"Whistleblower or defector?" Continued...

Despite Snowden’s alleged circumspectness, The Post published only four of the 41 PowerPoint slides he originally asked it to reveal, because editors believed the others contained information that could threaten U.S. national security. The Guardian also kept some information secret.

The Post noted Snowden appears to have donated $500 to Ron Paul’s presidential campaign in 2012. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., the former candidate’s son, said on Sunday he’d like to organize a class-action lawsuit against the federal government for secretly collecting massive amounts of data from American phone calls.
