Hubris is the only word that adequately sums up Glenn Greenwald’s threat saying that the documents fugitive NSA leaker Edward Snowden stole could be the ‘worst nightmare’ for the U.S. In my opinion, Glenn Greenwald’s morality is running on empty right now.
“Snowden has enough information to cause harm to the U.S. government in a single minute than any other person has ever had,” Greenwald said in an interview in Rio de Janeiro with the Argentinean daily La Nacion.
“The U.S. government should be on its knees every day begging that nothing happen to Snowden, because if something does happen to him, all the information will be revealed and it could be its worst nightmare.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin made it very clear that Edward Snowden could be granted asylum in his country as long as he stopped leaking damaging information. With Glenn Greenwald’s yapping, it’s very clear that Edward Snowden’s goal was to damage the U.S., contrary to his statements when he waved a white flag yesterday because he came to the realization that he was boxed in.
Glenn Greenwald’s self-serving comments won’t get Edward Snowden any sympathy. Those comments will get him killed and could force Russia to renege on its asylum request due to increased pressure from the U.S. Glenn Greenwald’s comments just reinforced my opinion that Edward Snowden is a traitor.
