Not About Heroes

I just realized that what he's saying isn't that Snowden is not a hero, but that we must give up our privacy to the government. That's the argument he's really making.

I don't know why he bothers to bring up Parks and MLK at all, since they aren't relevant to his point that he's afraid of terrorists due to the hours when he didn't know if his daughter was alive. I don't know about Parks, but MLK would be the first to complain about being on the NSA, CIA, or FBI lists.

What a coward Schieffer is, willing to toss the sacrifices of millions of people out the window because of 20 hijackers. He really deserves to live under tyranny, where you basically cave in and let the country's leaders do whatever they want to do.
