I'm not surprised. When did any Government- on ethical or legal grounds- refuse to use the powers available to it? The American- and British- governments thought they could get away with rifling through our private correspondence so they did. Governments- all governments- are paranoid and amoral.

If America were the Frank Capra movie it likes to think it is the whistle-blower would be riding in a motorcade through showers of ticker-tape. As it is, he's seeking political asylum in Hong Kong.
