Focus of leak investigation should turn back toward government

To the editor,
In an article in the Washington Post regarding NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden the writer wrote: "several officials said the CIA will now undoubtedly begin reviewing the process by which Snowden may have been hired, seeking to determine whether there were any missed signs that he might one day betray national secrets."
I suggest that rather there should be an examination of the federal governments policies, judgements and usurpation of constitutional authority. For what the more pertinent question seems to be is: is the United States government honorable as to inspire loyalty beyond it's ability to persecute, imprison or kill its citizens. For there are those "who love not there lives unto death."
