You have read two articles about Edward Snowden, the National  Security Agency (NSA) contractor who provided the media with top- secret government information about surveillance programs:


Edward Snowden is No Hero

Edward Snowden, Whistle-Blower 
http://nyti.ms/Kls11i 


Consider the arguments and claims each author makes about whether Edward Snowden is a hero or a traitor and write an essay evaluating these claims. Determine whether the claims are reasonable and  supported with valid evidence. Explain which author presents the  most convincing argument about whether Edward Snowden is a hero  or a traitor. Use evidence from the articles in your essay to support  your explanation.
