Mr. Snowden’s choice to go to Hong Kong to denounce oppressive government surveillance, and his decision to tell the South China Morning Post about N.S.A. hacking into computers in mainland China and Hong Kong last week, has fueled accusations of disloyalty to the United States. On Sunday, former Vice President Dick Cheney called Mr. Snowden a “traitor” and hinted he might be spying for China.
But Mr. Snowden denied any contact with the Chinese government and said it was “the highest honor you can give an American” to be called a traitor by Mr. Cheney, whom he denounced as “a man who gave us the warrantless wiretapping scheme as a kind of atrocity warm-up on the way to deceitfully engineering a conflict that has killed over 4,400 and maimed nearly 32,000 Americans, as well as leaving over 100,000 Iraqis dead.”"
