The U. S. government needs to stop whining to foreign governments about not following the rule of law with respect to Edward Snowden — it just throws into starker relief the practices of an administration which sees the “law” as an inconvenience it can disregard at will. Our spokesmen, like John Kerry, might as well wear red rubber noses and floppy clown shoes when they lecture other governments on the rule of law.

Don’t they realize the world is laughing at them?
