Forget about the Russian invasion of Crimea in Ukraine - Edward Snowden needs to talk about the security of the United States as a remote robot! No really - irony is lost on this guy. We are in danger from the NSA, but meanwhile his friend Putin is invading other countries, not to mention spying on everybody. But nevermind that - Snowden is a hero!

Chris Anderson: You’ve been called many things in the last few months: whistleblower, traitor, hero… What words would you use to describe yourself?
Edward Snowden: You know, everybody who’s involved with this debate has been struggling over me, my personality and how to describe me. This isn’t the question we should be struggling with. Who I am really doesn’t matter at all. If I’m the worst person in the world, hate me and move on. What really matters here are the issues of the government we want, the Internet we want, the relationship between people and societies. That’s what I hope the debate will move towards. If i had to describe myself, I’m not a hero, patriot, traitor. I’d say I’m an American and a citizen. [Applause.]
Snowden: "I'm living proof that an individual can go head to head with the most powerful intelligence agencies around the world -- and win"— Amanda Wills (@AmandaWills) March 18, 2014

Just wait until you see Edward Snowden become the US president in few years LOL
This guy is making history, similar to Nelson Mandela!

Anyone noticing the irony that Snowden is only able to make his case for liberty and democracy because it happens to be a good way for Putin to poke the US in the eye?
~ Kevin T. on YouTube
Snowden might as well be working for RT (Russia Today)
Snowden said "What really matters here is the kind of government we want; the kind of internet we want."
The kind of place where child porn purveyors can trade their wares without worrying about prosecution.
Russia is playing him like a fool, stroking his ego to keep the goods coming.

Russian troops are just casually storming Ukrainian military bases now and killing people. Tell me again how America is the worst.— Danielle Awful Bore (@DCPlod) March 18, 2014
Snowden & @ggreenwald are the left's version of doomsday preppers, preaching apocalypse from odd bunkers in Russia/Brazil as life pushes on.— Jeffrey Wright (@jfreewright) March 19, 2014
Edward Snowden has denounced US for invading our privacy but remains silent on Russia invading an actual country. #Ukraine— Bill Wong (@ten24get) March 18, 2014
Peace Prize? No. But Snowden is a shoe-in for the "biggest assist to Putin's grand agenda" prize.— Lex (@LuthorCEO) March 18, 2014
The Snowden/Greenwald message is inspiring lunatics all across this great land http://t.co/jRwG3yqESr— Charles Johnson (@Green_Footballs) March 20, 2014
Strange that the countries Wikileaks/Greenwald/Snowden helped are cracking down on dissenters/media, building empires, and they are silent.— Lex (@LuthorCEO) March 19, 2014
Enough already with the tweets asking Greenwald and Snowden to comment on Putin. You are assuming they have integrity. THEY DON'T.— Коля Молодыко (@molodyko) March 15, 2014
