When Edward Snowden leaked classified information from the CIA in 2013, he threw the intelligence community into a tailspin, and former CIA Director James Woolsey believes it cost lives in Paris.
Interviewed on CNN on Thursday, Woolsey said this:
“I think the blood of a lot of these French young people is on his hands…It’s still a capital crime, and I would give him the death sentence, and I would prefer to see him hanged by the neck until he’s dead, rather than merely electrocuted.”
His point was the terrorists knew, thanks to Snowden, how the intelligence community worked with those in other countries to track them. Therefore, they were able to keep their plans secret.
