The most well-known whistleblower in the world, former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, said in the interview that he wasn’t cooperating with the Russian government at all, and had given them no secret files after almost a year of asylum there. NBC News was told that Snowden had no relationship with the Russian government: the whistleblower received no support by the government, was not taking any money from it, and he was not a spy.
On the other hand, Keith Alexander, an ex-NSA director, claimed that it was very unlikely that the security services of the Russian Federation haven’t squeezed Edward for secrets. It is more likely that Snowden was being manipulated by Russian intelligence.
Edward Snowden said that he would like to come back to the United States if the country welcomes him without threatening to spent all life behind the bars, and insists that he destroyed classified content before even transiting to a Moscow airport, where he was prevented from onward travel. In the interview, he said that he brought nothing to Russia, and therefore could give them nothing.
The former NSA contractor briefly criticized the crackdown on freedom of expression under Russian President Putin. As Snowden claims to be a defender of privacy and civil liberties, he admitted it was very “frustrating” to “end up stuck” in a country where privacy and civil rights are being challenged in “deeply unfair ways”.
In the meantime, Secretary of State John Kerry invited Edward Snowden to “man up and come back to the US” where he could find himself locked up for the rest of his life. Apparently, Edward Snowden wouldn’t just “walk into a jail cell”. So, if his one-year asylum in Russia (which expires on August 1) is going to run out, then he would apply for an extension, as he just has no other options.

|I think it would be ver y very stupid of Mr. Snowden to EVER set foot back on US soil again...they consider him a traitor...no matter what he says or claims! The US are not going to throw him in jail...he will get the same usuall treatment all spies and former intelligence operators who blow whistles and join the "other" side get...they will make him dissapear never to be heard from or seen again! He'll problably get murdered within the first 24 hours of arrivel back in the US...his body either cremated or end up somewhere in the cement of a foundation of a building somewhere...oldskool mafia style (not unlike you see happen in movies like Goodfellas and Casino) xD|
The best option Mr. Snowden has (if he doesn't want to get murdered by his own former coleagues and most likely get tortured before dying)...is to stay in Russia for the rest of his life, and give all the secrets he has/knows about the US government and its intelligence agency's to the Russian goverment and suck up to president Putin and hope he will remain welcome there...find a quiet spot and a nice Russian wife...learn how to speak Russian...and live out his new life quiet, anonymous and far away from the media and prying eyes! NO cell phones or any kind of internet either (or the NSA/CIA satelites might be able to track him down)
|Serves him right, I hope he continues to wish to be back in the US, his home. He didn't have to do the things he did..|
If his goal was to create distrust among countries then gratz, he did it. If there's a war among countries because of him and millions die.. It's all on him
|@2 If you think a war will come because he *documented* what every foreign intelligence agency and hard criminal ALREADY KNEW then you have no idea what's going on.|
He had to do what he did to obtain and release evidence that can be used to prosecute the rogue traitors in government who are levying a cold war on the public with the aid of private corporations.
Other NSA analysts like Binney or Russel Tice have blown the whistle on this stuff before but they never got the incriminating documentation to prove it's treason and they still went through hell. If he had done it like Binney it wouldn't have made headlines and he might be worse off and the only other alternative would be to allow treason to continue.
|I am sure he told the Russians almost everything|
|That's ridiculous. If he had told the Russians or anyone else anything they didn't know already, you never would have heard from him. He'd have sold the data for a large sum and quietly disappeared either on purpose or by asassination.|
Instead he gave it to the media, ruining any chance at selling the data.
|if you believe that well then your most likely an idiot who would believe that bin laden was killed.||
