    More than 6,000 NSA cryptologists have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Twenty have died in the line of duty helping our troops accomplish their missions.
    The men and women of NSA take an oath to the Constitution. As private citizens themselves, NSA employees are acutely aware of the importance of upholding the Fourth Amendment, and they uphold it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
    We encourage the American public to work with us to define the way ahead in balancing transparency and national security. We embrace public dialogue.

He has stated he had been planning to make disclosures about NSA surveillance programs at the time, but he decided to wait because he "believed in Obama's promises".

For the 2012 election, political donation records indicate that he contributed to the primary campaign of Republican candidate Ron Paul
