The 5 most damaging national security breaches of the past year Live

The national security breaches that emerged last year vary widely in both their origins and their aims: Some were deliberate assaults on America’s intelligence community stemming from external actors, others were committed by leakers claiming service to a cause, and still others were calculated releases of information intended for political gain. What binds them together is the way in which they have endangered America’s national security priorities. 


As the slideshow below illustrates, these breaches have tarnished America’s reputation, jeopardized partnerships with critical allies, and erased a valuable technological edge.
