Years ago, Edward Snowden leaked over a million classified government files, that revealed that the government was illegally and intentionally spying on its citizens. Was Snowden a hero or traitor for revealing this?
Bit of both
Traitor for stealing.
Hero for telling.
A Hero AND HE WAS RIGHT
A Hero would have done what the recent CIA whistleblower did. A Traitor would illegally exfiltrate a massive amount of classified data and flee the Country to seek asylum with our enemies.
