Steve Wozniak on Snowden

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden is a hero says Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder. He also told that Snowden is a whistleblower and not a Russian spy. Wozniak made this statement at an interactive session held at Europe’s largest technology conference – Cebit 2014 – in Hannover in Germany.

He said:

“He is a hero to me, but he may be a traitor to other people and I understand the reasons for them to think that way. I believe that Snowden believed, like I do, that the US has a right to freedom. He had the guts and courage to sacrifice his life for a principle.”

“He has been vindicated and there have been illegal judgements and the NSA, and by the way, we have other three letter agencies like the CIA and FBI, and they are probably doing similar things. They cover up those loopholes, and they are in violation with our Constitution.”

“A lot of politicians pass law after law that go against the Constitution and in court, when people like Snowden come up, they say that the government has acted according to the law. Ten years later, the Supreme Court says that those laws are unconstitutional. It’s a long, long process to get justice,”
