Is National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden a criminal or hero?

Time will tell, but as Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano explained Sunday evening, Snowden, 29, is technically not considered a whistleblower at this time.

Napolitano breaks down what happens next, which may be the U.S. government’s attempt to have Snowden extradited from Hong Kong.

Earlier Sunday, Fox News reported:

New York Republican Rep. Peter King, chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterintelligence and Terrorism and a member of the Select Committee on Intelligence, said: “If Edward Snowden did in fact leak the NSA data as he claims, the United States government must prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law and begin extradition proceedings at the earliest date. The United States must make it clear that no country should be granting this individual asylum. This is a matter of extraordinary consequence to American intelligence.”

Now, we must wait to see if China will cooperate with the U.S. in this matter.
