Fox News analyst says NSA leaker should be executed
In another example of how the kerfuffle over NSA surveillance programs has blurred the lines between the left and right of the political spectrum, we have THIS:
Fox News analyst Ralph Peters [above] said Monday that Edward Snowden’s leaks constituted “treason” punishable by execution.
Peters was speaking to Brian Kilmeade on “Fox and Friends,” and argued that no Americans have been hurt by the secret government surveillance programs that Snowden exposed.
“Now you’ve got this 29-year-old high school dropout whistleblower making foreign policy for our country, our security policy,” he lamented. “It’s sad, Brian. We’ve made treason cool. Betraying your country is kind of a fashion statement. He wants to be the national security Kim Kardashian. He cites Bradley Manning as a hero.”
Peters continued, “I mean, we need to get very, very serious about treason. And oh by the way, for treason — as in the case of Bradley Manning or Edwards Snowden — you bring back the death penalty.”
