Via Pando Daily:
Earlier this week, the New York Times editorial board published a lead article calling for “Edward Snowden, Whistle-Blower” to be offered “a plea bargain or some form of clemency.”
Considering the enormous value of the information he has revealed, and the abuses he has exposed, Mr. Snowden deserves better than a life of permanent exile, fear and flight. He may have committed a crime to do so, but he has done his country a great service.
Snowden’s critics and supporters responded to the proposal pretty much as you’d expect.
