Is Edward Snowden a traitor or hero? How about neither? How about whistleblower? What if he discovered that the NSA had collected the names and addresses of all the people who owned guns in the country? What do you think the NRA and the right-wing would be saying? They would make Snowden a hero and demand the information be destroyed. Some bureaucrats and politicians would lose their jobs.
What Snowden did expose was that our government was violating the Fourth Amendment. I do not know what a fair solution might be, but it is certainly not trying to kill or imprison this man. I would like to see the Justice Department work something out so that he can return home a free man.
