The view that the former National Security Agency contractor wanted by the United States for leaking top-secret government surveillance programs should be taken into custody is breeding unlikely alliances in Washington: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was heckled at a progressive conference Saturday after stating that Snowden broke the law. "I know that some of you attribute heroic status to that action," she said of Snowden's leaks. "But, again, you don't have the responsibility for the security of the United States. Those of us who do have to strike a different balance."
