Cover-ups are nothing new. They didn't begin with the National Security Agency.

Let's make a small list here:

  • General Custer burning villages and killing Indians = cover-up.
  • The attack on Pearl Harbor, FDR knew was coming = cover-up.
  • General George Patton assassinated by our own allies = cover-up.
  • Jimmy Hoffa disappears = cover-up.
  • The assassination of JFK = cover-up.
  • The Iran-Contra scandal = cover-up.
  • President Richard Nixon and Watergate = cover-up.

Are you all catching on now? Still trust your government? Edward Snowden is a hero, not a traitor.
