National Security Agency director Keith Alexander said on Sunday that whistleblower Edward Snowden betrayed the trust of Americans and defended the broad surveillance programs as necessary to prevent another terrorist attack.
As Snowden evaded an attempt on Sunday by Washington to have him arrested in Hong Kong, General Alexander told ABC's This Week: "This is an individual who is not acting, in my opinion, with noble intent ... What Snowden has revealed has caused irreversible and significant damage to our country and to our allies."
Alexander said the NSA surveillance programs Snowden had disclosed to the Guardian were tightly overseen and disputed statements from members of the Senate intelligence committee that they had not played a unique role in preventing terrorist attacks.

They couldn’t prevent Boston....they are more concerned with going after Tea Partiers than Muslim terrorists.
Also irreparable damage to NSA’s reputation
And even more concerned with their fat, taxpayer funded pensions.
I'll take my chances with the terrorists - the likelihood of surviving them are better than a ubiquitous, omnipotent government that considers me their enemy.
Nossir. Reverse the subjects in that phrase:
"Whistleblower Edward Snowden said that the National Security Agency betrayed the trust of Americans."
There, that's better.
Snowden is a distraction.
Pay no attention to the constitution shredder behind the curtain.
He can’t tell us how he caused the damage because that’s a secret. We just need to trust him.
My default position, in the absence of any evidence, is the government is lying.
There, fixed it.
A 29 year old drop out who worked for a private NSA contractor has been able to damage America’s security in an irreversible manner. How many others of the tens of thousands of NSA and private NSA contract employees are in a similar position to do damage. Perhaps we should rethink the whole intelligence structure in America.
They’re just building an espionage case against him.
American Citizen: Obama has caused irreversible damage to U.S.
The NSA under the direction of the monkey-eared Kenyan has done irreversible damage to the US.
All Snowden has done is chip at the foundations of surveillance.
People would bitch a storm if we weren’t watching.
Now the very people that are offended have their nose up everyone’s business.
Better yet how many of those contractors are Chinese nationals anyway?
I’d also like to know why no attention is being given to the fact that James Clapper was an executive with Booz Allen (the company that Snowden worked for)? I wonder what Clapper’s stock looked like when the company won that $6 billion contract.
The State Department are going out of their way to bring Muslims into America, expose the borders as folly, and leave the VISA system open for abuse. So, Mr. Keith Alexander, WTF are you talking about?
“NSA director: Edward Snowden has caused irreversible damage to US”
Yeah, so what. So has Obama.
