Snowden's dad, Lon, gained a lot of my respect from that interview. He was much more articulate than I had expected. He demonstrated much thoughtfulness especially concerning the evolution of his perception of the case and his growing skeptisism of government and the justice system in the U.S. The father surpassed my expectations in this interview. I think he was very persuasive for those pro gov't military types who might be apt to think Ed is a traitor.
