The only ones calling him a "coward" are shills for the military-surveillance-banking industrial cartel. Moreover, CIA Whistleblower Susan Lindauer DID stay here which resulted in her being the first American indicted under the Patriot Act and subsequently denounced as crazy:

"I requested to testify through proper channels. I was a whistleblower, but I did it through Congress -- I TRIED to do it through Congress. And a lot of whistleblowers are citing my case as evidence that going through the proper channels is not going to work and is not going to protect the public or the whistleblower. It makes no difference: if the government feels threatened they will attack you, even if you're doing everything right. So why not make sure that the public has the information?

Edward Snowden appears to be a tipping point, and I consider that to be very valuable. A lot of what Edward Snowden has revealed is already known to those of us inside the intelligence community, but it's not known by the wider public. And he has forced this issue into the public domain where ordinary Americans are now confronting the EXTREME surveillance that's going on. But I can tell you that for several years, within a 10-mile radius of every home in the United States, in the most isolated rural areas there is someone listening to your phone calls and reading your emails. And we've known this for a long time."
