    Assange is totally a villain, but at the same time he almost certainly deserve protection as it's very hard to argue that wikileaks was not in effect a press organization.

    As far Snowden goes, hero. In an ideal world he would be able to face the consequences of his actions (technically breaking of laws) and be able to defend himself in a fair trial... but lord knows that wouldn't happen in this country in the last 20 years.
