BenSwann.Com: Plenty More NSA-leaked Info To Come Says Greenwald; Anti-NSA Bill With 117 Sponsors

To spy or not to spy, that debate is what’s playing out around the world and particularly in the US since whistleblower Edward Snowden’s storm of National Security Agency (NSA) leaks to journalists and those alike. It would seem that debate over intrusive government spying has yet to be concluded. And with already over 200,000 documents released by Snowden, what’s to come is leaving officials on the edge of their seats.
Giving some indication as to what comes next, Snowden’s story-breaking journalist Glenn Greenwald told Chaos Communication Congress (CCC), an annual conference for international hackers and computer gurus, that information about the NSA is still coming, and a lot of it. The former Guardian journalist told listeners that while it’s important to cover these leaks, it’s as equally important to understand exactly what they’re writing about.
Other speakers included Julian Assange who phoned in to discuss privacy and government issues. Assange told the conference that privacy advocates and hackers should take it upon themselves to fight against government surveillance. And although the outlook for privacy backers may look grim, considering the massive leakage by Snowden showing the destruction of privacy, Greenwald had positive words in the end.
