CNN's Dana Bash talked with Glenn Greenwald Wednesday about a new statement put out by National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. That interview was then immediately followed by one with Harvard Law School's Alan Dershowitz, who sharply criticized both Snowden and Greenwald:

"As far as Greenwald is concerned, he's an ideologue. I don't think he would have revealed this information if it had been critical of Venezuela or Cuba or the Palestinian Authority. You know, he doesn't like America. He doesn't like Western democracies. He's never met a terrorist he didn't like. So he's a very hard-left ideologue that uses this to serve his political agenda not simply to reveal information in a neutral way. That makes him very different from WikiLeaks, I think."

Greenwald, who could not respond to the attacks because his segment was over, had some words on Twitter.
