Former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich told NBC News on Sunday that if millennials ever experience a “major attack,” they will change their tune about the National Security Agency.

“The first time there’s a major attack on the United States, all the millennials are going to decide they really want the government to protect them,” Gingrich told “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

Gingrich refers to the millennials (those borm from 1982 to 2004) as “arrogrant” and wrong to praise NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden as a hero and condemn the mass surveillance of Americans.

“The core idea here that one person has the right to judge very complex issues more than the commander in chief, more than the Congress, more than the Secretary of Defense, is an act of such extraordinary arrogance that it threatens the very fabric of our national security,” he said. “The precedent he sets, if we decide it’s okay to be a Snowden, then we are really going to have dramatically crippled our capacities.”

Snowden is said to have committed treason according to Gingrich. In a recent interview Snowden detailed more issues of motive etc…while revealing that the NSA can access everyone’s cell phones even if they’re turned off.
