Ed Snowden is a Hero

I just saw this article and interview of Edward Snowden, the whistleblower who leaked information about NSA activities.

It seems to me that he has exercised his personal judgment about something that he (along with many, many, others) thinks is wrong in a way that would expose what the public should know and would not endanger individuals. That is patriotism. It’s much more honorable than just following orders.

If the president really believes in transparency, as he has always claimed, he will issue a pardon for Edward Snowden.

Let’s see if he does.
