Litt, thank you for appearing before us today, especially on short notice. People at the NSA in particular have heard a constant public drumbeat about a laundry list of nefarious things they are alleged to be doing to spy on Americans, all of them wrong; the misperceptions have been great, yet they keep their heads down and keep working every day to keep us safe. And General Alexander, please convey our thanks to your team for continuing every day, despite much misinformation about the quality of their work, and thank them for all of us for continuing to work to protect America. I also want to take this moment to thank General Alexander, who has been extended as national security adviser in one way or another three different times. This is a very difficult job at a very difficult time in our history. And for the general to accept those extensions of his military service to protect this nation, I think with all of the, again, misinformation out there, I want to thank you for that. Thank you for your patriotism.

And available through this archive using a advanced digital search tool, I could not find some of the documents so as to have made their way into broadcast view, leading me to conclude so as to there must be a second leaker somewhere. At the time of so as to revelation, Der Spiegel simply attributed the information to Snowden and other anonymous sources. Back in Moscow, Snowden recalls boarding a plane for Hong Kong, on his way to reveal himself as the leaker of a almighty cache of secrets and wondering whether his risk would be worth it. President Obama has personally addressed the issue, Congress has taken up the issue, and the Supreme Court has hinted that it may take ahead the issue of warrantless wiretapping. Broadcast opinion has also shifted in favor of curtailing mass surveillance.
