A consequence of 9/11 was the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security and the Patriot Act. Today we will look more into this and learn about the whistleblower Edward Snowden. Some see him as a traitor, others as a hero.  Watch the videos shown in class and in groups, discuss whether you think Snowden is a hero or a traitor. List your arguments in a padlet. Can Snowden’s  actions be justified? Why? Can you think of other people who have revealed classified material- who are they and why did they do it?
