3. "Traitor" is maybe too strong a word for Snowden.

 

I don't think we have a single word for a confused, misguided fool who ends up cooperating with actual dictatorships out of some mixture of concern for his own country and apparent personal problems--though the Russians used to use the term "useful idiot."

This editorial is damage control on the latest foolish/bizarre move by this Snowden person. If you look at bottom of the article, this piece was provided by the "Freedom of the Press Foundation". What's that, you ask? Why, Glenn Greenwald's organization. What a surprise.
