    He is stuck in Russia. He never wanted to stay there to begin with. If my memory serves, I believe his choices for exile were Iceland and Ecuador but the US made sure the door was shut for those choices. A lot easier to make him look like a villain if he is forced to work with Putin.

    No one said any of this is "petty." Point is, you are making it sound like he chose Russia when he was forced to stay.

    I dont think its going to make him look much worse. He will never be allowed back here, certainly.

    Why was he in Russia in the first place? Because he was fleeing HK and prior to that the US, after stealing and releasing state secrets. Frankly where is, is not the issue.

    As stated, he exposed much more than just illegal govt activities, and whats more he didn't even screen the data, he let the press do that.

    In the traditional American scheme of things, do you see the media (journalists) as having a role in keeping the government playing honestly? Is the Fourth Estate really necessary, and what role should it play in our form of government?

    Probably not. But I doubt he would want to come back except to see family. He will probably end up moving to a more democratic nation as he intended once our govt gets the stick out of its butt.

    Secrets that were illegally obtained in the first place. You conservatives are supposed to defend the Constitution, not defend constitutional violations.

    Frankly where is, is not the issue.
    Yet, you and others in the "Snowden Is a Traitor!" camp keep bringing up Russia as if it was his first choice of countries to seek asylum in.
