What's There to "Return?"

It seems like US Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper never tires of making himself look like an idiot in public. Now he's calling on whistleblower Edward Snowden to "return" information Snowden collected and shared with journalists, pertaining to the illegal and unconstitutional surveillance operations Clapper oversees.

There's nothing to "return," unless Clapper and Co. have been lying to us yet again. Snowden didn't "take" or "steal" the information, he copied it. Clapper and Co. still have it. It's just that the rest of us -- you know, the people who supposedly employ Clapper and Co. -- now have some of it too. Heaven forfend that some bureaucrat's bosses know what he's doing, right?
