A new Reuters poll [Wednesday 6/13] says more Americans see NSA leaker Edward Snowden as a patriot than as a traitor, though 36% of those surveyed said they didn't know.

Reuters and the AP are claiming that the majority of American's don't want to see him punished.

He is NOT a traitor. He exposed another ill conceived plot by the U.S. govt against U.S. citizens.

Maybe not a patriot, but I applaud his courage.

Wouldn't want to be him, but not a traitor. He only identified the problem, didn't provide the details.

The Obama administration is removing most of our rights as U.S. citizens. I'm worried about the future.

Don't sign up for a job that relies on secrecy and confidentiality to run-away once you violated that contract. If he didn't want the occupation from the start he should have never signed, I have no compassion for him.

He didn't work for the US government directly, he was a subcontractor, so he is NOT a traitor.
The traitors are the one who allowed spying on our phones and computers.
The traitors are the government people that give all our secrets to outside subcontractors.

We subcontract spy work, we subcontract guarding our embassies, maybe we should just subcontract the job of the President of the United States??

It's civil disobedience. I believe he was motivated to right a wrong. The administration is erasing our privileges guaranteed by the Constitution, and he was concerned enough to expose this travesty.
