Exposed US Crimes

The NSA whistle-blower behind one of the most explosive government leaks in US history has revealed he does not 'expect to see home again' as he faces the rest of his life on the run.
Edward Snowden spoke out as American officials desperately try to extradite him from his Hong Kong bolt hole so he can face trial for leaking details of a top-secret programme to harvest the personal information of millions of web users by one of the world's most notorious spy organisations.
Mr Snowden spoke to The Guardian and Washington Post newspapers from a hotel room in Hong Kong where he is on the run for an expose seen by many as being on a par with Wiki-Leaks whistle-blower Bradley Manning.
He said:'I think the sense of outrage that has been expressed is justified. It has given me hope that, no matter what happens to me, the outcome will be positive for America. I do not expect to see home again, though that is what I want.'
His flight to Hong Kong has sparked a political and diplomatic firestorm between America and China who have become locked in a custody battle for the 29-year-old former CIA technical assistant.
'All my options are bad,' he told the Guardian.'Yes, I could be rendered by the CIA. I could have people come after me. Or any of the third-party partners. They work closely with a number of other nations. Or they could pay off the Triads. Any of their agents or assets.
'We have got a CIA station just up the road – the consulate here in Hong Kong – and I am sure they are going to be busy for the next week. And that is a concern I will live with for the rest of my life, however long that happens to be.'
Revealing why he blew the whistle he said:'I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded. That is not something I am willing to support or live under.'

'The law is actually quite clear: if the British intelligence agencies are seeking to know the content of emails by people living in the UK, then they actually have to get lawful authority. Normally that means ministerial authority.'
Sir Malcolm's Intelligence and Security Committee will carry out a visit to Washington this week to meet representatives from the CIA and NSA, which was arranged before the Prism disclosures.
The former foreign secretary said it was 'perfectly well known' that 'in order to protect the public that does require, as President Obama said in Washington, some intrusion on privacy in certain circumstances'.
Mr Snowden has said he was content to sever his ‘very comfortable life’, which included a six-figure salary, a girlfriend, a home in Hawaii and his family, to shine a light on the NSA’s widening surveillance net.
He said:‘I’m willing to sacrifice all of that because I can’t in good conscience allow the US government to destroy privacy, internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building.’
NSA chiefs were ‘intent on making every conversation and every form of behaviour in the world known to them,’ he said.
