• Snowden documents could be ’worst nightmare’ for U.S.: journalist | Reuters

    Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who first published the documents Snowden leaked, said in a newspaper interview published on Saturday that the U.S. government should be careful in its pursuit of the former computer analyst.

    “Snowden has enough information to cause harm to the U.S. government in a single minute than any other person has ever had,” Greenwald said in an interview in Rio de Janeiro with the Argentinean daily La Nacion.

    “The U.S. government should be on its knees every day begging that nothing happen to Snowden, because if something does happen to him, all the information will be revealed and it could be its worst nightmare.”

      Greenwald told The AP that Snowden has insisted the information from those documents not be made public. The journalist said it ‘‘would allow somebody who read them to know exactly how the NSA does what it does, which would in turn allow them to evade that surveillance or replicate it.’’

      Despite their sensitivity, Greenwald said he didn’t think that disclosure of the documents would prove harmful to Americans or their national security.

      ‘‘I think it would be harmful to the U.S. government, as they perceive their own interests, if the details of those programs were revealed,’’ said the 46-year-old former constitutional and civil rights lawyer who has written three books contending the government has violated personal rights in the name of protecting national security.

      Greenwald : Snowden asylum ’unlikely’ to stop me from publishing leaks - POLITICO.com

      By seeking protection in Russia, NSA leaker Edward Snowden seems to have acknowledged that he is willing to stop leaking U.S. secrets — a precondition for asylum, according to Russian president Vladimir Putin.

      But Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who first published reports based on Snowden’s leaks, says such an asylum agreement would not stop him from publishing reports on the many confidential documents he has already received from Snowden.

      “Given everything I know, I’d be very shocked if he ever asked me that,” Greenwald told POLITICO on Friday. “I’d deal with that hypothetical only in the extremely unlikely event that it ever happened, but I can’t foresee anything that would or could stop me from further reporting on the NSA documents I have.”
