German Television does first Edward Snowden Interview German Television Channel NDR does an exclusive interview with Edward Snowden. However, it was uploaded on LiveLeak because, evidently LiveLeak believes the German Television thinks the rest of the world isn't interested in Edward Snowden.

Conspiracy: Theory and Practice The greatest conspiracies are open and notorious -- not theories, but practices expressed through law and policy, technology, and finance. Conspiracies are more often than not announced in public and with a modicum of pride.

Without encryption, we will lose all privacy. This is our new battleground In the midst of the greatest computer security crisis in history, the US government, along with the governments of the UK and Australia, is attempting to undermine the only method that currently exists for reliably protecting the world's information: encryption. Should they succeed in their quest to undermine encryption, our public infrastructure and private lives will be rendered permanently unsafe.

Inside The Assassination Complex Unrestrained power may be many things, but it's not American. It is in this sense that the act of whistleblowing increasingly has become an act of political resistance. The whistleblower raises the alarm and lifts the lamp, inheriting the legacy of a line of Americans that begins with Paul Revere. In the final calculus there is but one figure that matters: the individual citizen. There are more of us than there are of them.

Statement from Edward Snowden in Moscow One week ago I left Hong Kong after it became clear that my freedom and safety were under threat for revealing the truth. My continued liberty has been owed to the efforts of friends new and old, family, and others who I have never met and probably never will. I trusted them with my life and they returned that trust with a faith in me for which I will always be thankful.

Snowden faces conviction and imprisonment in the US should he choose to return.

Snowden: New Zealand's Prime Minister Isn't Telling The Truth About Mass Surveillance Any statement that mass surveillance is not performed in New Zealand, or that the internet communications are not comprehensively intercepted and monitored, or that this is not intentionally and actively abetted by the GCSB, is categorically false. If you live in New Zealand, you are being watched.

Vladimir Putin Must Be Called to Account on Surveillance Just Like Obama I blew the whistle on the NSA's surveillance practices not because I believed that the United States was uniquely at fault, but because I believe that mass surveillance of innocents -- the construction of enormous, state-run surveillance time machines that can turn back the clock on the most intimate details of our lives -- is a threat to all people, everywhere, no matter who runs them.

What Europe Should Know about US Mass Surveillance We live in a global, interconnected world where, when national laws fail, international laws provide for another level of accountability and the asylum process provides a means of due process for individuals who might otherwise be wrongly deprived of it. Polling of public opinion in Europe indicates I am not alone in hoping to see EU governments agree that blowing the whistle on serious wrongdoing should be a protected act.
