An award for Edward Snowden

To some former NSA contractor Edward Snowden is a criminal, a traitor, a fugitive from the law. But to others, Snowden is nothing short of a hero and a courageous whistleblower. Now, he has been honored by a group of former U.S. intelligence officers. They gave him the  'Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence' award, named for a late CIA analyst. Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern was there and met with Snowden. Anderson spoke with McGovern on the phone.
