Is Snowden a hero or a traitor?

Say what you want, but all this guy did was expose government tyranny. I don't think he put anyone in danger but the politicians.

I agree H&A.  If they weren't doing anything wrong, he wouldn't have had anything to say.

Government will stop at nothing to protect itself. A government with zero qualms about violating your rights is traitorous. Nothing but a gang of criminals. Snowden is not a hero, but he's an icon with guts.

Did he give information to the Russians or Chinese? If so was it before or after he exposed the scope of the NSA snooping?

Not enough known and accurate information available for me to pass judgment.

I still would like to hear/read more about exactly what information he leaked/whistleblowed than about  him as a person.   I don't  think information about his girlfriend, what he is doing at an airport, what high school he went to, etc...is as important as the information he had that  started this whole thing.

So much attention is being put on the messenger compared to the message.
