(rolling my eyes).

I guess he deserves a medal it is what he wanted all along.

Honestly what is the guy's deal? I'm glad he did what he did but what is / are his motives?

I'll bet he doesn't give a damn about you or me, so did he do it for the attention, for fortune? It just seems too weird.

Lets just say I don't think he's a 'hero'. (just my opinion.)


You shouldn't be asking why he did it. What you should be asking is why there aren't more doing it.

As to his motives... I don't understand your question. The answer to "Why would a person let his fellow countrymen know they are being spied on?" is actually in the question. It's rhetorical.

What give the NPP to a person who actually did something positive and effective towards improving world peace. BAhh this is outrageous.

That Obama won it was seriously the apex of where it became no longer serious as an award. Its like the academy awards who takes them seriously anymore, an apex was turned at some point where the awards become as meaningful as prizes out of a cornfakes box.

This is awesome. Snowden should win.

This man is a true patriot, caring more for his fellow countrymen than his corrupt government. Really only a communist who would love nothing more than to spy on his neighbor could hate what he did.

Edward Snowden is a hero in my books! Just released documents show CSEC was spying on Canadians in Canada and around the world. This is against CSEC's legislated mandate and illegal. Stephen Harper (Canada's Prime Minister) needs to answer for this or at least answer to this!

A top secret document retrieved by U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden and obtained by CBC News shows that Canada's electronic spy agency used information from the free internet service at a major Canadian airport to track the wireless devices of thousands of ordinary airline passengers for days after they left the terminal.

After reviewing the document, one of Canada's foremost authorities on cyber-security says the clandestine operation by the Communications Security Establishment Canada ( CSEC) was almost certainly illegal.

So to get a Nobel prize, one has only to hack into US government files, distribute random leaks to the doom-porn hungry people, and there you got, instant nobel prize.

He just created a pro-marxist fifth column inside US and Canada, and they call that peace? It's the recipe for a war! I don't understand these guys. Who will get the net nobel prize? The pro-marxist Russian president, who had the grace to "hide" his pal Snowden from the "bad, bad US? "

That is outrageous! The guy's a damn hacker who didn't even knew what he stole! Imagine just for one second he could've released the US nuclear codes without knowing it!! You're damn lucky it was just espionage files. What's next? Anonymous receiving a Noble Prize while they're manifesting so that all the population goes to war? There's a good reason why only Russia wanted to protect Snowden. The Cold War is not done, it's never been done, and here's Snowden, a guy who's completely destroyed the US. And he gets a Nobel Prize for hacking government files.

against their own peoples and breaking laws. What doom porn, I am missing that comment?

I can understand the Nobel Committee wanting to be active politically but I wish they would find another way of doing it.

Handing the Nobel Peace Prize to an "un-Bush" as was done in the case of the newly elected Obama or political activists like Snowden for reasons that have nothing to do with peace, relegates the intended purpose of the prize to irrelevancy.

They should create a new category of Nobel Prize, the "Nobel Popularity Prize", for people the Nobel Committee feels the need to acknowledge, as a way of stating to the world at large that the Committee too reads the newspapers and watches the TV and does indeed know what is happening in the world.

I would have nominated Mr. Putin or Mr. Lavrov for the Peace Prize this year. They basically shut down the idea of a major war in Syria.

I have to hand it to the Committee though, nominating Snowden for the Peace Prize is a great way to penetrate the fog off the Potomac.

You're joking, right? All major leaks were directed at American Intelligence. Russia was barely mentioned, if not completely overlooked.

People wanted to peek under NSA's robe, Snowden gave a big pile of candies which any sensationalists antiamerican newspapers could dream of, and now he's a superstar.

Meanwhile anti-Americanism is on the rise inside US itself, thanks to Snowden & his Russian friends. Russia has nothing to lose by this.

When someone gives me a big pile of candies, I tend to ask what's the catch, not just gobble it up.

