Not sure. Part of me thinks he should be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act, but, seriously? The level of his leaks were so enormous that he seems to fall into a new category. Even if we did grant him immunity, who's to say this... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Pasadena, CA
Yes, he should be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act unless proven guilty of treason and both the CIA and NSA directors should be investigated in order to decide the proper course of action. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Baytown, TX
He chose to defend the Constitution by letting us know what our government has been doing since the patriot act was established he should not only be granted immunity but should be given the national meal of freedom. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Salt Lake City, UT
Yes, not only should he be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act, but the directors of the CIA, NSA, and quite possibly the FBI need to be investigated. We had no idea how much our rights were being violated before his leak. The American people... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Elgin, TX
Don't necessarily agree w/ everything the CIA and NSA have been doing regarding all of the surveillance and spying, but I do believe their efforts have probably prevented additional terrorist attacks. But I also question exactly what information... 5 years ago from a Republican in Mandeville, LA
No, but he should be returned to the US to stand trial and we should also still investigate the CIA and NSA directors and their activity. 5 years ago from a Republican in Berkeley, IL
He should be granted immunity only to stop him from leaking any more sensitive information. If there is a way to punish him, I'm in favor of it. 5 years ago from a Republican in Waldwick, NJ
NO! and his parents, girl friend and all realatives should be placed in prison as conspitors until he comes back to the United States of America to face his charges. 5 years ago from a Republican in Yuma, AZ
No he still violated laws. He told the U.S. that the NSA was reading and listening to everything. They are looking for terrorist activity, not to invade privacy or cause suspicion. there are reasons they do these things. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Ellendale, TN
The CIA, NSA and Snowden should be investigated. Snowden should get immunity if his information is accurate and if it can be proven that he did not release this information as an act of evil. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Lincolnwood, IL
No. But negotiate a reasonable deal to bring him back to US and face limited charges. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Pasadena, CA
No. He successfully started the conversation about domestic surveillance, but he also revealed constitutional/lawful activity to protect national security. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Chicago, IL
No, he should stand trial for his actions to determine if his actions were illegal. As well, during the course of the trial, if it is determined that the directors of the CIA and NSA are guilty of any crimes, they too should stand trial for their crimes. 5 years ago from a Green in Lake Oswego, OR
Yes, as long as no further state secrets are disclosed. 5 years ago from a Republican in Denver, CO
