Snowden: Mission Accomplished?

He's been referred to as everything from hero to traitor but you can just call him, "indoor cat."

In a revealing, 14 hour interview with the Washington Post, former NSA contractor Edward Snowden opens up about the fallout over his decision to leak classified documents on the government's snooping program.

The man who conducted that interview, Barton Gellman, joined CNN's Dana Bash to talk about Snowden's life on the run and the consequences his actions have had for both the NSA and the Obama administration.
