Members of Congress say they're not impressed with Edward Snowden's recent publicity blitz calling for an end to mass surveillance and declaring that he's already accomplished his mission.
Republican Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the release of classified documents jeopardized the safety of troops in Afghanistan and gave nations such as China and Russia valuable insight into how America's intelligence services operate.
The two, speaking on "Fox News Sunday," were responding to Snowden's recent comments from Russia that he was working to improve the NSA.
