Strange bedfellows have emerged following the revelations from former-NSA sub-contractor Edward Snowden regarding the NSA’s surveillance program of Americans. One side of the debate includes figures like former Vice President Dick Cheney who called Snowden a “traitor” over the weekend which is essentially President Obama’s opinion as well.


On the other side, some prominent Democrats are lining up with prominent Republicans like Kentucky Senator Rand Paul in praising Edward Snowden for breaking his classified status and releasing information to the American people.

Watching this go full circle is pretty fascinating as the same crowd, including President Obama and Vice President Biden, who harshly berated the former administration for this program are now in agreement with them to defend it.

Quite an amazing story line playing out right now in the political world.
