It's valid advice. Snowden will be crucified because, like it or not, libertarian or not, Russia & China are still seen as our enemies. Even with a President Ron Paul, they'd continue to be enemies. Rand Paul's advice is perfectly valid--because befriending an enemy and leaking secrets to them and them alone DOES make him a traitor. At the moment, I think his secrets are safe with himself and with Glen Greenwald. I'm sure they've prepared some bigger story to break, just in case Snowden unexpectedly disappears or is murdered.
