Huffington Post today:
Director of the National Security Agency Gen. Keith Alexander doesn't believe amnesty is the answer to ending Edward Snowden's leaks of classified documents.
In an interview that aired on CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday, Alexander likened the scenario to a hostage situation: If an individual was to shoot 10 of 50 hostages, Alexander explained, he shouldn't be set free in exchange for the 40 remaining hostages.
"I think people have to be held accountable for their actions," Alexander said. "Because what we don't want is the next person to do the same thing, race off to Hong Kong and to Moscow with another set of data knowing they can strike the same deal." ...

How can anyone have a National Security Agency run by this clown?

1) There is absolutely no parallel between a hostage situation, in which people are killed, and a leaking of secrets one or two at a time. Go back to whatever thing you call an office and re-think this.

2) You are the idiot in charge of the system that hired Mr. Snowden, that gave him clearance to do what he did, and gave him unrestricted access to your secrets; why are not you held accountable for your actions?
Why in heaven's name would anyone in their right mind talk to you about how to put a reasonable end on this affair? 

Not a mention that Mr. Snowden struck a blow against an intolerable abuse of power by General Alexander.

The secrets would not have been stolen had they not been representative of the worst possible type of illegal and immoral surveillance, the fruit of a government within a government gone wild.
