The Guardian journalist who first reported Edward Snowden's disclosures of U.S. surveillance programs says the former NSA analyst has "very specific blueprints of how the NSA do what they do." Glenn Greenwald says Snowden has "literally thousands of documents" that constitute "basically the instruction manual for how the NSA is built," but that Snowden has insisted details from the documents not be made public. Greenwald says he doesn't think national security would be harmed if the secret documents were to be published, but he added that he did think revelations from them could harm the U.S. government.
Key congressional Republican Michael McCaul said that the Obama administration must step up efforts and exert "any and all pressure" on Russia to get it to hand over Edward Snowden, the former U.S. spy agency contractor turned fugitive leaker.
Fugitive and former U.S. spy contractor Edward Snowden controls dangerous information that could become the United States' "worst nightmare" if revealed. Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, said in a newspaper interview that the U.S. government should be careful in its pursuit of the former computer analyst. "Snowden has enough information to cause harm to the U.S. government in a single minute than any other person has ever had."
