I recall John Kerry badmouthing him when he first went to Russia

something like: "you little coward. If you are a Patriot you will come back to America and subject yourself to our criminal justice system. You will get a fair trial before the US government forces you to spend the rest of your life in solitary confinement."

The Obama administration has prosecuted more whistle blowers than all previous administrations combined! Better to be banished from your country of origin, but still free, instead of enduring the corrupt system of our utterly unjust and draconian legal system.

But, we have two America's now and Edward is not a member of the "PTB club" and won't get a soft sentence like Gen. Petreaus. They'll dungeon him like Chelsea Manning or the innocents in Guantanamo that have been imprisoned without charge for over ten years.

Between this and Bernie our national conversation is now vectoring towards important things like issues and whether we still want to at least pretend America is still a Democracy.

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS
