Edward Snowden is Barack Obama's karma
[SNOWDEN:] Obama's campaign promises and election gave me faith that he would lead us toward fixing the problems he outlined in his quest for votes. Many Americans felt similarly. Unfortunately, shortly after assuming power, he closed the door on investigating systemic violations of law, deepened and expanded several abusive programs, and refused to spend the political capital to end the kind of human rights violations like we see in Guantanamo, where men still sit without charge.
Snowden's acts were the direct outcome of Obama's betrayals, one of his many betrayals. And all things work together for good, don't they? Because we may be able to undo some of the damage Bush caused, as well as the damage Obama caused.
