PressTV: Guardian reporter to reveal more about US spying programs

The Guardian’s reporter Glenn Greenwald

The Guardian reporter who published the revelations of former US spy Edward Snowden about America’s global surveillance programs has pledged to disclose more in his upcoming book.

The book, which is still untitled, will be published in March 2014 by Metropolitan Books, a unit of the Macmillan group.

The book will contain “new revelations exposing the extraordinary cooperation of private industry and the far-reaching consequences of the government’s program, both domestically and abroad,” a statement by the publisher said.

Glenn Greenwald, the writer of the book, and his colleague Ewen MacAskill interviewed Snowden, a former contractor at the National Security Agency, over several days in Hong Kong after his arrival from the US.

Greenwald is an investigative journalist who has been covering NSA surveillance programs for more than a decade.

Snowden said the NSA collected data on phone calls of all Americans, spied on all the Internet traffic across the world, checked billions of text messages of Chinese cell phone users and checked the communication by European Union offices in the US and Europe.

The top-secret documents leaked by Snowden disclosed the NSA’s PRISM program in which the agency acquired data from Internet giants like Microsoft, Google and Facebook.

However, since arriving in Moscow on June 23, he has stopped the revelations.

According to Metropolitan, Greenwald is the only reporter to have been given the complete set of Snowden’s documents.

    I have just lost respect for Greenwald,, while Snowden is in exile his life at risk Greenwald wants to make big bucks from what is likely to be a best seller with revelations that came from Snowdon. shame you Greenwald you are a journalist who should be exposing all this through the Media shocking behavior you should be riding above those you report about. I wouldn’t even know your name if it weren’t for Snowden giving you an exclusive, Shame on you for plugging your book!

      Nan, do you know for sure that Snowden is not completely aware of what Greenwald is doing? I can’t imagine that he doesn’t . . . Hugs, ~jean
