Hero or Villain? Somewhere in-between?

Since 2013, there are few American figures as controversial as former CIA technician Edward Snowden.

The 33-year-old, CIA employee-turned-constitutional activist is no less provocative in the TheBlaze’s office. Glenn Beck and his team of writers and producers recently gathered in the Think Tank to debate Snowden and his motives, especially in light of the new film, “Snowden.”

“This movie is dangerous. It’s a false narrative,” argued Jason Buttrill, Beck’s lead researcher. “It’s a false narrative. And it’s exactly what Wikileaks and Russian and who else — name a bad guy — that’s what they want you to think, this version of Snowden.”

Beck, who says he still has mixed feelings on the issue, played devil’s advocate, asking if we should be more lenient with our constitutional rights during a time of fear or war.
