The newspaper says "Have you seen this man?" because he's wanted by the US government for spilling the beans on the whole NSA thing. The guy holding the newspaper is the same one on the newspaper - the guy everyone wants.

That guy who blew the cover on this whole thing... everyone is calling him a ******* patriot and ****. This guy is not a patriot, he's a terrible person. He's a ******* asshole and idiot. The government was just trying to keep us safe but this guy ruined it and now everyone is over reacting to what the government did. I'm sorry that i'm not paranoid and think the world is out to get me... ******* nutcases. Calm down and get over yourself, you're not that important that they'd waste their time spying on you. This was supposed to protect us from terrorists and other things. If you have nothing to hide then there's no issue. I hope this guy is caught and thrown in prison for being a god damn traitor.

Traitor? For doing what? Telling people the government is trying to watch everything you do? And I'm not paranoid or think the world is out to get me either, I just want my privacy. I don't need someone to be watching everything I do. And if a government wants to keep it's people safe, then it would do more and better things than just spying on them for the possibility that they are a terrorist.

I somewhat agree that the government isn't out to get us and all, but a little healthy paranoia isn't a bad thing at all. Keep in mind that there have been corrupt governments throughout history, so saying that you have full trust in the government just as dumb as thinking they are out to get you. As for Snowden being a patriot or not, I don't really care. I don't think he is a hero but I also don't think he is a criminal.

TL;DR: don't act like the government is out to get you all the time but at the same time, don't act like they are perfect and are acting for your well being all the time

They have the authority to spy on any internet traffic that passes through or is hosted in the USA. The includes anything Americans do as well as most of the stuff that Canadians do, among other countries. And the "terrorists" either already knew about it, or they're not able to take advantage of it. The kind of cyber terrorists that feed on this information would have noticed it long ago.

Well at least they aren't all-out spying on the entire internet. Even as I don't really have anything to hide (The most productive things I do on the internet is talk to friends and play video games) I still like to do so privately. for example, I can only imagine some 16-year-old intern jacking it to my conversations to my now-ex.

Thanks for the article, but let's approach it with the appropriate amount of skepticism. After all, this is the guy whose job/reputation is on the line.

To him, I'd say 'Details of the plots or GTFO'... and we're still a-waitin' for those details...

...but let me guess, they won't be able to divulge the details of any case because 'it may damage the integrity of other operations currently in progress'.

It all sounds like they've got the whole country wound up into a frenzy of jumping at shadows and believing in boogeyman **** to me. inb4 9/11: I'll discuss that if you really want, but be prepared to go way down the rabbit hole.

It's good to approach everything with some degree of skepticism, which is why I look into the date of your article. While yes his job is on the line, there is a grain of truth in it. "If a random citizen can know the details of their plans, what's to stop someone who knows what they're doing from using that against us in the future?" is probably their thinking.

The maximum penalty for the three things he is charged with is 30 years. That is each thing he is charged with has a maximum penalty of 10 years. It is very likely that considering the nature of his crime (and crime it was regardless of the moral dilemma) he would probably not get the maximum sentence and would likely be convicted of all three but with the sentences all served at the same time instead of consecutively.

Snowden is charged with three federal crimes: theft of government property, unauthorized communication of national defense information, and willful communication of classified communications information with an unauthorized party. Treason is a very specific thing as astafarianp pointed out. The media is still calling what he did treason but they are doing so because they are the media and they are paid to be hyperbolic and try to make every story sensational not because they are correct.

Tecnically according to the constitution treason is insanely hard to commit. It only occurs when the following conditions are met "shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort" Article 3, section 3 of the constitution. Basically you can only commit treason when the country is in a DECLARED war with whoever the person was giving aid to.

It's hard to say that what he did is right, given we have no idea WHY he gave this information.
And, if I remember correctly, he went to both China and Russia. The countries that likely pose the biggest threats to the USA.
It's possible he had more information to give these governments, and wanted to cause unrest before he gave it over.

I'm not saying he's a bad person, I'm just saying it's hard to say he's really good.

He gave the information away because he believed (correctly) that the American government was illegally and immorally breaching its citizens personal liberties.

Those countries would be the best places to seek temporary asylum I imagine. I don't know if he sold them any information, but if he had to leave, he could reside there for a short time, while the government lets him in hopes he might reveal something to them, intentionally or not.

