From everything I've read, Snowden is a loser in every sense of the word.
And not just a loser, but a treasonous loser... who should pay dearly for all
the vast negative consequences of his actions. He is a trader to his job, his
government, and his country. There are no good or valid excuses for his actions.
No one respects a trader. That's why there are so few offers for asylum.
