Peter King: Edward Snowden a "Defector" Who Should Be Brought Back to U.S. for Prosecution

"dangerous to the country," King says, referring to Snowden, not himself or Obama or the other clowns in Washington


Edward Snowden, the man behind of one of the biggest leaks in the history of U.S. intelligence, is a former technical assistant for the CIA who is now holed up in a Hong Kong hotel, in danger of running out of money and hoping to find asylum somewhere in the world.

U.S. Rep. Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee's Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, called Snowden "a defector" who should be turned over to the United States with an eye toward harsh prosecution.
