In the March 15 Other View column It’s time to let Snowden go, Lorelei Kelly makes a compelling case for the oversight of and changes to NSA monitoring. However, Snowden should not be let go.
He crossed over from whistle-blowing reformist to traitor as soon as he turned over a computer’s worth of classified material to the Chinese and Russians. There’s no whitewashing that deed. No amount of whistle-blowing justifies that move.
I hope that he will finish his life in Russia — I’ve been there, it’s no picnic — and will be judged in this country as the pariah that he is. The KGB is welcome to him.
