Only Bob Beckel got it about the whistleblower Edward Snowden, The other four, Greg Gutfeld especially got it wrong. Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino and Eric Bolling want him prosecuted for exposing some of the anti-Constitutional activities at the NSA.

Me? I usually side with the four but on this issue Beckel has the correct analysis

Snowden said: “The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything. With this capability, the vast majority of human communications are automatically ingested without targeting. If I wanted to see your emails or your wife’s phone, all I have to do is use intercepts. I can get your emails, passwords, phone records, credit cards.

“I don’t want to live in a society that does these sort of things … I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded. That is not something I am willing to support or live under.”

It’s important to start at the beginning which is the un-Constitutional activities and transgressions of the NSA. Snowden saw the activities and tried to do something about it. Will he succeed? The odds are against him and he knows that. He would not be surprised if he’s captured and rendered but he tried to do something. He is a victim of an un-Constitutional enterprise. Before he’s prosecuted the NSA should be prosecuted. After all, if the NSA is wrong then exposing their wrong behavior is the right thing to do and Snowden is a hero.
