US intelligence directors delivered their annual Worldwide Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Community to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper listed 'cyber' as the top global threat, with Russia as the first country of possible nations to "likely be responsible for offensive cyber operations" against the US National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, who is seeking asylum in Russia amid leaking US intelligence documents, was the center of discussions. All five directors in attendance overwhelmingly agreed that Snowden's leaks have threatened US security. RT's Perianne Boring takes a look at the report and the impact of the NSA leaks on the battlefield, and Liz Wahl talks to former CIA analyst Ray McGovern for more.
