In my opinion, he's a hero and NOT a hero.

Yes he did expose potentially unconstitutional spying (assuming it was not approved by the FISA court, in which case, we are going after the wrong people.)

HOWEVER, did you know that while in Hong Kong at his press conference, he also talked about US government operations against hackers in China and various Pacific Rim countries?

Since this has nothing to do with unconstitutional spying on Americans, it's also revealing classified information that has nothing to do with freedoms guaranteed to US citizems by the constitution.

In fact, it's espionage, against the Defense Security Act of 1950, which is a public law.
