Eric Holder says Edward Snowden performed a 'public service'

Never expected to hear this!

Chicago (CNN)Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says Edward Snowden performed a "public service" by triggering a debate over surveillance techniques, but still must pay a penalty for illegally leaking a trove of classified intelligence documents.

"We can certainly argue about the way in which Snowden did what he did, but I think that he actually performed a public service by raising the debate that we engaged in and by the changes that we made," Holder told David Axelrod on "The Axe Files," a podcast produced by CNN and the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.

This feels like he's saying anything to get near him in the future. Snowden just needs to keep away, I believe as soon as he's useless to whatever country houses him he'll turn up dead. So let's see how much more info he can trickle out over time :)
