Eight years ago, Edward Snowden revealed government secrets. He told the world that America, illegally, spies on Americans, and most everyone in the world.
While spymasters told Congress and the public that the NSA did not spy on Americans, Snowden, on the inside, working for the CIA and then the NSA, could see the truth. “I saw everything… we were capturing everything that your family is doing online, that your friends are doing online,” he said. “This became such a concern to me, that I was willing to risk a great deal to tell people,” he adds. He did risk a great deal. Now he’s in exile.
