Snowden Asks Putin: Do You Spy?

Handout

Edward Snowden has jumped the shark. In a Thursday interview with Moscow-run television station Russia Today, Snowden asked Vladimir Putin: "Does Russia intercept, store, or analyze—in any way—the communications of individuals?" Snowden has lived in Moscow for nearly a year since he leaked information from the National Security Agency. Putin responded: “Russia uses surveillance techniques for spying on individuals only with the sanction of a court order. This is our law, and therefore there is no mass surveillance in our country.” Watch the entire exchange below.
