Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says Edward Snowden performed a “public service” by triggering a debate over surveillance techniques, but still must pay a penalty for illegally leaking a trove of classified intelligence documents.

Now Holder admits that what Snowden did was a “public service” but that he must still stand trial, which basically means incarceration, possibly even death. It’s a step in the right direction, but there need to be protections in place for whistleblowers to not go to jail for the rest of their lives when they expose corrupt government procedures, and we are not there yet by any means.
