    The NSA leak has been revealed.

    Edward Snowden: the whistleblower behind revelations of NSA surveillance

    The 29-year-old source behind the biggest intelligence leak in US history explains his motives, his uncertain future and why he never intended on hiding in the shadows

    The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell.

    The Guardian, after several days of interviews, is revealing his identity at his request. From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. "I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong," he said.

    Snowden will go down in history as one of America's most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. He is responsible for handing over material from one of the world's most secretive organisations – the NSA.

    In a note accompanying the first set of documents he provided, he wrote: "I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions," but "I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant."

    The Daily Beast is Garbage except for David Frum, who has actually stopped posting there.

    At this point, it's about on the same level as RedState for bias.

    This'll get branded as "Obama surveillence" so that the next administration can blow it off as Obamas bag and carry it on possibly ramp it up.

    It should be "state surveillence" because it is, regardless of who is involved in the changing of the guard charade its the deep state that goes on and wants these powers.

    Perhaps Christopher Nolan was privy to PRISM.

    Same goes for Hideo Kojima's vision laid out in Metal Gear Solid 2, with Arsenal Gear and The Patriots/GW AI programs.

    obama defending nsa. my loyalty is with the old obama, not this person serving now. i voted for obama because he was what bush was not but now he is proving to be exactly that. i have nothing to hide, but yes, i d be stupid to not see where this is heading and if there were talks of impeaching him, some kind of wagon, make room because now I am on it.

    now im incredibly sad for the whistle blower and the way our country is.

    It's a shame the whistle-blower risks prosecution. Absolutely insane. I wonder what else compelled him to come forth on the record though. People are venerating him for being an American Hero but I suspect his principles weren't the only thing causing him to give in; methinks something else about the States got to him as well.

    I'm really not shocked or surprised by this. I've always been appropriately paranoid and assumed the NSA and whoever else could listen to our phone conversations, read our emails, etc. at will.
