Secretary of State John Kerry, whose inept presidential campaign bumbled the nation into another four years of George W. Bush in the White House, has some choice words for Edward Snowden:

“Edward Snowden is a coward,” Kerry told Chuck Todd on MSNBC. “He is a traitor. And he has betrayed his country. And if he wants to come home tomorrow to face the music, he can do so.”

John Kerry is wrong. Edward Snowden is an American hero.
