Leak assertion is suspect

James Clapper has alleged in evidence before the Senate Intelligence Committee that intelligence leakers like Edward Snowden are a greater threat to American security than terrorists.

Clapper has had a long career in intelligence, and is now in charge of and has an interest in consolidating and enlarging a vast intelligence empire. As a result, he has a mindset that makes his response to any intelligence question predictable, even when, as in this case, it is unsupported by verifiable evidence.
