    Everyone has their mind already made up about him. Mine is that what he did was a crime. He took an oath. It was not up to him to decide to release classified information and he is a traitor. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.

    What hypocrite.

    His big thing is to “expose” government corruption, yet he’s totally fine with seeking asylum in some of the most corrupt countries in the world!!

    Wuf, goodwin’s already in here.

    Snowden, you still have a ton of work to do so resting on your laurels is the wrong thing to do. Being the hero always requires work, you don’t get to quit.

    He’s a great man.

    While it’s plainly unconstitutional, I have a hard time faulting the NSA for vacuuming up everything, given that Facebook and Google are already doing similar things, on a somewhat smaller scale.

    The problem is that users need to change our behavior. We need to favor software versus services, open-source versus closed, and distributed versus centralized.

    There will always be spying, but it shouldn’t be a bulk operation.

  5. Rowan says

    Snowden does not realise that whether gay or black, there are people like Andrew and Tim; who do not care or want to know what the government gets up to because they don’t care.

    Snowden people don’t want choices, they want to be told what to do. The end.

  6. RonCharles says

    Edward Snowden’s mission is hardly accomplished yet. When terrorists are able to use the information he has revealed about the operation of Western intelligence services to successfully avoid detection and launch an attack in which innocent Westerners die, then, his mission will be accomplished.

  7. David From Canada says

    “I already won.” says Snowden. If hiding from the rest of the world in barbaric Russia, having a warrant out for your arrest, and looking think and haggard is the winner, I sure as hell would hate to see the loser!

  8. says

    You basically told us something everyone already knew, changed nothing, ran like a b*tch (even Chelsea Manning stayed took and took her punishment), and now live in a country that makes the NSA’s surveillance look like amateurs. Oh yeah, buddy – a winnar is you!

  9. Gr8guyca says

    That he has opened up a national debate about the limits of data mining – and that a court has validated his findings – is reason enough to view Snowden as a patriot, not a traitor. ( I just noticed the “patriot” is almost an anagram of “traitor.”)
