NSA Whistleblower Speaks Out: Claims NSA is Operating Outside the Law

The 29-year-old whistleblower that ripped open the NSA’s cover for an operation code named Prism—an intrusive surveillance system that scans the servers of almost 50 American tech companies to glean data on Americans—speaks out and explains why he leaked agency abuses to the media.

Edward Snowden accuses the NSA of “subverting the power of government” and said that he could wiretap anyone anytime.  Snowden debunks the “nothing to hide” mantra of the Big Brother, pro-government surveillance crowd.

Watch the interview:

In another article, the New York Times reports that several large high-tech American companies capitulated to government demands and provided data to the NSA, even though, as late as last Wednesday, several of these companies denied doing so.
