Letter to the Editor

Whistle blower Edward Snowden who revealed information about the illegal Bush/Obama NSA spying program is a national hero and should be pardoned. Yes – what he did was illegal. But if he didn’t act that too would have been illegal. The NSA had been lying to Congress about what it was doing and that it was illegally spying on every single person in America. We only know that because of Snowden.

Since Snowden’s revelation Congress changed several laws in order to help put a stop to the conduct that Snowden revealed. This to me indicates that Snowden did America a national service and that his actions to stop illegal government spying was justified. I therefore join in the call to pardon Edward Snowden.
