I like his quote, "When people die, those that leaked information should be held accountable... I think there’s irreversible and significant damage to this nation. "
But what is more important than people? When does the military send people in to harm's way and maybe even to their death's? They do it to protect the Nation and The Constitution. When The President is sworn in he takes an oath to " preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States" Not individuals.
So I think that an excellent case could be made that when the NSA kills The Constitution, those that ran the program should be held responsible.
I think the NSA has caused significant damage to this country because what makes this country special is the constitutional limits on the engorgement,
