Edward Snowden leaked thousands of classified NSA documents to three journalists in 2013, exposing innumerable national security secrets, including information about a surveillance program with the ability to track metadata from calls within the United States.
Barton Gellman, one of the journalists to whom Snowden leaked, joined Dany and Marc to talk about his relationship with Snowden and his new book, “Dark Mirror: Edward Snowden and the Surveillance State.” They also debate the merit of Snowden’s intelligence leaks and the role of individual privacy in national security.
Barton Gellman, a staff writer at The Atlantic, spent 21 years at The Washington Post, where he served tours as legal, diplomatic, military and Middle East correspondent, and contributed to three Pulitzer Prizes. He is the author most recently of “Dark Mirror: Edward Snowden and the American Surveillance State” and the bestselling “Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency.”
The post WTH is going on with Edward Snowden? Discussing the greatest theft of US secrets in history with author and Snowden confidant Barton Gellman appeared first on American Enterprise Institute – AEI.