It doesn't seem like a bad idea to me at least, especially considering I've heard that he has been staying in areas that are technically international (Hong Kong which is complicated with China, Russian international airport areas), so no government has a ton of pull over his actions at those particular times

Assuming he isn't ousting any agents or giving foreign nation information that could potentially undermine our security or turn alliances against us; then yes, he did the right thing.

The fact is, we don't know what information he has or what he's doing with it. Saying someone is amazing without knowing the full scope or consequences of their actions is... iffy.

If America tries Snowden for treason I'm pretty sure she'll lose all her "Allies" anyway.

The World thinks America is a land where your personal liberties are sold to the highest bidder, and that's not going to improve until you remove your Federal Reserve and remove the corporations from the government.

But the same can be said about us over here in England, I mean, the dirty Rothschilds own our own Bank of England for **** sake. But at least our world standing is better.

It's not a big surprise, money is power.
Completely removing the fed, or some big corps won't solve the problem. It may sound bizzare, but the idea of removing the concept of money might solve many things.

You can't remove money. Money is just a standardized method of trade. Unless you tell everyone in the USA they aren't allowed to trade with anyone else, money will exist in one form or another.

Individual greed is what drives Capitalism.

I totally agree.
Replace the incentive of personal gain (i.e. monetary gain) with the incentive of making your state a better place for all and I'm confident that individualism and greed will be restricted.

So what? The information he released is the truth, regardless of the consequences the US is responsible. That's like blaming a detective for a families grief when he arrests the murderer.

You mean he sells massive amounts of government information to China and Russia, who then takes him in since he's their bro now, then releases parts of it to the public as well before running off to hide behind the guise of a good Samaritan.

Really though, both ideas are plausible enough. If he really was a good guy with nothing to hide, he could have just stayed in the U.S. and had a TON more support domestically and world-wide. If he dies or is jailed, he would be a martyr. He would be legendary, then.

This prick didn't tell us anything we wouldn't have known if people actually paid attention to real politics instead of always listening to sensationalist garbage from 24 hour 'news' networks. What was going on at the NSA was approved by congress, and 100% legal. Nothing was hidden from anyone, it's all there in black and white.

So no, this ****** isn't a hero, he's a traitor. Who the **** is he to decide what's best for the entire country? Classified information is classified in the interest of national security, and by divulging any of it, he has hurt this country. I only hope he is assassinated before he can do any more damage.

The fine details that didn't matter to us were the parts that were classified. Nobody seemed to notice what he said from that perspective. Well, nobody but China and Russia.

I'm not a troll. I work as a government contractor and I consider the protection of sensitive information to be both an honor and a great responsibility to my fellow American. That's why seeing this POS decide on his own that giving away classified information was a good idea makes me so angry.

So you KNOW for a fact that our government is only doing 'good things' for us?

No, you don't. Not 'for a fact'

Therefore, the fundamental basis of your argument "Classified information is classified in the interest of national security" is unfounded.

Also, please indicate how he had "hurt this country [by divulging information]".
> You can't, because the FBI/CIA haven't even indicated one genuine terrorist plot that had been thwarted with Dragnet Surveillance.
> He merely divulged THE FACT THAT the gov't is spying on all U.S. citizens in a report to The Guardian, an UK newspaper. He didn't disclose spying data itself.

Grow up. This Snowden thing has been hyped up by the media, but regardless, you're a fool if you think that Gov't Surveillance is ever a good thing.

The issue to me isn't about the spying. It's about one man who thought he knew better than the entire group of NSA workers whose only job is to keep the American people safe. As a government contractor myself, I put so much mental energy into making sure I follow all the rules with regards to sensitive information. It makes my blood boil to hear that someone entrusted with the same responsibility as me single-handedly threw away the work of numerous good Americans dedicated to protecting that sensitive information.

The government classifies certain things because it would put the U.S. at a disadvantage if another country got a hold of said information or intelligence.

The real reason for the official secrecy, in most instances, is not to keep the opposition from knowing whats going on; the enemy usually does knows. The basic reason for governmental secrecy is to keep you, the American public, from knowing - for you too are considered the opossition, the enemy.

I really don't see the problem, we know the government has been monitoring us for YEARS. Since before the inception of the internet it was suspected that they spied on us. Whatever, i remain a anonymous amongst three million other Americans. Sure what he did is morally responsible, but what he found we kinda already suspected to be true.

TLDR; we kinda suspected the government spied on us, whatever.
