"I can't in good conscience allow the U.S. government to destroy privacy, internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they're secretly building" ~Edward Snowden~
Edward Snowden didn't expose any of the American government secrets, that the American people shouldn't know. The national government was invading the rights of the people. Spying on them secretly weather they were criminals, convicts, rich, poor. They were recoding phone calls, hacking into your social media. An accessing your passwords also.
