  5. 5. Correctness of his actions  NSA Claims wiretapping was not intrusion to US citizens Privacy but legitimate way to intercept terrorist activities or communications  “ he wasn’t blowing the whistle on anything illegal; he was exposing something that failed to meet his own standards of propriety. The question, of course, is whether the government can function when all of its employees (and contractors) can take it upon themselves to sabotage the programs they don’t like. That’s what Snowden has done.”
  6. 6. Correctness of his actions Snowden contends that he simply wanted the public to know that government was watching and recording people who were doing no wrong. “to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them” 
