The White House will not have mercy on Snowden

For those who ask for pardon of Snowden, the White House has one answer: no.

In a formal response posted on the White House’s petition website, President Obama’s adviser on national security issues, Lisa Monaco, said that the discussion should focus on balancing security and confidentiality when investigating possible terrorist plots.

“Instead of constructively solving the problem, Snowden stole and released classified information, which had serious consequences for the security of our country and the people who work day in and day out to protect it,” Monaco wrote.

The former systems analyst of the National Security Agency revealed the fact of NSA spying in 2013 and remains in Russia, where he was granted political asylum. The petitioners call Snowden a national hero and say that he must be pardoned immediately and completely with impunity.

In its response, Monaco said that if Snowden truly believes in civil disobedience, he should "return home to the United States and face trial, not hide under the cover of an authoritarian regime and run away from the consequences of his actions."
