Former CIA Director James Woolsey had harsh words Tuesday for anyone thinking about giving Edward Snowden amnesty, and argued the NSA leaker should be hanged if hes ever tried and convicted of treason.
Woolsey, along with former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Hugh Shelton, spoke Tuesday in Washington in an interview with Fox News.
I think giving him amnesty is idiotic, Woolsey said. He should be prosecuted for treason. If convicted by a jury of his peers, he should be hanged by his neck until he is dead."

Yes, cannot have those dastardly Freepers knowing that we watch their every post!
These people are sick control freaks. Snowden deserves thanks for exposing the Orwellian state we live in, regardless of the not-so subtle methods he used. I hope he marries a nice Russian girl and they are never caught by Obama’s thugs.
Any word on how Woolsey feels about the people who were wholesale spying on innocent American citizens?
He should be prosecuted for treason. If convicted by a jury of his peers, he should be hanged by his neck until he is dead.”........................................ Hmmmm? Judge Isaac C. Parker lives! Why not just try him now, and when he comes back you hang him at the airport. Will we do that to everyone who commits Treason, or just Snowden? s/ I’m sure we can come up with a list of individuals who we’d like to hang for treason, ask any Viet Nam Vet. and I’m sure Snowden won’t be the first name they come up with.
If the American People are the enemies of The United States, then Snowden is a traitor.
so he wants snowden hanged for exposing that the goverment is committing treason. He should look in a mirror to see a traitor that should be hanged
Honesty is the best policy which the US government doesn’t understand for the past 100 years.
If you can’t trust a disgruntled ex-spook, who can you trust?
No, Snowden revealed operational techniques and classified/confidential sources, meetings, etc.
While some of the NSA programs are out of wack, and need to be curtailed, reformed or abolished, others are lifesaving and need to be kept. However, secrecy is the most important part of intelligence operations and Snowden destroyed that advantage we had.
Nobody gives a damn about your phone conversations. I had to tell hardcore communists that 40 years ago. They were paranoid beyond belief. Small fry are usually not important in subversive operations unless you track them to the big boys (been there, done that).
The damage that Snowden has done to America’s security will cost us lives in the future. Our enemies never sleep and they are always looking for chinks in our armor through which to attack us. If 9/11 taught us nothing else, it is that they were watching, for years, found the chink, and killed 3,000 people, brought down 7 major buildings, 4 planes, and damaged the Pentagon only because they couldn’t see the White House or the Capital.
That plane literally passed within less that a mile of my house and the explosion of it hitting the Pentagon shook it.
If they are reading this or listening to my phone, fine. They can also pay for the pizza I ordered a while ago. That is the least they can do to keep me happen.
The US government think they are all little angels but they make the mafia look like choir boys!
I’ll take my liberty over security.
I was reading on Citizen Wells that a bill is being pondered about removing the death penalty for treason. Congress putting in a loophole “just in case”?
Still batting a .1000
John Fn Kerry?
BHO, Jr (aka Barry Serotoro, or whatever he goes by now)
Trust the gubmint? Not a chance.
What has been the price of Obozo’s Treason?
In lives, property & money?
But, unfortunately, your sound reasoning will not get past the filter created by the tinfoil hats so many people wear. Snowden didn’t just tell Americans that the NSA was listening to phones, emails etc, he told America’s enemies how its done.
Shouldn’t the same sentence be enacted for known traitors like John Kerry?
Since obamas a liar then what is the us government?The 2nd coming?
