Congressman Justin Amash (R-Mich.) told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that NSA leaker Edward Snowden is a whistleblower. Snowden was granted asylum by the Russian government last week after spending weeks in the Moscow airport after he fled the United States for giving up information on a government surveillance program.
Rep. Amash said if Snowden hadn't revealed that information, Congress wouldn't have known about it despite arguments to the contrary. "Members of Congress were not really aware on the whole about [...] the extent to which [these programs] were being used."
However, Amash went on to say that Snowden may be doing things overseas that "we would find problematic" and "dangerous."
According to a new Quinnipiac poll, 55 percent of Americans agree with the congressman that Snowden is a whistleblower. Former Director of the CIA and NSA, Gen. Michael Hayden, disagreed with that assessment. "A whistleblower is someone who raises concerns within our government in order to affect change."
Gen. Hayden said there is no evidence that Snowden alerted his bosses about his concerns, but instead went to news outlets which revealed information to America's enemies. "He's made it more difficult for our security services to keep America safe."
He slammed Russia's move to grant Snowden asylum as "a slap in the face."
