It was hard to control my gag reflex when I saw National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden’s picture above the fold on the front page of the Dec. 24 Post, along with the headline, “Edward Snowden: ‘I already won’  .”

Mr. Snowden is like a petty thief who managed to get employed in a billionaire’s house for the purpose of stealing expensive jewelry. Then he skipped the country. He single-handedly did enormous damage to our national security.
