Edward Snowden, the man behind the leaks of NSA surveillance programs, has "broken the law," Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., said on Thursday, noting that Snowden could have availed himself of laws that protect whistleblowers but chose to leak the information and flee to China instead. "He's not a hero, based on the evidence that I have - he needs to be held accountable."
