Snowden what are your thoughts?

I was reading some articles about the whole situation and I just wanted to know what you guys think about it? What outcome do you want to happen and what outcome do you think will happen. What side are you on, he's a traitor or national hero?

My two pennies worth here: While in the Navy I worked in the top secret dept and have also been inside of NSA, those guys do a great job. I personally believe this guy should be brought to justice for the secrets he has exposed. We fight a war every day and it's a different war than the US is use to. The people who want to attack us don't wear uniform but truly do hate Americans and our way of life. Without NSA I would be willing to bet the US would have been hit with another tragic act.

He DID expose an ugly truth about the American Government. Most of us know "big brother" was watching, anyway. I suppose I don't have any issues with it because I have nothing to hide or am doing anything criminal... so if the NSA, CIA, or any other alphabet wants to read my posts or e-mails or watch my porn, go ahead.... as long as it truly is helping our government defend and protect our country. Spying on other countries is dangerous for foreign relations... but china has been doing this to us for years so I guess it is an evil all "super powers" do.

What I DO have a problem with is IF Snowden intentionally or unintentionally shared US defense secrets with other countries. While our government should be more transparent and disclose to the public that they can and do record citizens lives, the real issue is what other countries have learned about us.

The way i see it is like you i have nothing to hide i really dont care if they read things, what i dont like is that they deny they do it. So what other civil liberties are they violating without telling us. As for Snowden, letting everyone know whats going on without our knowledge is great but the way he went about doing it probably wasnt the best.

What the last poster said....
This POTUS said TRANSPARENCY and is one of the least transparent. Personally, with what's happening with the IRS, Benghazi, and now this...we should all be preparing....

I know somethings need to be kept secret but this is one of the least transparent potus we have ever had. Look at the health care bs bill, all done behind closed doors. Oh, the Benghazi things was a total circus.

He is a traitor. He swore to keep his yap shut and do his job. But to me the truely sad thing is showing how little pull the president has with the world. If this stuff would of happened with anyother president this chump would already be behind american bars.

I agree he is a traitor. I read a story on aol or somewhere where this dirtbag wrote something like any giving up secrets should be shot. He had a big change of heart I reckon. Also like you said, the potus has no nads what so ever, we are a joke no a days in the worlds eyes.
