NSA Leaker Snowden Has More Sensitive Information about U.S. Surveillance, Journalist Says

NSA Leaker Edward Snowden has information that could cause more damage to the U.S. than “anyone else has ever had in the history” of the country, according to the Guardian journalist who reported about the widespread surveillance.

Columnist Glenn Greenwald said the U.S. should be careful.

“But that’s not his goal,” Greenwald told the newspaper. “His objective is to expose software that people around the world use without knowing what they are exposing themselves to, without consciously agreeing to surrender their rights to privacy. He has a huge number of documents that would be very harmful to the U.S. government if they were made public.”

Snowden’s information could be described basically as “an instruction manual” for how the NSA conducts surveillance, Greenwald said.
