Than one should consider the information lost. And than kidnapp him where he is, like Israel did Eichmann.
We should give him a very public, a show trial like Hoover did to Rosenbergs. To scare the rest of the wanna-be hero f*ckers to ever spill the motherland's secrets. After all, if it were mother Russia, or any of the current "Bolivarian Revolution" states -- he would be killed. First ass raped hard and publicly than killed.

Assange and Manning (Wikileaks in general) are financed indirectly by Russia through the third intermediaries.
Lulzsec are just a bunch of crazy hacker kids with nothing to do. Noone finances them.
Arab Spring is an American creation of the Bush administration under the Secretary of State Rice.

Here what I think they should do.... Moscow-Havana flight comes north, flies over Iceland, Greenland, then Canada, comes down South across the United States, down the Florida cost and lands in Cuba.
On the way there (when it is confirmed that Snowden is on board...) Make sure they have some sort of mechanical failure and forced to land....

Oh he will. Considering what he knows, he is probably in the basement of Sheremetyevo right now being water-boarded by heavy-set guys from Lyubyanka...
Actually... never mind. I seriously doubt that. He will probably give up all the secrets and name the names of all the American assets that he said he saw voluntarily... Because the man is no hero. He is a traitor.

Einstein besides being a hero of science, has always been an outspoken critic of Nazi Germany, and contributed to our war effort against the Japanese (you know how...)
Newton, also being a hero of science has openly questioned the teachings of the Church, even though Cambridge University (where Newton was employed) was overseen and financially dependent on the Church... He is a hero because he could have gone the way of Copernicus or at least Galileo Galilei ("Eppur si muove")...

Schmuck. It is because you never lived in Soviet Union or Russia, you are capable of spewing this nonsense.
Post-monarchical Russia has always claimed democracy and rule by the People... That's the point of having People's Congress and the "Soviet" in the "Soviet Union". And the "Democratic" post-USSR Russia has always claimed to have a rule of Democracy. They just have a very sneaky ways of going around it to instill aristocracy (such as having a 3 term "president", police intimidation of the opposition, disqualification of the opposition from the elections, imprisoning the most outspoken critics, etc.)
As a Russian, I would tell you directly -- you don't want to show your face in the streets of Moscow. You would be a prime candidate for "re-education".

The United States Constitution states, in Article III, Section 3: "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
By exposing national secrets that served as a basis of protection, Snowden performed "adherence to the Enemies". He absolutely should be tried for treason for this. He lied on his credentials for clearance and job specifically (as he admitted) to get into the NSA and expose the spying secrets.

I don't recall them ever mentioning either Guy Fawkes or the Gunpowder Plot anywhere in the Federalist Papers or anywhere else.
HOWEVER the wrote the following for sure:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.

There is absolutely nothing illegal about the orders or about the fact of the wiretapping that NSA has been accused and admitted to. Your definition of "illegal" posts as much weight as "Applekid and any other unapologetic assumptionists of this thoughtless dreck illegally posting on the Slashdot!"
