What a HUGE story this is manifesting into.
Mr. Snowden released a extensive amount of NSA and GCHQ material , via Glen Greenwald of The Guardian. Another famed whistleblower – Daniel Ellsberg (Pentagon Papers) – says there has not been in American history a more important leak.
The scale and scope of these revelations is unparalleled to any other leak in American history.
Mr. Greenwald’s initial report focused on US governments monitoring of Verizon’s communications – millions of Americans on a daily basis without it being disclosed to a large majority of Congress, let alone the American citizenry.
