    Aren't many asserting that Snowden attempted to do just that? Or do they think that it is OK because, as Obama puts it, it is the law of the land?

    I think he just wanted money from the Russians and Chinese, but let's assume he did: why not continue what he started?

    Because I don't want a Russian or Chinese vacation, incarceration or a dirt nap.

    Now that some time has passed, and we have had a chance to view some of the ramifications of his actions, and how the government has reacted, how do you view Edward Snowden today?

    Hero? Traitor? Somewhere in between?

    Does your view of him today vary from your initial view after he first released documents?
    He is as much of a traitor as they come. I hope Obama drones his ***.

    whatever happened to the people checking the power of the government? Snowden checked the power of the government and got in trouble for it, pathetic.
