Langone compares the Snowden situation to the Daniel Ellsberg case of 42 years ago. As you may recall, Ellsberg, while employed by the RAND Corporation, started a national political controversy in 1971 when he released the Pentagon Papers, a top-secret study of U.S. government decision-making in relation to the Vietnam War, to The New York Times and other newspapers.

“What’s different about this young man [Snowden] now, letting this out? Tell me what’s different?, Langone asks.

Cavuto asks what Langone would do different with Edward Snowden. Hi reply, “I’d throw a party for him, I’d congratulate him, I’d thank him for helping to protect America’s privacy rights.”

“I think this young man showed a lot of courage and a lot of guts and grit. And I think we ought to be grateful to have kids like that in America who understand the meaning of freedom and privacy and liberty.”
