  • Yes he is

    Breaking the law makes you a criminal, crime makes people criminals and crime is what society imposes, not what ought to be bad but what is considered to be bad whether it is unfair or not.
    Criminals must pay for their actions, not because they deserve it, but because it is how things work. If Edward Snowden happens to be a martyr for a future cause he needs to suffer first martyrdom.By scaping he only shows:
    1) Fear and lack of commitment to the cause
    2)Having knowingly agreed to live under the city's laws, he implicitly subjected himself to the possibility of being accused of crimes by its citizens and judged guilty by its jury. To do otherwise would have caused him to break his "social contract" with the state, and so harm the state, an unprincipled act.
    The full reasoning behind his refusal to flee is the main subject of the Crito.
    If it is never good to do injustice, then certainly it is never good to do injustice in response to injustice. Edward Snowden is a criminal, whether so is the government is a different question and has nothing to do with the status of Mr Snowden.

  • Yes he is

    He broke the law. That's pretty much the end of the debate. It doesn't matter if some other group are also criminals, he is not absolved of crimes by someone else doing something illegal. Anyone who thinks he is not a criminal should take a look at those heart eating Syrian rebels and realize that by their logic, he is not a criminal because the people he is fighting against are bad people.

  • Yes yes yes yes

    Edward Snowden is more then just a criminal he is a traitor to his country he was a CIA Agent Who took an oath "I Edward Joseph Snowden do solemnly swear to support and defend the constitution of the United States Against all enemy's foreign and domestic so help me god" He broke his oath because he Exposed a program designed to fight terrorism. This Man his no hero at all he is a traitor who ran like a coward

  • If he isn't...

    If Snowden did not act in a criminal manner where then, my fellow Americans, do we draw the line and who will draw it? It is quite obvious that HE knew that he had committed a criminal act, why is this even a question? All of the self-righteousness in the universe does not an innocent man make.

  • No Snowden is such a hero

    He risked his life and decides to leave his cosy life for american who aren't even grateful ? Shameful...
    The head of our societies succeeded, our brains are controlled by them we are defending them instead of defending whistleblowers who just want to protect us and show us that wherever we go we're not in security. People who said yes : the fact that it endangered the country with terrorism is false, we've made pacts with ISIS we're selling them arms in exchange of petrol.

  • When the truth becomes treason.

    Our government every last part of it is corrupt. The people of the united States have no say so in anything, but we pay these government people and organizations with our tax dollars. We have let them control every last aspect of our lives and they have enslaved us all. Our government is filled with Globalists and many of them in powerful positions have been working against the America people for the NWO agenda.

  • @ yes section

    YES SECTION,

    You all claim that he is a criminal by definition of breaking a law, thereby breaking a law no matter the scenario, one should go to prison, yes? Then also by this logic, Maybe you should consider the massive law breaking elephant in the room... The organisations that were involved in violating human rights and privacy laws worldwide.

    So by YOUR definition they are all criminals too yes? If you agree with this, then please consider Robin Hood. You may laugh but the principle behind this child's tale is very telling in these circumstances.

    Undoubtedly this transpired knowledge is only the tip of what goes on behind closed doors!

    Please consider the greater good, consider the power distance in this world, whilst supreme leadership remains myopic and bottomless, there can be no positive change.

  • He is a friggin hero

    Heck off nerds i hope yall go fikin heck off ya nerds. I am downloading a virus to all of your software and hardware as you are reading this!!! TOP KEKEKEKEKE KEKE KEKE KKKEEK i hope you enjoy it thank you guys for still reading it, it houkd be installed bi now

  • Did he really commit a crime?

    First off, did he take files from the US government, Yes. However, the story that isn't told is what he actually leaked. THE GOVERNMENT, WAS AND STILL IS, SPYING ON INNOCENT PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS! What he did was for the American people, the government saying he is a criminal is just to get the people to turn against him. Another thing, foreign governments trying to get a hold of him is just showing that other governments spy on their citizens as well.

  • He isnot a criminal

    He is not a criminal duh because of course hes not he is a hero and should be seen as one like damn if you're against snowden you against freedom babe just let him be and Britan you best give him that political asylum cause the government aint treating him right

  • NSA is reading this Forum as well :-)

    Many innovations are disruptive and instigated by creative people; artists, hackers, freethinkers and geniuses. Snowden follows in the footsteps of Luther who had the moral courage to challenge the distorted dogmas and corruptive practices of the Catholic Church by openly challenging them in Germany. Snowden had to the moral courage to challenge a superpower with deeply immoral and criminal practices. If there was a global court of justice United States would be accused of breaking fundamental Human Rights and to pay $1000 to every person or organisation they illegally spied on outside the borders of US. Snowden would be handed a symbolic sentence of $100 (penalty) for stealing datafiles and be given a global passport. It would be up to US to disallow him entry to US territory. This would be a fair justice.

  • When truth becomes treason

    This incident shouldn't be a surprise since the wrongly named Patriot Act was passed. It took Edward Snowden's actions of exposing how severe the surveillance of American's by its own government really is. To the government he's a criminal but in reality his actions were revolutionary in these times. So no he is no criminal in my opinion.
