Submission + - Edward Snowden Explains Why He Leaked Top Secret NSA Documents (ibtimes.co.uk)

DavidGilbert99 writes: In the second part of a video interview, Edward Snowden has explained the motivation behind his decision to leak highly sensitive and top secret NSA files. He says he was tired of waiting for someone else to make a stance, so did it himself:

"I don't want to live in a world where everything that I say, everything I do, everyone I talk to, every expression of creativity or love or friendship is recorded. That's not something I am willing to support, it's not something I'm willing to build and it's not something I'm willing to live under. I think anyone who opposes that sort of world has an obligation to act in a way they can."
