The Great and Powerful Woz is a fan of Ed Snowden
The Great and Powerful Woz - Apply co-founder Steve Wozniak, is calling Edward Snowden his "hero" for exposing the NSA's Prism program in which massive spying on private citizens without warrants, in Woz's view, threatened the Constitution and violated the spirit of the Internet. He sees Snowden as a patriot and an idealist. The jury is still out on that, but it's hard to argue with Woz.
Side note: the pardon petition for Snowden surpassed 100,000 signatures this week, which means Obama must address it. Obviously he won't pardon Snowden, but his being forced to address the petition regarding a topic that he's stayed as far away from as possible, is comical a the least.
All our enemies, China and Russia specifically, have used Snowden to humiliate Obama. And he can't do anything about it. This is why he's staying away from talking about it.
