  1. Snowden isn’t a whistleblower. He’s charged with espionage and leaking classified information. He took an oath swearing that he would keep classified information secure. He broke his word, and apparently always intended to divulge classified information. He is accused of breaking the law of his government, who wants to bring him to trial. He will get a fair trial, before a jury of his peers, and the trial will be publicized world-wide for analysis, criticism, and commentary. The press will be given access to all information that isn’t sensitive or classified. That’s the way our country’s legal system works. We invite the world to observe our legal proceedings through our free press.

    To characterize him as a “whistleblower” obscures the notion that he (allegedly) betrayed his country. If he’s innocent, he’s got nothing to worry about. . .

    • And what about the founders of United States. They were traitors for the english government…. Sometimes, it’s a good way to broke his word and not to think about himself but about public interest.
