Submission + - Ed Snowden replies to allegations regarding his activities (

An anonymous reader writes: After a series of interviews with Ed Snowden by the NY Times, they report on allegations made against Ed Snowden by the CIA and NSA agencies and past/present personnel. The article discusses how Snowden came to the decision to disclose the spying activities of the US and allies by determining that the public deserved to know, and that the activities were illegal. He rebuts allegations of releasing information to Chinese or Russian officials by stating he released all copies that he had to journalists in Hong Kong before fleeing to Russia. He also addresses the personnel file entry recently disclosed by the CIA and says it was the result of retribution for his disclosing weaknesses in the personnel filing system itself.
