Australia: 'Snowden a criminal' says an uninformed Dennis Richardson



Defence Department secretary Dennis Richardson says fugitive US defence contractor Edward Snowden should be regarded as a common criminal, not a whistle-blower.

Mr Richardson, the former head of the Australian Security intelligence Organisation (ASIO), said he became irritated every time he saw a reference to Snowden's disclosure of US intelligence information as whistleblowing.

'I thought whistle-blowers revealed things that were illegal,' the uninformed Mr Richardson told an Australian Strategic Policy Institute dinner in Canberra on Tuesday despite the fact that Mr Snowden did in-fact reveal intelligence regarding the illegal spying by the NSA.

'As far as I am concerned Snowden is probably nothing more than a garden-variety criminal.'
The New World Order cheerleader continued.

Mr Snowden, a former US defence contractor, revealed details of secret US surveillance programs that were later published worldwide. He's currently in hiding in Russia, where he has been granted asylum for a year.
