Andreessen calls Snowden a traitor, a viewpoint he claims is a minority view in Silicon Valley:
For me obviously he’s a traitor. If you look up in the encyclopedia ‘traitor,’ there’s a picture of Ed Snowden. He stole national security secrets and gave them to everyone on the planet.
Andreessen also continuies his criticism of President Obams response to the NSA revelations, noting there is no plan to help American companies that do business overseas:
As far as I can tell there’s no plan, there’s no strategy, there’s no tactics, there’s nothing. The Snowden reveals keep coming out. The [Obama] administration is letting the NSA out to dry. They’re letting the American tech industry out to dry.
