Ok, for some odd reason I got it in my head you claimed objectivity, my bad. Yea, I clearly am for the U.S. as this is the land I live in which sustains me. I have a vested interest in making sure that we are the top dog and that the problems that befall weaker nations do not befall mine. Snowden was an asshole who actually thought his was the only nation who pulled that shit. I am pretty sure allies spy on each other as well. You know, the whole trust but verify thing? Unfortunately, we had a dumbass who aired it while our allies clearly had smarter intelligence employees.
