Edward Snowden the whistleblower of PRISM surveillance program has been nominated for the nobel peace prize for his heroic effort on the cost of his personal life. Snowden has been earning $200,000 a year and living with his girl friend happily. Beside all this he take a step for the people to protect their privacy rights.
The nomination has been done by a Swedish professor of sociology who wrote a letter to Norwegian Nobel Committee nominating Edward Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize.
However Snowden is too late to receive noble peace prize for this year which will be awarded in December but he could be considered the year 2014. Snowden applied for asylum in Norway on July 2, but the country then planned to reject it according to their national law so the NSA whistleblower would have a hard time in accepting the noble peace prize.
