A public trial may put everything he knows on the table. It may be devastating for the administration.

I'm afraid he won't live long enough to face trial.

What would concern me is if they pick him up, lock him away, and keep delaying his trial due to constant 'unforeseen events'.
He does need a trial to show his innocence or guilt but to also make the government admit on record that what he said is true. If they don't admit to it, then he is just some guy making up a story. If they admit to it, they are admitting to a gross violation of the 4th Amendment.

Usually things like this are very clear cut black and white.
This one isn't.
November 6, 2012, a day in infamy...the death of a republic as we know it.

My guess is that Snowden has provided his contacts with more information than has currently been disclosed -- perhaps as "insurance" to be used if the powers-that-be try to silence him. (Could be wrong about that).

I posted this in another thread, but it's appropriate here, too:
======================================================
There's something that's going to become even more important than the NSA revelations themselves.

That will be the _reactions_ of our elected officials to this knowledge becoming public.

Think of it as one of the most important "litmus tests" of our times.

By how our Senators and Congressmen express their views towards these events, we will know how they _really_ regard our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

It's going to open our eyes, towards BOTH democrats and Republicans (the latter of whom we thought we could entrust the future of our country).

There aren't many who are going to stand on the side of Liberty.

Both very good points.

The spokes-kid Jay Carney keeps telling us that Snowden's actions are "under investigation"; so where are these congress people getting their information?  How do they know he has released classified material?  My sense is that he has revealed the nature of PROCESSES only, not data.
