The United States bulk surveillance scandal is continuing unabated with further revelations about the NSA PRISM programme and the person who leaked information about it.
Speaking to the Guardian, which first broke the news about the pervasive US government surveillance that involves "direct access" to customer data from nine of the largest technology companies, 29-year old Edward Snowden who worked for the NSA for a decade said he blew the whistle on the scheme as a matter of principle.
Snowden said he wanted to inform the public of what he viewed as an "existential threat to democracy".
Money was not the motivation for Snowden, who said the US government had granted itself powers it is not entitled to and that there was no public oversight.
"The result is people like myself have the latitude to go further than they are allowed to," Snowden told the Guardian.

People generally get what they ask for.
Did folks expect something other than totalitarian tyranny when they voted for Obama?
We've always wanted a president that listened to the people.
Instead we got one that's listening in on everybody.
Big Brother is watching you.
