this man to me is a gimick, a shenanighan and NOT what I would dub an American Patriot.
Then it's fortunate for the rest of us that history will make these distinctions and not you.

(Reuters) - British and U.S. intelligence officials say they are worried about a "doomsday" cache of highly classified, heavily encrypted material they believe former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden has stored on a data cloud.
The cache contains documents generated by the NSA and other agencies and includes names of U.S. and allied intelligence personnel, seven current and former U.S. officials and other sources briefed on the matter said.
The data is protected with sophisticated encryption, and multiple passwords are needed to open it, said two of the sources, who like the others spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters.
The passwords are in the possession of at least three different people and are valid for only a brief time window each day, they said. The identities of persons who might have the passwords are unknown.

actually... you cannot be a whistleblower, without being a martyr too... if your an afraid pansy, in fear of losing your life if you release all info you might have, you might as well have continued working for an ABC agency... release everything, take the bullet, make everyone see that what you revealed is legit... what you have now is a boring and predictable dog and pony show...
Now this is something I don't like.
Releasing the names of agents that are undercover is Treason.
I would hope that he would not do this. Exposing programs is one thing.
Putting peoples lives at risk is another.
