New Snowden interview: NSA ‘collects all communications’ in United States
Monday, July 8, 2013
In a newly released interview with the Guardian filmed June 6 and released today, Edward Snowden accurately predicts how the U.S. government will react to his move to leak information on the National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance programs.
Snowden also makes it clear that “the NSA doesn’t limit itself to foreign intelligence.”
“It collects all communications that transit the United States,” Snowden said.
“There are literally no ingress or egress points in the continental United States where communications either enter or exit without being monitored, collected and analyzed,” Snowden said.
