Washington: NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden`s father Lon Snowden has reportedly said that his son`s case is different from that of WikiLeaks accused Bradley Manning.

According to the Politico, Snowden`s father said that people want to compare both cases of Edward and Manning but they are completely different because he thinks his son has exercised discretion in the information that he has shared.

The report added Snowden`s father saying that Edward certainly admires Manning whom he calls `a classic whistleblower inspired by the public good`.

However, Snowden`s father maintained that his son who is facing espionage charges could not get a fair trial in the US.
