Edwards snowed in the NSA leaker is now on the loose last we saw on me was at that five star hotel in Hong Kong now he's out.
But the big question is.
-- traitor or is he a hero interestingly enough the guy who co founded Home Depot yesterday can lingo and said I don't Neil Cavuto show.
We -- to throw this guy a party and thank him for helping protect America's privacy rights we.
And -- I like cattle I like Camelot I think I'm on the in this case we have to learn a little bit more about trying to evade the question back.
A lot a lot of unanswered questions out there -- how did -- get this information.
At his level as this analysts level in Hawaii in this kind of satellite office it's unclear how -- got this information number one number till.
I I for 1 am glad we have this information but at the same time that he could have indeed looks like he had violated.
The terms of his agreement to work in this contract for capacity with the NSA so he could both be libel criminally and civilly.
And give us information that we're glad as Americans who still believe in -- constitution.
We're glad that we have so both things could I could and it be an effective.
But Laura we can never have top secret programs if the whole country knows about them but just the nature of it we -- representatives to go to the intelligence committee.
And they exposed to be looking all right -- best interest that's where our system works now I want to have an open discussion about -- -- surveillance methods writes oh cents.

They could have that and again we we need to let us learn more about that yet but I wasn't comfortable with the threat to US do you think that this case is similar to the story about the IRS.
Is a lot of people are linking the two together.
And I think I see a difference where the iris is actually targeting specific people in this case we were all being watched.
Well again that we're all -- -- -- in the future you're accused of some wrongdoing the element which may or may not be valid Gretchen.
And then the government says -- you know something we have this meta data at that it's actually very valuable I learned that yesterday -- my radio show from an NSA whistle blower with what the NSA for thirty years.
Who said people don't understand how valuable.
This meta data is what what great information this gives us -- analysts.
At the NSA so retroactively.
Information can be used that was -- collected in this dragnet fashion by the US government that is not the way the US justice system.
And our constitution is supposed to operate and I wish we had people on Capitol Hill more of them.
For more informed in more curious about the abuse of federal power it would exposed to be working for us and not the other way around.

How they've been eyeball and all of us for -- what is your opinion on this as well behind closed doors behind closed door that they -- who.

My daughter or her boyfriend or her rapists.
Can go out to that pharmacy and get a bunch you know hormone pills to give a little girl.
We don't really know the long term effect a -- of the spiking her dropping a little girls.
Ellen and -- still a young woman or a little girl's hormone levels it's how great this is girls can't you know as -- -- -- say it all the time they can't get their -- parents that can't take it.
At village school without -- without parental permission.
Yet they can go into a pharmacy and this brave new world of of women's equality and quote reproductive health.
And get and get a morning after pill I mean.
