Snowden and Obama

I don’t understand why some from both the right and the left are hailing Mr. Snowden as a hero. Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with the U.S. government’s decision to spy on its citizens and foreign entities, it is never right to leak information that would damage the reputation of your country. The information that are being put out have the potential to impair our relationships with governments around the world and our standing in the international community. Let call Snowden for what he really is — a traitor of the worst kind. He needs to be brought back to the U.S. and be tried for treason. I have no sympathy for this person.
As for President Barack Obama and his penchant to spy on everyone (from the press to the Japanese embassy in Washington D.C.), it is obvious that his flowery rhetoric does not match his actions. For someone whose slogans were to bring integrity back to the White House and to restore America’s reputation in the world, he has been doing the opposite. I still can’t believe he was a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. What peace has he brought to the world? I’m sorry but I haven’t found any. His tenure started out with great promise but is on course for failure.
