You may remember Edward Snowden as the former NSA contractor that leaked confidential government documents revealing that the government has global surveillance programs run by the NSA and the other Five Eyes governments, including the U.K., Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. The U.S. Justice Department charged Snowden with espionage and his passport has been revoked. Snowden is currently in Russia and was granted a one-year temporary asylum. Snowden has been called a hero by some and a traitor by others. Regardless of your thoughts on Snowden’s behavior, this public interview between him and the ACLU?s Ben Wizner and Christopher Soghoian from SXSW is quite important if you are interested in knowing what Snowden is thinking.
