He has a point

Edward Snowden participated in an online Q&A about his leaking US intelligence information and commented on feedback from one particular critic:
It's important to bear in mind I'm being called a traitor by men like former vice president Dick Cheney. This is a man who gave us the warrantless wiretapping scheme as a kind of atrocity warm-up on the way to deceitfully engineering a conflict that has killed over 4,400 and maimed nearly 32,000 Americans, as well as leaving over 100,000 Iraqis dead. Being called a traitor by Dick Cheney is the highest honor you can give an American. 
A nice STFU even without reference to Cheney's torture program.
