Snowden Could Not Attend The Oscars For Some Treason: Snowden's Disclosures Have Damaged U.S. Efforts To Battle Terrorists, Says NSA Admiral
Veteran national security reporter Bill Gertz at the Washington Free Beacan offers a piece on the NSA director's comments on Edward Snowden, who in my view is a spy and traitor.
Disclosures of National Security Agency secrets by the former contractor Edward Snowden have damaged U.S. efforts to battle terrorists, NSA Director Adm. Mike Rogers said on Monday.
“I would say that it has had a material impact on our ability to generate insights as to what terrorist groups around the world are doing,” Rogers said at a conference in Washington.
The admiral declined to provide specifics. “I don’t want them to have any doubt in their minds we are aggressively out hunting and looking for them,” he said during a cyber security conference hosted by the New America Foundation.
“And they should be concerned about that, and I want them to be concerned, quite frankly, because I’m concerned about the security of our nation,” Rogers said.
The director of the NSA in his comments voiced concerns that the security of Americans and overseas allies has been undermined by the leaks. “So anyone who thinks this has not had an impact, I would say, doesn’t know what they’re talking about,” he said.
... "Edward Snowden could not be here for some treason,” Harris said after Citizenfour, a film about Snowden, won an Oscar.
