All I will say is that the only reason he came across the information in the first place was due to his position of trust granted by the United States. Whether or not the general public "deserved to know" is irrelevant. He betrayed the trust placed in him by this country (and then tried to seek asylum from various enemies of the state).

His leaking sensitive information had the possibility to endanger the lives of other Americans. All of that makes him a traitor (and he did so while we were at war, so I'm sure we all know the penalty for that).

CW5 Scott Montgomery, I agree that "patriot" is instead "traitor". He is a dangerous person. When we get screen for TS Clearance a social scientist should conduct some type of psychological autopsy on this criminal. If nothing else to get an idea on what signs to look for in character or whatever is necessary. I am not educated in such details just the concept in theory. Some day I hope our lawmakers find the balance between the issue of national security and restriction of freedom of information. At some point we will give all our secrets away and it scares me.

Good post, SSG Dwight Amey MSA, MSL, BS, AS. I do work in the counterintelligence field, and we are always looking for new ways to discover this sort of scumbag before he betrays his country. One of the keys is to say something if you see something. There's always 1-800-CALL-SPY, where you can call to leave a message if you notice something about someone that doesn't seem quite right.

What he took with him should be obsolete by now, shame on us if it's not.
