Edward Snowden admits he leaked details of a secret government program collecting massive phone and Internet data.
He immediately triggered a major news story that is still growing; in fact, there are reports that even more information will be coming.
Snowden was a contractor with the National Security Agency and decided the public needed to know how the NSA was spying on Americans.
So, now as the story unfolds, the government is preparing criminal charges against Snowden while the nation debates what he did.
There are those who say that he is a traitor and should be fully prosecuted for releasing how the NSA works; at the same time, there are those on the other side who are defending Snowden.
The debate is creating strange bedfellows.
Reportedly, the Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore and Conservative commentator Glenn Beck … both tweeted that they think Snowden is a “hero”.
So where do you stand?
