New Guardian exposé backs up NSA leaker Edward Snowdens revelations that his authority as an NSA contractor allowed him wide ranging powers of surveillance.
“I, sitting at my desk, certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant, to a federal judge or even the President, if I had a personal e-mail.”
After making these allegations in his first video taped interview he was accused of being a “liar” by Michigan Congressman Mike Rogers. New revelations about NSA program XKeystone vindicate his charges and raise questions about Congressman Rogers’ assertion that Snowden was a lying. Now that we have solid and substanial proof that Snowden was telling the truth the question becomes was Mike Rogers lying to the American people when he called Snowden a liar, or has the NSA been systematically lying to Congress? What is it Mr. Rogers? Did you lie to us or did the NSA lie to you?
