    •  ok (0+ / 0-)

      from now on I will call Snowden an alleged international thief who is accused of stealing unknown amounts of classified information that could potentially harm the US's ability to collect intelligence from around the world and who is accused of giving it to at least 3 foreign governments and one reporter and allegedly said he would release the raw data if he was ever arrested and put on trial.

      enough legal jargon for you?

        •  but since he's never (0+ / 0-)

          going to come back to the US, we'll never get to remove the jargon.

          Odds are he's going to keep giving interviews to GG, blasting the US for wanting to try him for the alledged crimes.

          The NSA programs and his criminality are two different issues in my mind. Good for him for bringing it to light, but it doesn't mean he should be absolved of any crimes he may have committed in doing so. His defense of, so what if i stole, I did it for a good reason, focus on that instead, is not exactly sound legally.
