The topic of the symposium was Edward Snowden: Patriot or Traitor? Five panelists debated this question. Snowden’s attorney, Jesslyn Radack, and Trevor Timm, a founder of the Freedom of the Press Foundation argued that Snowden is a patriot. Stewart Baker of Steptoe & Johnson and Judge James Carr, a federal judge from the Northern District of Ohio (and former Chief Judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court) argued Snowden is a traitor. The Snowden family’s attorney, Bruce Fein, argued that Snowden is neither a patriot nor a traitor.

 

Final Vote Results:

Patriot 34
Traitor 11
Neither 40
