ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I agree wholeheartedly with Robert Knight that President Obama should not pardon Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning or Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl (“Pardon us: Bergdahl, Snowden push for clemency,” Web, Dec. 11). And although I think Edward Snowden’s exposure of what were clear violations of the Fourth Amendment was a positive, on balance I agree that Mr. Snowden violated national security and therefore should not be pardoned.

However, Mr. Knight errs in claiming that it was in Roe v. Wade that the Supreme Court “magically unveiled” those “‘penumbras’ and ‘emanations.’” It was in Griswold v. Connecticut that that nonsensical logic first magically appeared.
