The Administration was notified that he was going public on such and such a date......and they released their own version of events through the Washington Post.

IOW, it was no scoop.  It was damage control.

Snowden's whistleblowing gives us the possibility to roll back a key part of what has amounted to an "executive coup" against the US constitution.

Unfortunately, nothing will ever be 'rolled back'.  That will never happen.  And, after they get through with Snowden, you won't have to worry about whistleblowers anymore.  What will happen is that everyone will start acting more like a 'terrorist' and Any Rand will be right again.

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kinds of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of lawbreakers - and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Rearden, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."
