Edward Snowden vows more disclosures about U.S. surveillance
Shashank Bengali and Ken DilanianWASHINGTON — Defiant and apparently unbowed by threats of prosecution, former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden vowed Monday to release more secrets about U.S. intelligence surveillance systems that he described as "nakedly, aggressively criminal."
Snowden, who has been hiding in Hong Kong, said NSA analysts routinely obtain emails and other Internet communications of Americans as part of the cyber-spying agency's surveillance of global telecommunications and Web traffic.
Writing in a chat on the website of Britain's Guardian newspaper, Snowden said U.S. communications were "collected and viewed on a daily basis" by NSA analysts operating without a specific warrant. "They excuse this as 'incidental' collection, but at the end of the day, someone at NSA still has the content of your communications."
