Correct me if I am wrong, but one of the first remarks out of Snowden's mouth after he fled to Hong Kong was: "I'll accept whatever punishment I get."

Now he has a list of 15 countries he is applying to trying to get asylum.

What a brave soul.

... more of these guys are needed now more than ever.

Besides, just because he will accept punishment doesn't mean he has to stand still while his prosecutors beat the sheesh out of him.  When he gets a chance for justice we will se what happens but at the moment he is up against America.  Justice is a pliable concept there.
