✐ Freedom of speech for US citizens?

I found this video on YouTube, it's a press conference with a State Department spokeswoman, the journalists are trying very hard to get an answer out of her. The question is; "Does Edward Snowden have the right to freedom of speech?"
"Tensions are high as NSA leaker Edward Snowden officially submitted application for temporary asylum in Russia on Tuesday. After Russian and international human rights advocates and lawyers met with Snowden at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport on Friday, the US said it was disappointed in Russia for considering the whistleblowers asylum. During a daily press briefing State Department spokeswoman, Jen Psaki was given a thorough grilling on the Snowden affair by journalists, including AP's Matthew Lee and CNN's Elise Labott and was left lost for words at almost every turn."

"U.S. House of Representatives voted down a proposal to stop the NSA program that systematically collecting telephone records of millions of Americans. The distribution of votes in the House was 205 in favor, while 217 voters were opposed."

So the NSA can continue with it's spying on everyone, regardless if they're terrorists or not. The American dream have become the American nightmare.
