Edward Snowden says judge's ruling vindicates NSA surveillance disclosures | Citizens for Legitimate Government

Edward Snowden says judge's ruling vindicates NSA surveillance disclosures | Citizens for Legitimate Government:
Edward Snowden, the former security contractor who leaked a trove of National Security Agency documents, welcomed a court ruling on Monday that declared the bulk collection of Americans' telephone records to be a likely violation of the US constitution. Snowden said the ruling, by a US district judge, justified his disclosures. "I acted on my belief that the NSA's mass surveillance programs would not withstand a constitutional challenge, and that the American public deserved a chance to see these issues determined by open courts," he said in comments released through Glenn Greenwald, the former Guardian journalist who received the documents from Snowden.
