Snowden Leaks To Severe Legislators Left “Shocked”

Daniel 12:4 NLT “But you, Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end, when many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase."

Representatives on the House Armed Services Committee reportedly were “shocked” by the amount of information the NSA fugitive leaker Edward Snowden released beyond the NSA’s surveillance program.

Rep. Mac Thornberry of Texas said that the information given in the meeting of the panel’s Intelligence, Emergency Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee was “very highly classified” and thus it could not be discussed in public.  However, Rep. Thornberry said the lawmakers “left the briefing disturbed and angered.”

Rep. Thornberry said that the information released by Snowden “went well beyond programs associated with the NSA and data collection.”

Rep. Buck McKeon of California said that he would have to later release a statement because of his anger after hearing the news.

“Ed Snowden isn’t a whistleblower,” Rep. McKeon said.  “He’s a traitor.”
