` Pentagon has set-up a task force to handle `Snowden ‘ ‘Security Leaks ‘ and determine damage ‘

#AceSecurityNews says it will take two years of study and billions of dollars to overcome the loss of security to military operations that were revealed in documents taken by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, a top US military officer said.

Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey tells the House Armed Services Committee the Pentagon set up a task force to determine how the documents could be used, AP reported.

The task force will take two years due to the “magnitude of this challenge.”

The vast majority of the documents taken by Snowden reportedly related to US military capabilities.
