The Oath Keepers on Edward Snowden

And this is also really about the absurd claim that the U.S. is a battlefield and the Fourth Amendment doesn't apply to the President's "surveillance of the battlefield." That was the claim of neocon, government-supremacist Bush lawyers, like John Yoo, and that idea that the Bill of Rights is trumped by Executive war powers has also been the consistent claim of Obama lawyers such as Harold Koh, justifying even the targeted killing of Americans.

That statement, if authentic is a good start.

It is, however, sad that action had to be taken by a low level civilian contractor rather than by a commissioned or non-commissioned officer who would have been in a position to do real political damage to the Chekists.

I still await some documentation of an Oath Keeper actually doing something concrete.
