Edward Snowden

It has been less than a week since Edward Snowden identified himself as an NSA whistle-blower and sent the Internet a buzz. The whole world knows who this young man is and what he says he stands for. I see him as someone brave enough to follow his "Inner Compass" and to be transparent about it. At this point I see no reason not to take him at his word.

Snowden was faced with a dilemma. What does any of us do when the chips are down and we face a moral conundrum? The public now knows what he has done and the reasons below that he has given. There are those who immediately dismiss his expressed motives. I'm not one of them.

A friend sent this link listing 27 quotes by Snowden about why he did what he did.
