We've discussed this in passing previously. It's pretty bad.

[EDIT]

Here are Snowden's replies to this report -

"Mistakes were made:" Less than 24 hours after releasing report claiming I lied, HPSCI is walking back its report.

[/EDIT]

The guy who said Snowden should have come to him is subject in this story:

NSA Watchdog Removed for Whistleblower Retaliation http://www.pogo.org/blog/2016/12/intelligence-community-land...

Some of the things where they charge him with lying or exaggerating are themselves duplicitous, at best. We discussed a lot of those things in detail back here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13158163

In particular this claim from the report is both ridiculous and downright contemptible on multiple levels: "He claimed to have left A-y basic training because of broken legs when in fact he washed out because of shin splints."
