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.)
Not random leaks but governments committing illegal acts around the world
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.
Really only a communist who would love nothing more than to spy on his neighbor could hate what he did.
