NSA spies on more US citizens than Russians – Snowden

Standard

The NSA gathers more data on American citizens than it does about foreigners, Edward Snowden has said. During an acceptance speech for a “truth-telling” prize, the whistleblower attacked NSA head, James Clapper, for lying about US surveillance.“We watch our own people more closely than anyone else in the world,” said Edward Snowden, appearing in a live video link at the 11th annual Ridenhour Prizes ceremony in Washington. He was greeted by a standing ovation from the audience when he received the Ridenhour Award for “Truth-Telling.”During his speech, the whistleblower said he leaked thousands of classified government documents, detailing the NSA’s mass surveillance programs because “it was the right thing to do, and now I see I’m not the only one who felt that way.” “I thought the most likely outcome would be spending the rest of my life in prison,” said Snowden.