He didn't destroy the US. He destroyed the way the US has been doing business, which was bad. US was not very well liked around the world before this. He didn't really harm our image. Since when is transparency and telling the truth bad things? They are not. We're, the USA, turning into Soviet ERA Russia by the day. What Snowden did is return us to Freedom and the Constitution which...gives us the right to privacy. It's too easy for a corrupt government to abuse the information that the NSA and other Alphabet agencies are stealing from us....lawful American Citizens. We are pouring billions of dollars into these agencies just so they can spy on us. So what is the real Effect that Snowden's actions caused? More oversight for one. I huge world discussion on spying and freedom. He hasn't hurt our military intelligence capabilities. What he's done is hurt these goons from spying on lawful, innocent American citizens. This country was founded on Freedom. If you don't like that, perhaps you should move somewhere like North Korea where they really do spy on every little thing you do. You could be a good little citizen over there.

You guys have so LOW tolerance. You think the US is a dictatorship... you guys don't even know what TRUE dictatorship really is. In a true dictatorship, you would have never even had the possibility to log in ATS and post all kind of anti-governmental stuff.

It is obvious to me that many here prefer worshipping Snowden than to investigate the motive and the more complex intelligence stratagems behind his acts.

You guys are so obsessed with knowing all about the latest scandals that it has become a leverage to steer the minds of millions.

Snowden is best friend with the Russian communists, mate. You do know that russian government is communist, right??

You talk about Freedom in the US. Trust me, you got alot more than in alot of places. Why has Snowden only concentrated in the US? What about China, where the population is put in a rehabilitation base if they spend more than 1 hour per day on the Internet? Hmm? What about Russia, where journalist are still killed when saying things against the governments, or where gay people are still persecuted? What about them, who deserves alot more help than the US? Snowden never once exposed them. Why?

This kind of news restores what little faith I have in humanity.

Edward Snowden is a hero and it would be nice to see him get global recognition for alerting us all to the truth.

One question: Does anyone know the process for nominating?

I mean, this is the organizational body that gave Obama the Peace Prize. Because of that, they have little credibility to me.

Here's your answer:

The atrocities committed by the US Government against its citizens is very troubling because we are a democracy.

We were known as the greatest experiment ever to grace the earth. The Declaration and the Constitution were considered masterpieces, giving men the freedom they were inherently endowed by birthright and by God. We fought wars in the name of "freedom," laid down our lives to fight for it and to spread it across the globe. We shunned other countries that did not honor human rights, and supposedly fought for the impoverished and downtrodden and the imprisoned in countries where freedom wasn't even a thought.

If you need illustration, go visit the graves in Normandy.

Snowden revealed that the US--and indeed the world--is being overtaken by a group of people (call them what you like: military industrial complex, illuminati, etc) and that the very freedom people have fought and died for is currently just a sham, an irony, a joke.

The implications of this are astounding, because it doesn't just effect the people of this country--but the world. We are newly awakened to our slave-like existence--thanks to Snowden.

He has started rolling a stone down a hill that will pick up momentum and gain mass as it moves. Humanity is now poised with a great question: will we react? Will we rebel? Will we succeed? Will we shed our chains?

The crux of my argument is this: How could a nation that stood for the liberty and freedom of the rest of the world have fumbled so greatly? How could we have slept in this dream---denying the truth right in front of us? How could this once great nation have turned out to be so hypocritical? The deceit is beyond anyone's imagination.

You simply cannot underestimate the repercussions of this great debacle----this giant fumble in the evolution of man.

If the people of the US are not truly free, then who is?

We use to be a symbol of hope for the masses, but Snowden has revealed the truth.

Snowden just needs to fade into obscurity. Maybe he should have just stayed anonymous!

I realize that we have it better here that a lot of or maybe most countries, when it comes to freedom, but I'd like to keep it that way. What Snowden did was makes sure it stays that way. I realize that Russia is still a mostly communist state but I would argue that he didn't have many other choices of places to go. Believing that what Snowden did was heroic does not equate to worship. I would say that I probably have a better grasp on world politics than many of those bashing me on this thread and bashing Snowden in general. Why are you so angry at what he did? That's the true question. Do you like that the NSA has all of your emails, web history and call records for decades? Do you like that, with the patriot act, they could imprison you for years without a trial, just for something you said in jest on the web? Doesn't that all sound a bit like Soviet Era Russia to you? Are you guys that anxious to go there? Let's deny ignorance, shall we?
