Why would I admit to something that is not true?

Snowden did the right thing in the wrong way. Unfortunately, he didn't see the "right" way as a viable option. He may have been correct in that assessment.

You believe leaking classified information you are entrusted to keep secret is the "right thing"?   

You believe moving to Russia and continuing to criticize the United States from a Russian safe house is the "right thing"?

What was the "right thing" he did, and how if he did it in the wrong way, what is the right way?

If you were in the top echelon in the Nazi Party and you discovered Hitler's true reason for rounding up the Jews, would it be "right" or "wrong" to leak that classified information?

It'd be great if liberals and conservatives could come together at least to defend America.

It was a good analogy. It is disappointing, but not surprising that you can't see it.

It broadens the conversation you interjected with your post questioning whether leaking classified information could ever be the "right thing."  You now understand that, yes, it very well could be.

Oftentimes people make comments with the intent of backing others in ethical corner.

I'm just demonstrating the error of your position.

We need to get this thread back on track.

Assange is NOT an American, hence he's not a traitor. He did publish private documents, which, by definition puts him in the category of being a member of The Press. I don't really know that the US can do much to him -- legally -- but it will be interesting to try.

I wish we could have kept Snowden out of this thread because the two situations are vastly different.
