What to make of whistleblower/traitor Edward Snowden, who has moved from Hong Kong (under the thumb of semi-communist China) to the "democracy" of Russia under autocrat/Super Bowl ring thief Putin?

The young man is not helping his case by cozying up to America's adversaries, nations who jail (or kill) political dissidents.

Next stop North Korea? Iran? I'm sure U.S. doesn't have an extradition treaty with them.

I guess I fall on the anti-Snowden side because I am convinced he had alternatives other than revealing some of the finer points of the U.S. spy program. (As if the Chinese and Russians don't play the same game.)
