Snowden in Possession of Thousands More Secret NSA Documents, Says Guardian Reporter

Emma Foehringer Merchant

On Sunday, Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald, who broke the Edward Snowden story, told the Associated Press that Snowden still has thousands of unreleased NSA documents that would “allow somebody who read them to know exactly how the NSA does what it does, which would in turn allow them to evade that surveillance or replicate it,” though he said that Snowden insists that these “blueprints” not be released to the public. On Friday, Snowden came out of hiding at the Moscow airport, offering to keep any further U.S. intelligence secrets to himself if Russian President Vladimir Putin allows him to stay in the country until he can seek asylum in Latin America.
