Snow­den urges Obama to par­don him

The Myanmar Times - - World -

US in­tel­li­gence whistle­blower Ed­ward Snow­den called on Pres­i­dent Barack Obama to par­don him, say­ing it had been morally “nec­es­sary” to shine a light on mass sur­veil­lance. Mr Snow­den has spent three years in ex­ile in Rus­sia af­ter ini­ti­at­ing the largest data leaks in US history, fu­elling a firestorm over the is­sue of mass sur­veil­lance. Mr Snow­den said if not for these dis­clo­sures, and if not for these rev­e­la­tions, the world would be worse off.
