Snowden: Not All Spying is Bad


edward-snowdenIn a Q&A on his website, NSA leaker Edward Snowden answered Twitter-submitted questions about topics ranging from the threat on his life to returning to the United States. He said it’s not possible for him to return when “there’s no chance to have a fair trial,” and bashed the current whistleblower protection laws.

Snowden noted that some spying is warranted, but not mass surveillance.

He also negated a Reuters report, saying he never stole his coworkers’ passwords. Read more at Free Snowden.

    then they deserve to be spied on by Snowden
