Long Reacts to Snowden, NSA Spying

Missouri US Congressman Billy Long doesn't mince words when talking about Edward Snowden, the whistleblower who revealed how much the federal government is spying on Americans:

"A whistleblower stands behind his information. A traitor stands behind a foreign embassy. And the fact that he's hiding out in Hong Kong... (the government is) gonna be out to get ahold of him as soon as possible."

Long tells News Talk KZRG he's happy the spying has been outed, but he would've rather seen Snowden come to Congress with the information than the foreign press. Some in Washington want him charged with treason.
