So much for Snowden being a hero...

We can all agree that it is always a good idea to keep an eye on the Government to make sure that they don't encroach on our rights, but this is a dick move, right here.

that sounds like pure speculation to make you think he is a traitor

If the government owned the media, this story probably wouldn't have came out.

If an American government analyst admits in a newspaper that our government has been hacking Chinese servers for years, that does, by definition, make him a traitor. Of course, that could be China's newspaper making that up...

Corporations own the government too Phone Post

Smear campaign to discredit.

Assassination as this point is unlikely due to his high profile.

All he's doing is trying to convince Hong Kong not to extradite him on intense pressure from the US government.

If this man is eventually seen by the masses as a traitor, then the government has succeeded. Then you're really fucked. Phone Post 3.0

Just my opinion but I say guilty. I get the "just a whistle blower" argument though.

To work for those contractors, you need top secret or greater clearance. Most of their employees are former fed with extensive background checks. Phone Post

</blockquote><br />I have passed some strict background checks for logistics jobs that work with the feds and I and some of my co workers grew up with hardcore criminals and drug dealers, those background checks can let in some bad people with clean records, nothing is for certain, I wouldn't contract sensitive NSA shit out.

I've worked on NSA jobs in the past, as well other parts of the IC. They interviewed my coworkers past and present, friends, former roommates, and I had to have a polygraph.

A regular SECRET level clearance is just a simple FBI computer background check. The higher up you go, the more strenuous it becomes.
