'I Don’t Want to Be Lectured By a Traitor’: Krauthammer Blasts Snowden’s SXSW Talk
NSA leaker Edward Snowden spoke via live stream at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, about government surveillance and the Constitution.
Ron Fournier, of National Journal, said he “doesn’t give a hoot” about Snowden, but some of his revelations raised serious questions about balancing security and liberty. However, Fournier said a lot of what he revealed should have been kept secret and has damaged the country’s intelligence.
“I don’t mind being lectured by Ron about the Fourth Amendment and privacy because I respect Ron, but I don’t want to be lectured by a traitor who speaks from a land that doesn’t have a Constitution, or had one and it was entirely eviscerated by a thug who just invaded another land,” Charles Krauthammer said.
Krauthammer said Americans should have a conversation about the Constitution, but not with Snowden leading it.
