    Edward Snowden is a hero: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak

    HANNOVER, Germany: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak made a startling revelation voicing his support for National Security Agency (NSA) contractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden at an interactive session held at Europe's largest technology conference - Cebit 2014 - in Hannover in Germany.

    "He is a hero to me, but he may be a traitor to other people and I understand the reasons for them to think that way. I believe that Snowden believed, like I do, that the US has a right to freedom. He had the guts to and courage to sacrifice his life for a principle," said Wozniak, at an interactive session moderated by Brent Goff, main news anchor for Deutsche Welle here on Thursday.

    Snowden is hiding in Russia as a fugitive from US law and charged with espionage for leaking documents related to the US surveillance.

    Wozniak, a strong believer in freedom and the spirit of the Constitution, felt Snowden should be allowed to return to his country. "He has been vindicated and there have been illegal judgements and the NSA, and by the way, we have other three letter agencies like the CIA and FBI, and they are probably doing similar things. They cover up those loopholes, and they are in violation with our Constitution," he said.

    Wozniak's expressed concerns over the long-drawn process of the judicial system and laws which are inconsistent with the spirit of the Constitution. "A lot of politicians pass law after law that go against the Constitution and in court, when people like Snowden come up, they say that the government has acted according to the law. Ten years later, the Supreme Court says that those laws are unconstitutional. It's a long, long process to get justice," he added.

    I agree with Mr. Wozniak. It is clear that our government is doing many unconstitutional things, and our politicians and courts just tend to ignore them. What Snowden did was necessary and he is a hero for that.

    I don't have heroes.

    But if I did, based on what I know of Snowden, he would probably be one of them.

    Especially when you can run to a country like Russia with its long tradition of freedom of the press, speech, and liberty. And a country that would obviously have no interest in the military secrets Snowden took with him.

    And just which country could he have 'run to' that would have semi-guaranteed his safety?


    As for secrets he may have given to the Russians?

    Where is your link to unbiased factual proof that he gave even ONE military secret to the Russians?

    I don't consider him a hero. But I do admire him for his standing up for what he believes to be right. If I had been in his position I don't know if I would have done the same thing as him, but would like to think I would.

    I would just say Edward Snowden is a great man, and leave it at that.
