Former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden said millennials made it harder for the government to keep secrets and that they were "culturally" predisposed to leak information.
"I don't mean to judge them at all, but this group...simply have different understandings of the words loyalty, secrecy and transparency than, certainly, my generation did," Hayden said.

Hayden's interview aired a day after WikiLeaks published what it claim was a massive trove of CIA hacking tools that could turn smartphones and TVs into surveillance devices. Hayden said this was likely due to another millennial leaker.
WikiLeaks has not identified the source of the leaks, but hinted it was an insider.
While Manning and Snowden were both in their 20s when they leaked their information, other famous anonymous sources were much older. Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971, was 40 at the time.
Mark Felt, better known as "Deep Throat," was nearly 60 when he spoke out.
While Hayden argues millennials are disposed to favor leaks, they are the most likely generation to trust the government with their personal information, according to a 2016 Gallup poll.
