FYI, you have a typo.

Also can you at least cite a source for the quote if you are going to use it as a title. Just because something is a title doesn't make it true, but people like to pretend it is. Without some sort of cite, which gives some context to what this article might be about, this whole thing just seems like a setup for more circlejerking.

Here: It's the bottom paragraph of the article. Something about the Forbes website makes it impossible to just lift the quote. I found it elsewhere.

For readers who prefer the comments to the article (which often includes me):

    Snowden’s former colleague says that he or she has slowly come to understand Snowden’s decision to leak the NSA’s files. “I was shocked and betrayed when I first learned the news, but as more time passes I’m inclined to believe he really is trying to do the right thing and it’s not out of character for him. I don’t agree with his methods, but I understand why he did it,” he or she says. “I won’t call him a hero, but he’s sure as hell no traitor.”

Embarrassed bank robber running away trailing money. Would be better if hubski didn't filter extraneous spaces.
