“Con­sid­er­ing the enor­mous value of the in­for­ma­tion he has re­vealed, and the abuses he has ex­posed, [Ed­ward] Snow­den de­serves bet­ter than a life of per­ma­nent ex­ile, fear and flight. He may have com­mit­ted a crime to do so, but he has done his coun­try a great ser­vice. It is time for the United States to of­fer Mr. Snow­den a plea bar­gain or some form of cle­mency that would al­low him to re­turn home, face at least sub­stan­tially re­duced pun­ish­ment in light of his role as a whis­tle-blower, and have the hope of a life ad­vo­cat­ing for greater pri­vacy and far stronger over­sight of the run­away in­tel­li­gence com­mu­nity.”

— from “Ed­ward Snow­den, whis­tle blower”, a re­cent New York Times ed­i­to­rial. “They’ve re­ally made them­selves a blame-Amer­ica first rag, and why we ex­alt The New York Times is be­yond me. They go out of their way to be apol­o­gists for ter­ror­ists and go af­ter those in law en­force­ment and mil­i­tary who are try­ing to win this war…They have this nar­row, lib­eral, left-wing ide­o­log­i­cal point of view. They did it to the NYPD; they’re try­ing to do it to the NSA. It’s time for Amer­i­cans to stand up and re­ject The New York Times and ex­pose them for the rag that they are.”

— Rep. Peter King, New York Repub­li­can, re­act­ing to the afore­men­tioned ed­i­to­rial, to Fox News.
