#1 So he signed the NDA and swore an oath with full knowledge that he intended to break it.

#2 "swore an oath with full knowledge that he intended to break it"

#3 Came across this article while "reading other news" on the net, just wanted to share it -
While working for spies, Snowden was secretly prolific online

Was the article news to you ?
It was news to me.

#5 It depends on your choice:
Was he (or did he think he was) defending the constitution by breaking his oath to his employer?
I am tempted, in this case, to think he was.

#6 His intention was to collect information about the NSA hacking into "the whole world" and "not specifically Hong Kong and China," he said.

That tells me that he intended to reveal this, including lists of foreign computers the NSA compromised, to those who are not our friends - severely damaging our national security. Intentionally.

Who knows what else he has on those 4 laptops. Encryption keys? Informer identities? If he's willing to reveal foreign systems we compromised - why not foreign nationals? I believe Wikileaks has absolutely no problem doing so - why should he?
