Dick Cheney Calls Edward Snowden a Traitor … Deeply Suspicious’ Snowden May Be a Chinese Spy … Defends NSA Surveillance Program
Politics makes strange bed fellows, doesn’t it? In a rather remarkable Sunday talk show appearance, Dick Cheney appears on FNS to strongly defend the NSA data surveillance program in a way in which the Obama administration has failed to. After all the bad-mouthing that Obama has done over the years of GWB, Cheney and the Patriot Act surveillance programs, it is Cheney that comes to Obama’s defense.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and discussed the recent revelations by “whistle-blower” Edward Snowden coming forward to state that the NSA data surveillance programs are Unconstitutionally collecting data on all Americans. Cheney called Snowden a “traitor” and questioned whether Snowden had have been a spy all along for the Chinese. As reported at the Politico, Cheney stated, “I’m suspicious because he went to China. That’s not a place where you would ordinarily want to go if you are interested in freedom, liberty and so forth. It raises questions whether or not he had that kind of connection before he did this.” Cheney further went on to defended the NSA programs that were created when he was VP; however, he criticized Barack Obama for suggesting that the war on terror is winding down. Cheney said, “First of all he’s wrong, it’s not winding down … the threat is bigger than ever.”
“I think he’s a traitor … I think he has committed crimes,” Cheney said in an interview with “Fox News Sunday.”
The former number two to President George W. Bush said he suspects Snowden was a Chinese spy all along, questioning his decision to flee to Hong Kong ahead of releasing classified information on the NSA’s phone and Internet monitoring programs.
Cheney defended those data surveillance methods as essential to national security, arguing that the threat from terrorism is worse than ever.
“I think he’s a traitor… I’m deeply suspicious (Snowden is a spy) because he went to China. That’s not a place where you ordinarily want to go if you’re interested in freedom and liberty and so forth. So, it raises questions whether or not he had that kind of a connection he had before he did this. The other concern I had was whether or not he had help from inside the agency… That is to say, was there someone else in NSA who had access to some of this stuff and passed it to him. That’s presumably one of the things they’ll look at.”

Hmm, think Cheney will get a thank you from Obama?
Let’s take a good look at what Obama has said in the past about the false choice between liberty and security in the past when he was not president.
HYPOCRIT MOMENT OF THE WEEK …
Jane Fonda continues to be one of the most loathed/hated/despised individuals of all times. “Hanoi” Jane Fonda tells US military veterans boycotting her movie, ‘The Butler’ to “GET A LIFE”. Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and founder of the “Boycott Hanoi Jane Playing Nancy Reagan” Facebook has criticized the casting of Hanoi Jane Fonda as Nance Reagan. Gee, ya think? If there was anything ever that might be more boycottable that this American traitor be cast as the beloved former first lady Nancy Reagan, I am not sure what it is? Because nothing says Nancy Reagan as does Hanoi Jane.
When Jane Fonda was cast as former First Lady Nancy Reagan in Lee Daniels’ forthcoming film “The Butler,” some Reagan fans were not pleased. Now, with the biographical due to hit theaters in October, a movement to boycott the movie is gaining some momentum.
Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and founder of the “Boycott Hanoi Jane Playing Nancy Reagan” Facebook page has been particularly vocal about the casting decision, given Fonda’s past frolicking with the enemy during the Vietnam War.
I made a commitment early on not to support her projects,” Reyes told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “Then when I heard she was going to play such a well-liked and highly respected president’s wife, it got to me. They (the filmmakers) knew by picking Jane for the part they were going to stir up some stuff. I’m not a conservative or a liberal, I’m an American. And that was a slap in the face.”
This week, Fonda had a simple message for Reyes and the page’s fans … “Get a life.”
So the uber-LEFTY Jane Fonda thinks that it is perfectly A-O-K for her to protest and boycott the Vietnam War, but it’s not ok to boycott her movie? Seems like typical liberal hypocrisy. One might want to tell Jane Fonda to “GET A LIFE”!
Actions Have Consequences … QVC Cancels Hanoi Jane Fonda’s Appearance Over Protests to Her Vietnam War Opposition
Jane Fonda … Cry Me a River.
It’s about time that Hanoi Jane understands that there are consequences to one’s actions.This delusional lib actually thinks that she can be allowed to use her First Amendment rights of freedom of speech to write a book; however, others are not allowed their freedom of speech to protest and denounce the same said book. Jane Fonda actually is whining (link is to Fonda’s liberal blog) over people protesting her book and her shilling it on QVC? Seriously? This from the woman, better known as Hanoi Jane, who sided with the enemy during the Vietnam War. How ironic that the leftist, pinko is now trying to make $’s using the capitalist system of QVC to sell books. Imagine taking pics with the very people who were shooting down American service men in Vietnam and some who this clown thinks she has never done anything against her country.
In 1972 “Hanoi” Jane Fonda applauded an NVA anti-aircraft gun crew during her trip to North Vietnam.
I was to have been on QVC today to introduce my book, “Prime Time,” about aging and the life cycle. The network said they got a lot of calls yesterday criticizing me for my opposition to the Vietnam War and threatening to boycott the show if I was allowed to appear. I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well funded and organized political extremist groups.
Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT! I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us.
Really Jane? Because the picture above of you with the enemy didn’t hurt the United States or the soldiers fighting for this country or those being held in POW camps. You just go on believing that lie. As stated at Jammie Wearing Fool, all one has to do is a simple Google search to find Fonda’s long record of treason.
Let us not forget Dana Pretzer’s SM’s commentary on Jane Fonda from 2007
KUDOS to QVC for actually listening to the people who use their services and who are protesting this traitor.
UPDATE I: Imagine if the outrage still exists against Hanoi Jane after all these years, what is the protest and boycotts going to be like against anyone, business or media outlet that pays Casey Anthony for making blood money off of Caylee Anthony?
