Rosemary Jenkins: Snowden fled as soon as it was clear that the government wanted to question him. A hero would have stood his ground and defended his actions and explicated his reasoning.
Joseph Palermo: The documents Snowden chose to share with the world have exposed the behavior, attitude, and culture of the NSA. The revelations alone about spying on allied heads of state, such as Brazil and Germany, have already caused real damage to bilateral relations between the U.S. and those countries. The NSA is clearly out of control.
