3. What did Snowden reveal and what did he not reveal?

 

Other than the metadata warrant (which we already knew about) and the fact that we spy on other counties (also known), the rest of Snowden's claims are expected to be taken at face value without any corroborating evidence.

Why didn't he provide evidence that he could hack into the President's email?

Why didn't he provide evidence that the NSA has 'direct access' into the world's Internet providers? (A claim roundly refuted by all the companies involved.)

Why didn't he provide evidence that the NSA can watch our thoughts form as we type?

Why didn't he provide evidence that the NSA downloads the Internet on a daily basis?

Why didn't he explain what he meant when he said he "saw things"?

He was a Systems Administrator, not an Intelligence Analyst, so he never had the access he claimed else he would have provided evidence.

So, no, I'm not going to get up in arms about someone who has no evidence then flees to foreign countries and starts giving away my country's secrets.

So then I'm right about being wrong.
