The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who's been leading the charge on the recent NSA surveilance revelations, suggested today that there are dozens of more stories to come based on the information leaked to his paper by Edward Snowden. Via CBS News:
"We are going to have a lot more significant revelations that have not yet been heard over the next several weeks and months," said Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian.
Greenwald told The Associated Press the decision was being made on when to release the next story based on the information provided by Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old employee of government contractor Booz Allen Hamilton who has been accused by U.S. Senate intelligence chairwoman Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California of committing an "act of treason" that should be prosecuted. ... "There are dozens of stories generated by the documents he provided, and we intend to pursue every last one of them," Greenwald said.
It's unclear when and what will come next. Although, if nothing else, the suggestion that there are additional stories in the works may shift the attention back to the NSA itself and away from the current debate about Edward Snowden (Will he seek asylum? Is he a hero/villain? Was he a bad boyfriend? etc.) that has dominated much of the news cycle since he outed himself with the Guardian's help over the weekend. Although, realistically, don't expect the Internet to move on until another major development drops.
