    Good for him. It's nice to see the anti-establishment get the credit they deserve. Checks and balances are necessary, however unorthodox they may seem at times.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Good for Snowden. Unfortenately it means squat. The Nobel Peace Prize has been a joke for a couple of decades.

Can't believe it. Even Watergate was broke by keeping the primary safe. Has the world dumbed down.
    Are you all worried your illegal activity was found out with illegal means? Means we all skate, we all get an out of jail free card for our activities not related to terrorism.

    I find it hilarious people who do talk in the clear are upset they were cheap and talked in the clear - there are secure means to talk, and I guess geeks are the only ones who do it.

    I used secure com before, why are all you Snowden fans unable to stay secure? We can't stop listening, we will not stop listening, we have been doing it for a long time. All they needed was warrants, or you gave permission and never knew it - in the military you calls are what?

    Russians are now able to study Snowden's stuff and see if they are doing all the stuff we are. Snowden is a traitor, any good he does is offset by the waking up the lazy terrorists to be secure, and others now buying the secure com stuff from the companies I bought stock in the day Snowden when stupid on the US. Good job Snowden, you get an award for making my stocks jump. Give him the Nobel, more advertising for my stocks, and my profits in 2014, the year of the secure communication buying spree inspired by a failed nut; wait, did Snowden and his dad buy up the stock too?

    Good luck Snowden, you sure are stupid - Cold?
    If you really think that secure.com is safe from government intrusion you are sadly mistaken. Particularly for the things that the NSA was exposed for.

    Why do I get the feeling if an alien came down and used a weapon to evaporate the United States, that alien would be nominated for a Nobel Prize?

    Not secure.com, secure communications. Encryption, why talk in the clear. I said invest in companies which supply secure communications. Buy stock, cash in on the trader Snowden...
    I'm talking secure data crypto, upgrade your cryptographic systems. Want a quote?

    Why spy on possible terror suspects? We can just sit around and wait for a, "Surprise". Everyone loves surprises. Maybe Snowden was set up to shock everyone to help his company sell more secure data crypto, and upgrades to cryptographic systems. His company is big...

    [BS]Someone like Snowden, who appears to be a Conspiracy Theorist first class with a hero complex, would be easy to set up. You talk him up how the NSA is doing all this and that, then you make up projects so silly he thinks they are real, copies them, runs away to save the world... (sorry, a fantasy conspiracy theory about the first up to the board, and now is in Russia, cold) [/BS]

    "first up to the board" - refers to the first person in the class to jump up, take the board, show leadership, the type-A leader. NOT, http://first2board.com/

    What the heck is secure.com? Nothing is secure when people are involved; evidence? Snowden.
    Exposed for? Who did not know the NSA has been doing this for a long time? This is not news. Snowden is the news, leaking secrets to others is the news, not the fact the NSA spies. Not news.

    While true that the Nobel Prize committee might be elevated beyond the joke that it currently is (needs to be really), awarding it to Snowden for 'more stable and peaceful world order' I hardly think that this applies.

    In the mean time, it's still an ideologically driven joke, given the awards to Gore and Obama. Should it be award to Snowden, this will not change it's standing.

    I am going to stick my neck out here and say that Mr. Snowden will never get the Nobel Peace Prize.
