WASHINGTON — Liberal journalist Glenn Greenwald released more information regarding the U.S. National Security Agency’s extensive spying program.
Reuters reported that a Brazilian’s news program revealed how extensive the NSA program was, according to some of Greenwald’s information.
This could be seen as a direct response to the U.S. from Greenwald, who was upset when his gay partner was detained in London’s Heathrow airport and whose computers and other electronic storage devices were seized by British authorities.
The news agency, Globo, ran the news piece on “Fantastico” and even ran copies of written messages of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, who was a candidate at the time he was spied on. Some of the correspondence from Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff and her advisors were also included in the report.
This comes after the NSA’s program was revealed by a leaker Edward Snowden, who fled to Hong Kong and then to Russia where he is hiding under temporary asylum. The U.S. has been under fire since the program was revealed by Greenwald.
