Wil Wheaton declares NSA leaker ‘more patriotic’ than Congress

We don’t know from whom the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald learned about the government’s secret collection of Verizon customers’ phone records, but the Obama administration is interested in finding out. White House aide Ben Rhodes today said that the administration is assessing the damage done to U.S. national security by the leak, but he stopped short of saying the president would order a criminal investigation.

In either case, we might have the makings of another Bradley Manning on our hands. Wil Wheaton today declared the unidentified leaker to have a greater respect for the Constitution than the members of Congress who allowed the spying to go on. We know that President Obama has heard about the government’s surveillance program, as he defended it yesterday, noting that “You can’t have 100 percent security and then have 100 percent privacy” before adding, “there’s a reason these programs are classified.”

Somehow, though, the president escaped mention in Wheaton’s tweet.

Will President Obama get that missing shout-out if he authorizes the FBI and Justice Department to begin a criminal investigation into the leak? An unnamed source told Fox News today that a criminal report has been filed, and not by Congress.
