Perhaps, but I doubt it was worth ruining his life. On balance he probably did do something good but it is undermined when he considers Russia, Venezuela etc as liberal safe havens.

I think something as complex as this can't really be classified as right or wrong. We now know about PRISM, and some of the big technology companies are trying to get more transparency on data collected on us as a result, but whether this is worth people losing trust in our governments at a pivotal time is not certain.
