No matter what you thought before about Ed Snowden, I'm guessing you will think differently - or at least in a more informed way - about him if you watch this entire interview.
You may or may not change your mind. But if you are like me, he will no longer be as much of a mystery as he was before. You will learn things you didn't know even if you have been paying close attention to issue.
You may be surprised by Ed's opinions on the NSA and spying in general now that the people have the information he provided to news organisations.
Ed Snowden's legacy may very well be more about how things have changed with new technologies and less about the NSA itself or it's activities. It may be more about examining our freedoms, our rights, and where the country (and the world) is headed than it is about a man who told people things he thought they had a right to know.
Beyond the inevitable sensationalism of the headlines that highlight his answer to the question about whether he is a traitor or a patriot there is real information here. It's about Ed Snowden, but it's beyond Ed Snowden.
In my opinion, this is an important news story. Real news of lasting significance, for a change.
