imo, the only thing more un-American than Snowdon's release of NSA secrets would be calling him a un-American for doing so.

Still living in the fantastic world, hmm? Well, if he did it just for people, we should all admire him. And if he got something more from it, even then we should be grateful.

Giving out secret info is a treason in law, but what your NSA do is a crime against people.

"If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so."

The same concept applies.

The US should leave Snowdon alone. He uncovered the NSA's attack on europe, the united nations and of peoples freedom of course, all in the name of the Patriot Act which Bush had initialized. Dear Americans... No, fellow members of the human race: Fight the injust! Peace through peaceful revolution!

The entire point, aside revealing a program we've known about for a looong god damn time already, was how the US government is no more a saint than any other global power.

The US is a ****.

We don't have to be. Look at the Clinton administration. Little monitoring, didn't get involved in other nation's affairs (unless absolutely necessary). Not to mention some of the lowest crime rates, teen pregnancies, and largest economic growth in US history.

Slow news day on this site. This shouldn't even be debated, it's common sense he did the right thing.

Or as Ron Paul said:

"My understanding is that espionage means giving secret or classified information to the enemy. Since Snowden shared information with the American people, his indictment for espionage could reveal (or confirm) that the US Government views you and me as the enemy."

And I much as I heard from Ron Paul, he basically means the Obama Administration and therefor the democrates. He is forgetting that the republicans are doing are very good job in the same kind of **** as well.

Ron Paul has spoken out against the Republican party just as much as he has the Democrats..

I remember the daily show or Colbert report satiring how like 20 journalists went on the plane they thought Snowden was on and got trapped in there only to find out he wasn't there and they took like a thousand pictures of the seat he was suppose to be on that he wasn't on. It was hilarious!

Putin's not giving a **** about this whole thing. At least the man has some balls to have an actual opinion unlike another global power's "leader" or buttplug in chief.

I think some part of Putin admires Snowden but he wants to keep relations with the U.S. in good shape so he's trying his best to stay out of it. He also doesn't want anyone to get the idea that Snowden is a spy for Russia.

Well, I think he is a spy for humanity. A hero sort of.

It is. I assure you the US is not the only nation doing this. Plenty (oc not all) of other countries in the east are doing this as well, they just haven't had any Snowdons yet. Hopefully they will.

You're opinion is meaningless. It's impossible to get the American people mad enough to fight injustice, and our corporate owners made sure of that by providing so much fat food and sugar and things to make us happy enough to not give a **** about anything. People only get mad about how much money gas costs but don't give a **** how it is so inexpensive in the first place.

Did he do the right thing? Is he a narcissist? Is he a terrorist?

I'd say he did the right thing. I'm sure if there were a more anonymous way he could have done it, he would have. The guy loves his country, and he'd give it up to save it. I couldn't argue against that.
