What is treasonable?

In light of the recent charge of treason being levied on Snowden, I would ask what is justifiably treasonable vs. freedom of citizen information? How does the charge of treason in this case compare to say, George Bush Jr., who brought a whole nation to war based on his selected information and thus causing the deaths of tens of thousands of our citizens?

  • Jun 29 2013: True....except that Wikipedia says espionage is also giving secrets to another country. I don't think Snowden has done this. He revealed the contents of some of his info to the world, not a single country.
    • Jul 2 2013: Touche..maybe i should have check my own definitions before posting lol. that is a good point though, which only further questions the charges being brought against him
