(CNN) - Every new day seems to bring new revelations and reactions to the controversial electronic surveillance programs. Over the weekend we learned that the British electronic intelligence agency tried to monitor delegates during a G-20 summit. We also heard from administration officials, past and present, who tried to assuage Americans worried about privacy.

Here is a summary of the latest developments:

    The Chinese foreign ministry said Monday that suggestions that Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor behind the leaks, may have spied for China were "completeley groundless."
    Then why the heck did he go to Hong Kong? He's a traitor! Find him and prosecute him. We may never know the extent of what damage he's done to our national security until it's too late.

    I thought democrats said warrentless wire tapping was bad and they would get rid of it once they were voted into office back in 2008? Guess that got too power hungary to keep their promises when they had a majority of both houses.

    Anyone who thinks this Snowden kid is a hero needs to look at his latest "revelations". He's been talking about spying at the G20 summit four years ago. He's talking about spying by the British, which he apparently learned about through his computer hacking work.

    He's not a hero. He's not out to protect your rights. He's out to make a name for himself and nothing more.
