How does Edward Snowden answer about being called a traitor?

"If I defected at all, I defected from the government to the people."


From what I understand the majority of Americans polled believe he deserves clemency.
The short answer ... the jury is still out.

NBC's Brian Williams interviews Snowden in his first American television interview aired last evening.

On issues of the US govt, or any govt spying on it's own citizens without a warrant, domestic civil liberty issues etc, there may be some merit to him speaking out.

But Snowden went much further than that, he also gave out other intel info and some of it on US allies and/or how they work with the US. As only one example, Snowden gave out info on how my country's intelligence services helped the US on 20 covert ops overseas.

Because of Snowden, some foreigners know more about how US intelligence works than their own country and that's saying something.

He's no hero in my books.
