Snowden: Traitor Or Hero?
Eight years ago, Edward Snowden revealed government secrets, telling the world that America illegally spies on Americans, and most everyone else on the planet. Some now call Snowden a traitor, others say he is a hero.
Snowden, who copied and leaked highly classified information from the National Security Agency, has been exiled in Moscow since 2013. He says that while government spymasters told Congress and the public that the NSA did not spy on Americans, he worked on the inside and could see the truth. “I saw everything. We were capturing everything that your family is doing online, that your friends are doing online,” he says. “This became such a concern to me, that I was willing to risk a great deal to tell people.”
So which one is he–traitor or hero? Investigative journalist John Stossel sat down with Snowden to discuss the circumstances.ARVE Error: need id and provider
