Column: Spy revelations are good and bad news for business
Thank goodness that chatterbox Edward Snowden can’t shut up.
Even while holed up in an airport terminal in Moscow, desperately seeking a new home that won’t extradite him, the former National Security Agency contractor keeps blabbing about massive worldwide government snooping on Internet and telephone communications.
The good part is that he has finally gotten around to mentioning that everybody else is as guilty of snooping as the United States—including, most definitely, some of the nations whose leaders have publicly criticized America.
That ought to blunt some of the worries about the impact of his spying revelations on U.S. business. Or will it?
