Fox News strategic analyst Ralph Peters on Monday said that Edward Snowden, the man behind the biggest leak in the history of the National Security Agency (NSA) deserves to be executed for his crimes.

“Now you’ve got this 29-year-old high school dropout whistleblower making foreign policy for our country, our security policy,” he told Fox News host Brian Kilmeade. “It’s sad, Brian. We’ve made treason cool. Betraying your country is kind of a fashion statement. He wants to be the national security Kim Kardashian. He cites Bradley Manning as a hero.”

"I mean, we need to get very, very serious about treason. And oh, by the way, for treason -- as in the case of Bradley Manning or Edwards Snowden -- you bring back the death penalty."
