The United Nations human rights commissioner, Navi Pillay, has come out in favor of Edward Snowden: Pillay argues that the former NSA contractor did a public service by pulling back the curtain on surveillance, and says he shouldnt be prosecuted by the United States. I see some of it here in the case of Snowden, because his revelations go to the core of what we are saying about the need for transparency, the need for consultation, Pillay said at a news conference, according to the Guardian. She declined to say if she thought President Barack Obama should pardon Snowden.
