This sums up my feelings:



A lot of people have made an interesting comparison to Bradley Manning, but I think there is a huge difference. Snowden, at least to my knowledge, simply disclosed a program, that at best is unethical and at worst is a gross violation of the Consitutional right to privacy. At worst, Snowden indirectly put the population at risk because NSA may lose one of their tools for countering terrorist threats. Manning on the other hand, sent out actual documents that put lives directly in danger, everyone from his fellow soldiers to people that have helped the US. That is a HUGE difference IMO.
