Was Snowden Justified?

pdf (151.15 KB)

The Volokh Conspiracy'€™s Nicholas Rosenkranz links to the '€œparticularly lively'€ Intelligence Squared debate this week in New York City: '€œResolved: Snowden Was Justified.'€ Arguing for the motion were Daniel Ellsberg, the guy who delivered the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times and other media outlets in 1971; and Ben Wizner, legal adviser to Edward Snowden and attorney for the ACLU. Arguing against the motion were Andrew C. McCarthy, the guy who prosecuted the Blind Sheikh; and Ambassador R. James Woolsey, former director of the CIA and chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
