Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden has released a “Manifesto of Truth” via the German newspaper Der Spiegel. Snowden sent the communication via encrypted channels, stating, “some governments feeling embarrassed by the revelations of mass surveillance initiated an unprecedented campaign of persecution to supress this debate. They intimidated journalists and criminalized publishing the truth.” Snowden goes on to defend his release of classified documents, “the societal benefits of this new public knowledge is now clear, since reforms are now proposed in the form of increased oversight and new legislation.”
