All of the people who have supported Edward Snowden need to do one thing. For all those who have a computer, go to the Internet and type in www.NSA.gov and read the National Security Act.
Snowden was required to read and sign a statement that he read and understood the contents of the National Security Act before his top secret clearance was validated. This document should be in his civilian personnel file at Booz Allen, his employer.
I know all of this is because I held a top secret security clearance while assigned to the U.S. Army Reserve Components Personnel and Administration Center and later the Army Reserve Personnel Center in St. Louis and I have a copy of the document from my personnel file.
