Snowden: I’m Neither Traitor nor Hero

Edward Snowden is reportedly still in Hong Kong and looking for legal help, according to several local papers. The Oriental Daily News reported that Snowden is seeking the help of human-rights organizations and lawyers in Hong Kong, while the South China Morning Post says he is holed up in a "secret location." The Post spoke to Snowden, who said, "I'm neither traitor nor hero. I'm an American." The paper promises more details about the National Security Agency surveillance program and Snowden's plans. “People who think I made a mistake in picking [Hong Kong] as a location misunderstand my intentions. I am not here to hide from justice, I am here to reveal criminality,” Snowden told the Post.
