NSA Whistleblower Reveals More Secrets In Interview With South China Morning Post

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 7:22

Whistleblower Edward Snowden has spoken with the South China Morning Post today and revealed more NSA crimes and spying secrets in an exclusive interview in which he announced loudly and clearly that he is not there to hide, but to expose the crimes of the United States government. As more and more US government crimes are revealed and the criminal element exposed, the criminal element within this government has quickly lost legitimacy around the world with most clear thinking and law abiding human beings disgusted with government war crimes being committed around the world in our names.

Surveillance whistleblower Edward Snowden has spoken for the first time since blowing his own cover in an exclusive interview with the South China Morning Post.

The ex-CIA analyst has been holed up in secret locations in Hong Kong since fleeing Hawaii ahead of highly sensitive leaks revealing details of US top-secret phone and internet surveillance of its citizens.

Today, he reveals:

  • more explosive details on US surveillance targets

  • his plans for the immediate future

  • the steps he claims the US has taken since he broke cover in Hong Kong

  • his fears for his family

The 29-year-old was working for defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton at the National Security Agency (NSA), the biggest spy surveillance organisation in the world, when he leaked information claiming the US was systematically seizing vast amounts of phone and web data. Snowden fled to Hong Kong after using Britain’s Guardian newspaper to expose the agency’s PRISM program which gives officials easy access to data held by nine of the world’s top internet companies, including Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Skype.

“People who think I made a mistake in picking HK as a location misunderstand my intentions. I am not here to hide from justice; I am here to reveal criminality,” Snowden told the Post earlier today.
