Snowden: “Is It Really Terrorism That We’re Stopping? I Say No. The Bottom Line Is That Terrorism … Has Always Been a Cover For Actions”

Snowden Hits the Nail on the Head

Edward Snowden previously said about mass surveillance by the NSA:

These programs were never about terrorism: they’re about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They’re about power.

Today, Snowden told a TED conference:

Is it really terrorism that we’re stopping? I say no.


The bottom line is that terrorism […] has always been a cover for actions. Terrorism evokes an emotional response.

He’s right
