    Both traitors, Manning in particular.

    Releasing hacked information is one thing, releasing information you've been entrusted to protect is another.

    Both are traitors. Snowden could have been a patriot by not fleeing. Manning put American lives at risk.

    I'm not sure about the manning case. I like Snowden. By the letter of the law he is a traitor. But he did expose a lot of government corruption.

    Intentions matter. Snowden is a hero because he acted selflessly to inform the American public that their government is illegally spying on them.

    Manning was a self-absorbed miserable misfit who stole intelligence and released it to WikiLeaks for no other reason than revenge against the organization that he blamed for his failed life. That makes him a traitor.

    People trying to be patriots that likely were manipulated by the Russians through Wikileaks. Although there is a slight chance that they were working for the Russians all along.

    Did Snowden even go to Wiki? I thought he went to journalists first.

    it's quite unreasonable that multiple votes are allowed yet we can only vote for "go to hell midget" once! :mad:

    Some would say he's a she.

    Instead of a deserved execution, Manning is walking on the wild side on the military dime.

    Who is Manning?

    I know Snowden was the guy who was entrusted to protect information but leaked it to other nations, making him no better than any spy who should be hung.

    They are Whistleblowers, but there's no option for that.

    They told truths that needed to be told for the greater good, despite it being counter to the interests of the Country they were supposed to be subject to.

    Whistleblowers.

    For any character flaws they've provided a direly needed service to the country. How can you tell they were important? Look at the the backlash from the current administration.

    Says it all really.
