This article in The Guardian reports that, in an MSNBC interview, U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric Holder said he would be willing to “engage in conversation” with NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden regarding a return home. But Holder also said granting full-clemency would be “going too far.”
The good thing about this article is it presents both sides of the argument and the channels through which the Government would have had Mr. Snowden go through as a whistle-blower. But on the other hand, Snowden says that he would not have been able to release all the information he found important to divulge by going through those legal channels.
