C'mon, fess up. Do you want Ed Snowden there so you can find out why and how he leaked all those American secret information to the media despite his oath of secrecy?
Or do you think there's really not that much interesting about him, that he's a self-centered guy who has decided that somehow he knows better than others in our Nation what should and should not be kept secret and how it should be kept secret? And he is arrogantly willing to reveal information that could put others in danger?
I'm in the latter camp. I'd rather have around my dinner table individuals who can explain the way our government handles this overload of information and just who gets security clearance and why. I don't want this grandiose guy to be at the table. Besides, I don't think he'd be a great conversationalist since he seems to be convinced of his own righteousness and doesn't leave much room for the possibility that he behaved wrongly, even criminally?
I prefer a wide-ranging conversation with intelligent people I trust about whether privacy has taken on a whole new meaning in this country (and elsewhere) and whether we simply have to get comfortable with that.
