Raul Gallegos: Snowden facing sad, lonely future

Edward Snowden, the man behind the disclosure of secret documents on U.S. surveillance activities, faces a sad and lonely future. Germany’s asylum denial and the White House’s rejection of clemency for the former National Security Agency contractor turned whistle-blower foreshadow a life on the run. His mediocre career and one-page “manifesto” suggest limited prospects as a turncoat spook or as a critic of U.S. spy agencies. More important, history shows life isn’t kind to U.S. intelligence insiders gone rogue.
