NSA phone surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden ruled illegal

The US court of appeals has ruled that the bulk collection of telephone metadata is unlawful, in a landmark decision that clears the way for a full legal challenge against the National Security Agency.

A panel of three federal judges for the second circuit overturned an earlier ruling that the controversial surveillance practice first revealed to the US public by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013 could not be subject to judicial review.

I recall a number of people calling Snowden a traitor. Lets' see how they explain this logic. If you blow the whistle on illegal activity, regardless of whether it is classified, and that behavior is reviewed and declared illegal BECAUSE of that whistleblowing, then the whistleblower cannot be a traitor.
