Edward Snowden did something that many people may feel is an act of betrayal. He was in the CIA where he was exposed to many confidential files and reports that are not supposed to be known. Snowden leaked these confidential files to the news in May 2013. He is known in many places as a hero, and others as a traitor. He basically breached to United States intelligence and made confidential files public for everyone to see. He is looked as an enemy to the state and can not be trusted with information. I just recently have been made informed about Snowden and i am very shocked by what he did and think it was a cowardly act that needs to be inforced properly.
