House Armed Services Committee Chair Buck McKeon (R-CA) and Vice Chair Mac Thornberry (R-TX), chair of the Subcommittee on Intelligence, Emerging Threats, and Capabilities (IETC), spoke to reporters in the Rayburn Building Horseshoe Lobby following a closed-door briefing of the IETC on the impact of government surveillance leaks by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. Representative McKeon said that Mr. Snowden was not a whistle-blower but a traitor and a criminal as the majority of the information he took was not related to telephone surveillance programs but would compromise U.S. military operations and put members of the military at risk. close
