A 29 year old former CIA worker has revealed himself as the one who blew the whistle on the NSA for allegedly spying on it’s own citizens. In an interview with The Guardian, Ed Snowden says he was the leak to the Washington Post.
Snowden claims our government’s national security agencies were keeping tapping into the phone calls and emails of citizens who hadn’t even “done anything wrong.” He says he came forward because he believes Americans should be aware of what their government is doing and “decide if it’s right or wrong.”
Snowden may face criminal charges. He knows the CIA may be coming after him. Do you think he should be punished? Do you applaud what he did?
