Snowden gave documents to journalists that revealed the scope and reach of unconstitutional spying by the federal government on American citizens.
Today Kerry also told CBS This Morning:
He should man up, come back to the United States. If he has a complaint about what’s wrong with American surveillance, come back here and stand in our system of justice and make his case. But instead, he’s just sitting there taking pot shots at his country, violating his oath that he took when he took on the job he took, and betraying, I think, the fundamental agreement that he entered into when he became an employee.Kerry fails to point out that the oath Snowden took was to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” And Kerry admits that the debate about privacy and the NSA would not have “risen” to its current level without the Snowden disclosures.
