Snowden's behavior increasingly troubling

June 25, 2013

I have a problem with Edward Snowden, a whistle-blower who in his mind feels that he is doing the right thing, criticizing his country from foreign soil ("Leaker chase goes global," June 24).

Mr. Snowden was not yet born when during World War II the very popular slogan was, "loose lips sink ships." We are living in turbulent times when we are not sure who our enemies are and there are many extreme groups who would like to annihilate us.

The weapons used today, both nuclear and biological, are very frightening and lethal. I am willing to give up some of my privacy to the government in order to keep my family and friends as safe as possible, and I'm confident that sentiment is shared my a majority of Americans.
