Dick Cheney on Snowden and NSA Exposure

So every now and then Dick Cheney slithers out of his hole and offers Americans his take on certain things. The recent appearance of Darth Cheney is to call this Snowden kid a traitor, for exposing what our NSA does to its own citizens with respect to warrantless wiretapping, snooping, and spying on Americans. What Snowden exposed was that it was everyday Americans being monitored, not some homegrown potential terrorist that was being watched. And even when we have credible intel on who to watch, like the Boston bombers, there is certainly no guarantee of prevention of a crime. Cheney should realize that the reality now is simply the end-line result of the Patriot Act which his boss signed into law.

But a traitor?

For someone who surrounded himself with Libby, Perle, Wolfowitz, Abrams, the Wurmsers, Doug Feith and the other neocon filth that sold the war in Iraq to the American public on a pack of lies, concerted lies and disinformation, I would be hesitant to use such terms. Thousands of dead and wounded US soldiers, hundreds of thousands dead Iraqi "insurgents", millions of Iraqis displaced for what? To preserve the petro-dollar? All on a pack of lies that Cheney and his neocon ilk told to the American people for 2 years until they bought it. How much money did Halliburton and KBR make on this illegal occupation in Iraq? How many no-bid contracts did his former firm get? How many billions in profit does it take for Dick Cheney to call the actions justified?

What defines treason, Dick Cheney, and are you the best person to levy that charge against someone else, who simply exposed another governmental side-step of the Constitution?
