Context. It's completely out of context. People that turn tail and blow cover are usually self-serving ___holes. It's a fact of life.
Whether or not people think he is a hero, a traitor, is besides the point. For all we know his behaviour was only to secure himself in positions so he
could release the information to the public. On the flip side, he was a lazy puke who never wanted to actually put effort in so once he alienated
himself enough from the people around him, he fled, dropped a bomb on the public while simultaneously handing over sensitive info to Russia and China.
Option 3 would be he was groomed for the part and was paid to do this whole thing, and the information released public and overseas was sanitized in
an effort to make it seem like all the State operations were now in the open (while they can continue the good stuff behind closed doors.)
In any case, it boils down to context. We really know absolutely nothing about him and the case in general. What people should focus on is the
information dump and not the messenger. The messenger is a distraction.
Some people will call him a traitor.
Some people will call him a hero.
Some people don't care about Snowden any more than they do a desperate housewife of reality TV.
