Opposition grows to Snowden's play for a pardon

NY Times:

House Intelligence Committee Urges No Pardon for Edward Snowden


A letter from lawmakers tries to counter recent heroic portrayals of the N.S.A. leaker in an Oliver Stone movie, and by human rights groups.
I do not see him as a hero.  His revelations of NSA's methods for keeping tabs on terrorists  coincides with an increase in successful terrorist attacks on the US and its allies and increase use of encryption by the terrorists.  His play for sympathy comes with a lot of blood and death that could have been stopped but for his telling the enemy about NSA's sources and methods.
