Earlier today, The Guardian broke the news that Edward Snowden was their 29-year-old source behind the biggest intelligence leak in the NSA’s history. Snowden spoke out from his hiding place in Hong Kong on his motives, his uncertain future and why he never intended on hiding in the shadows.
Snowden told Glenn Greenwald,
“I don’t want to live in a society that does these sort of things.”
So he defected to Hong Kong – owned by China.
Where they censor the internet and jail dissidents.
