Very contentious subject this one.

Just remember that the bad guys use encrypted services (eg WhatsApp) to plan their deeds and sometimes it's good for the security services to catch them before they blow-up innocent people, not after.

Snowden's deeds have directly contributed to lives being lost, perhaps that's a fair price, perhaps not.
