Trump's New CIA Pick Wants Snowden Dead

My First Disagreement With Trump
  • Long ago I knew this minute was coming. Trump is great on any number of issues, but on the 1984 Police Surveillance State Trump follows the standard Democrat-Republican party line that Big Brother is our friend.

(Reason)  -  Trump has reportedly picked Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) to run the Central Intelligence Agency. Would sort of CIA director would Mike Pompeo be?

It's absolutely the case that we have not been able to secure all the American information that we needed to, and that we've had the traitor Edward Snowden steal that information. He should be brought back from Russia and given due process, and I think the proper outcome would be that he would be given a death sentence for having put friends of mine, friends of yours, who served in the military today, at enormous risk, because of the information he stole and then released to foreign powers.
That is, needless to say, an extremely tendentious description of what Snowden did. But many people in the intelligence world feel the same way, and—if this is indeed the president-elect's pick to run the CIA—it doesn't look like that culture will change under Trump.
