NSA Leaker Edward Snowden: 'I Already Won'
NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden says his mission to expose the agency's massive surveillance program is "already accomplished."By Elizabeth Hagedorn | December 24, 2013
More than six months after he first leaked NSA secrets, whistleblower Edward Snowden has declared mission accomplished.
In an interview published Monday night, Snowden told The Washington Post: "For me, in terms of personal satisfaction, the mission's already accomplished. I already won.”
His leaks — including revelations the NSA had collected the communication records of millions of Americans and eavesdropped on many world leaders — led many to label him a traitor. But Snowden insisted he’s not trying to compromise the national security of his country. (Via CBS, The Guardian)
