    Doing what Snowden did was one thing and if he hadn't run off to China, Russia, perhaps Cuba, and God knows where else, my opinion of him ( not what he did ) would be a lot different.

    Then the US government are criminals. I'm pretty sure that these surveillance programs violate many different kinds of constitutional and human right standards. If not, the system is seriously ****ed up and it's high time to finally make laws that prevent the government from grotesquely spitting into the face of Western values.

    Snowden is a hero fighting against a government that grossly oversteps its competence in an authoritarian fashion (and no, I don't think Obama is any more to blame than the Presidents in office before him).

    Snowden is not making a good case for himself based on the company he is keeping. Supposedly he is in Moscow preparing to fly to Ecuador, which is coincidently where Julian assange of wikileaks is hiding out.

    He wouldn't go to Gitmo and he's so high profile they wouldn't torture him here.

    Well all they'd do is waterboard him. According to some, that's not torture.

    I'm not sure about Snowden. On some level he's both and on some level he's neither.

    Water boarding is torture.

    We are as corrupt as the old Soviet Union.

    We are accepting odd things in this land of liberty.

    Washington was a criminal and traitor who forced people to fight. He is a hero.

    Snowden blew the whistle on government tyranny and people are all put him in prison.

    If wanted to stand on principle he could have just released the information while he was still in America. Doing so in another country may protect him in the short term, but it begs the question of who else did snowden release the information to.
