Former U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss on Edward Snowden: 'We need to hang him on the court house square'


“This is real and the worst part of it — not unlike the Snowden incident, which I hope none of you have sympathy for him because we need to hang him on the courthouse square as soon as we get our hands on him — but just like we’re gonna lose American lives as a result of this breach."

In a response to a question about the nation's largest federal data breach, former U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Georgia, recently got a bit off track and said that Edward Snowden should be hanged for leaking NSA documents. (via Buzzfeed)
