Greenwald: "The US Government Should Be On Its Knees Every Day Praying That Nothing Happens To Snowden"

Edward Snowden may be America's most persona non grata in the entire world, but he has an insurance policy against "accidents": a treasure trove of supposedly damaging secrets about the US that will hit the public domain if something were to happen to the 30 year old whistleblower. A trove is so damaging that according to Glenn Greenwald, Snowden "poses more of a threat to the U.S. than anyone in the country's history." Well, maybe a threat to the "government" which now only represents the interests of various corporations and Wall Street, but certainly not to what the US was supposed to be before it was hijacked by special interests, lobbies and the creature from Jekyll Island.

Excerpt from interview with Glenn Greenwald:

Interviewer: Beyond the revelations about the spying system performance in general, what extra information has Snowden?

Greenwald: Snowden has enough information to cause more damage to the U.S. government in a minute alone than anyone else has ever had in the history of the United States. But that's not his goal.

His objective is to expose software that people around the world use without knowing that they are exposing themselves, without consciously agreeing to surrender their rights to privacy.

He has a huge number of documents that would be very harmful to the U.S. government if they were made public.
