While I generally support President Obama, his position on Edward Snowden sure puts him on the wrong side of history [“2 newspapers call for clemency for Edward Snowden,” News, Jan. 3].
World opinion increasingly hails Snowden as a hero, and it’s become quite clear that this is how history will view him. The president really needs to do an about-face on this one or risk future generations putting him in the same mental folder with the likes of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
So to President Obama: it’s past time to get in step. Do a 180 now on this issue and you just might get on the right side of history before it’s too late.
