Military Intelligence Head: Must Assume Russia Knows U.S. Secrets

CNN reports that “in the world of military strategy, every contingency must be examined, especially the worst-case scenario.”  

“Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, made that clear when he told National Public Radio in an interview broadcast Friday how U.S. officials must plan for the possibility that Vladimir Putin’s Russia has access to American battle plans and other secrets possibly taken by classified leaker Edward Snowden.”  

“‘If I’m concerned about anything, I’m concerned about defense capabilities that he may have stolen from where he worked, and does that knowledge then get into the hands of our adversaries — in this case, of course, Russia,’ Flynn said of the former National Security Agency contractor who fled to Moscow to seek asylum.”
