Snowden: Mission Accomplished?

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

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.
