Kevin McCarthy is No Edward Snowden — But He Should Find the Comparison Flattering

by Thomas L Knapp

“Edward Snowden is probably the 21st century’s greatest American hero, driven into exile under threat of life imprisonment for exposing the crimes of agencies like those [pearl-clutching former CIA/FBI employee Tracy] Walder worked for. While McCarthy should find the comparison flattering, he isn’t putting his life or freedom, or even his job, at risk by doing the right thing here. Nor is what he’s exposing the equivalent of what a cat does in the litter box and then tries to cover up, as were Snowden’s revelations. He’s just releasing footage of  events that occurred in a public building and are of obvious public interest.” (03/02/23)
