Snowden Reveals More Info, if tried: AnalystSalem-News.com
The US “convinced us all that Russia was spying on us and that America was the kind gentle pussy cat, now it turns out it’s the other way around,” - Anna O'Leary (Video is set to auto play)
(TEHRAN / DUBLIN) - Political Commentator Anna O’Leary believes that Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency’s whistleblower, is revealing more confidential information if he is put on trial.
“If he ever goes to trial, and his legal experts say that if he does go to trial, he will expose even more classified information,” O’Leary told Press TV on Sunday.
She compares Snowden, who has disclosed documents showing US massive spying operations at home and abroad, with Israeli nuclear Whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu, who spent two decades in an Israeli prison for revealing Israel's undisclosed nuclear program.
Snowden has recently revealed that the US is also engaged in economic espionage against other nations.
"I don't want to pre-empt the editorial decisions of journalists but what I will say is there is no question that the US is engaged in economic spying," Snowden said during his first television interview with German public broadcaster ARD on Sunday night.
The US leaker also said that he had entrusted the NSA data to selected journalists and no longer possessed the material.
Snowden said he was no longer playing any part in decisions on what information should be published.
Elsewhere in her remarks, O’Leary said that the US has been trying to show that Russia was spying on other countries, while that turned out to be the opposite.
The US “convinced us all that Russia was spying on us and that America was the kind gentle pussy cat, now it turns out it’s the other way around,” O’Leary stated.
She went on to say that “it’s Russia that is trying to keep us out of war and America is trying to drag us into a third world war.”
