Casey James Fury simply didn't want to be at work, and in the process cost the Navy nearly a half-billion dollars and one nuclear attack submarine. Fury admitted to setting fire to the USS Miami, a nuclear sub, in May 2012 while it was in dry dock. He was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison in March. Meanwhile, federal prosecutors have initially charged Edward Snowden with three counts -- one for each of three leaked documents -- each of which carries a minimum prison sentence 10, and as much as 20 years. They have said that more charges, one count for each document, are likely to be forthcoming.

And there you have it: this Administration gives a real traitor a minimum sentence for real treason, and is now trying to brand a real patriot as a "defector" in an effort to lock him up for life. Seems legit.

By the way, Snowden was nominated today for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Sabotage a few Navy ships or submarines: 10 - 20 years
Prove that the government is not entirely honest: Life or assassination.

Only a nation as evil as Nazi Germany or Stalinist Russia are this extreme.

Snowdens only crime is exposing a cyber security depo and violating a discloser agreement, what the nsa does not realise is that in doing this snowden did them a favor, by epoising peole who whould have exposed far worst secreates "I.E. maning" if it were up to me snowden would have goten ten years to life and a nomination for the presadental metal of freedom, and maning would be Exicuted, just like the jolly joker on this poster should have been.

If it was me, I would have simply given Bradley/Chelsea Manning a pay cut and a suspension of duty for a few months. As for Snowden, he wouldn't be charged at all. As for Fury,  would have him sent to Death Row.

I still can't believe he got the minimum for this crime, never mind the danger he risked to others by setting fire to a nuclear submarine no less, he could have contaminated that who harbor at the least, along with anyone working in or around it.

I find extremely little to disagree with you on, and this is no different.  Keep it up, brotha!

That's how "Law" works these days. Everything is corrupted, and there's nothing people can actually do about this. We may protest, we may raise awareness but in the end will not be enough. It never was and never will. It's like trying to chip a dragons toe, while we should be aiming at the head.

I guess Fury's case required less paperwork.

I just found out about this, but this smells to high heavens like a deliberate act or sabotage. Do you understand how many consecutive miracles had to occur for that to happen?

If you're referring to the torching of the USS Miami, of course it was sabotage.  The guy who did committed an act of treason.  I just can't get over the fact that the Feds are trying to lock up Ed Snowden for life, and that the jerk in Connecticut will probably be out in 6 years, with good behavior, unless there's something in the verdict of which I am unaware.
