'Sixty Minutes': NSA mentioned a possible deal for Edward Snowden

According to a Dec. 15 report on Yahoo News, Rick Ledgett, the NSA official in charge of determining the damage of the Edward Snowden leaking case, thinks that amnesty might be plausible in this case. He remarked on CBS “Sixty Minutes” Sunday night that the valuable information possessed by the former NSA employee is the equivalent of a "’roadmap’ of the US intelligence community's strengths and weaknesses.” In his opinion, it might be worth striking a deal. NSA chief General Keith Alexander, however, rejected any possibility of amnesty for Snowden.

The “Sixty Minutes” NSA coverage is getting very critical reviews on Twitter. CBS has now been labeled as the NSA public relations agency for their softball questioning of the NSA officials. It seems that there are new revelations of NSA invading the privacy of American citizens and world leaders almost daily. Many of these have come from the 1.5 million documents stolen by Snowden.

When a NSA official is discussing the value of cutting an amnesty deal with NSA leaker Edward Snowden, it raises interesting questions. Exactly what kind of information does Edward Snowden and the various entities who are helping him possess?
