Statement from the ODNI Spokesperson on the Latest Report from The Guardian

We have seen the latest report from The Guardian that identifies an individual claiming to have disclosed information about highly classified intelligence programs in recent days.  Because the matter has been referred to the Department of Justice, we refer you to the Department of Justice for comment on any further specifics of the unauthorized disclosure of classified information by a person with authorized access.  The Intelligence Community is currently reviewing the damage that has been done by these recent disclosures.  Any person who has a security clearance knows that he or she has an obligation to protect classified information and abide by the law.
