from Greenwald's et al's article on the Guardian:
"[Snowden] said it was during his CIA stint in Geneva that he thought for the first time about exposing government secrets. But, at the time, he chose not to for two reasons.
First, he said, 'Most of the secrets the CIA has are about people, not machines and systems, so I didn't feel comfortable with disclosures that I thought could endanger anyone'. Secondly, the election of Barack Obama in 2008 gave him hope that there would be real reforms, rendering disclosures unnecessary." (emphasis added)
I find it both funny and sad that otherwise intelligent and decent people can STILL be taken in by these sociopathic bushbots.
