You should read his book. I'd love to see if peoples opinions changed on him after reading about it in his own words.
I actually read it not all that long ago, was a pretty decent read to see how some things develop from that point of view. I can't say I agree any more or less with the decisions he made after reading it, but in some cases I did better understand why. Will never agree with the patriot act for example but I do understand the why a little better now having read his book.
