NEWSMAX - FBI Director: Snowden Leaks Made Nation 'Exceptionally Vulnerable'

Thursday, 13 Jun 2013 12:09 PM

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Thursday defended a pair of controversial government surveillance programs, telling Congress that leaking information on them harms national security.

In his last appearance as FBI director before the House Judiciary Committee, Mueller said that terrorists track leaked information "very, very closely" and that because of leaks "we lose our ability to get their communications" and "we are exceptionally vulnerable."

"As to the individual who has admitted making these disclosures, he is the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation," Mueller said without naming Snowden.

Mueller added: "We are taking all necessary steps to hold the person responsible for these disclosures."

Conflicting Messages from Intelligence Heads

I find it interesting that they are all denying that they can even do any of the the things that got 'leaked', other than the Verizon thing. Then, out the other sides of their mouths they say things like "he has done great harm to national security".

Cherry on top, people like Senator King going out and making statements that Greenwald was threatening to expose agents in other countries, yet there is NO such threat from Greenwald,for fact.
