Because until Snowden told them, China had no idea that we were hacking them. Right. Hero. Snowden is spurring the most important political discussion among Americans for the next thirty years.

Edward Snowden swore an oath not to divulge classified information. He did anyway, of course, and seems to have no moral qualms about doing so. On the other hand, the intelligence he leaked to the Guardian was deeply unsettling and should send chills up the spines of every American who uses modern technology – although I suspect most people would agree they’d rather know they’re being snooped on than be kept in the dark.

Regardless of which side of the traitor/hero divide you find yourself in alignment, one thing is absolutely clear: the public at large doesn’t really know...
