Daily Beast, by Michael Moynihan Posted By: PageTurner- Mon, 08 50 2013 07:50:09 GMT I know, I know. We aren't supposed to pay attention to Edward Snowden, the NSA leaker doing an uncanny Sir Alfred Mehran impression at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport. It's the drip, drip, drip of purloined documents that counts. But a story this big, this consequential, needs a dramatis personae of dramatic people. So let's offer Snowden a brief respite from the spotlight, pretend his motives are either pure or of little consequence, and instead turn our gaze toward those grandstanding politicians and activists demanding that our hero be left alone and all attention refocused on them.
