Opinion: Snowden Resides in the Murky Grey of Right and Wrong

The reveal of the identity of the man who exposed the NSA scandal leaves me with torn feelings on morality.

Mr. Snowden has placed himself squarely in the middle of right and wrong.

He is a man who did the right thing in all the wrong ways.

First he exposed an unacceptable abuse of government power.

But, he did so to a foreign news outlet, a British outlet, and is now speaking to Chinese news.

I can see how he would worry about contacting the American news with how overly friendly they are to the current administration, but it still leaves me wanting as these issues are best dealt with in house, not through a foreign intermediary.

Snowden also sought refuge from what he claims is a tyrannical government in China.

I can understand his fear of being stockade by the current bloated federal government, but China, a communist country with an a government known for spying on its citizens and jailing political dissenters, makes that argument fall flat

What does make sense is he is either making a horribly poor judgment call or the Chinese have offered him something.

If the former then how can we trust his leak, if the latter then he is a traitor, and again how can we trust him.

I honestly don’t know what to think about a man who does what appears to be the right thing, but makes his stand in such a way that it leaves so many question marks.

He should have made his stand as the state department officials on Benghazi, in this country through our media and to our congress.

Why didn’t he?

I hope that is revealed soon, and it brings his stance out of the grey and into solid right or wrong.
