    Snowdon put his life in danger and chose a path of vilification and exile for the cause of truth, freedoms and civil liberties of his compatriots and world citizens. Doesn’t that define him as a hero?

    You can’t help but feel sorry for Edward Snowden. He’s been stuck in the Russian airport for too long. It’s great two Latin American countries have offered him asylum. But will he get through airspace to land in Ecuador or Venezuela.
