Snowden should tried for treason [Letter]

The more I read about Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency consultant who leaked thousands of classified documents to the media, the more disgusted and concerned I am ("Snowden tells tech crowd: Improve protection of data," March 11).

Why didn't Mr. Snowden discuss what he considered to be a U.S. government weakness with the appropriate federal departments so that corrective measures could have been taken by Congress?

In my opinion, Mr. Snowden is a traitor who should have been summoned to court long ago to stand trial.

Quinton D. Thompson, Towson
