Time magazine released a cover that featured Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who said he leaked top-secret classified information to the press and fled to Hong Kong. The leaked documents revealed operational details of a global surveillance apparatus run by the NSA and other members of the Five Eyes alliance, along with numerous commercial and international partners.
A subject of controversy, Snowden has been variously called “a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, a traitor, and a patriot”. What is your opinion on Snowden and his actions against the US Government? Do you consider him a hero or a traitor?
