Meet Edward Snowden, the FISA, NSA whistleblower

The man who exposed the surveillance of Americans and 35 countries by the NSA is a 29 year old former technical assistant for the CIA by the name of Edward Snowden. 
Never for a moment deluded about the consequences of his actions, Snowden who has spent the past four years working for the NSA under “various outside contractors including Booz Allen Hamilton and Dell” and employed for the defense contractor firm, Booz Allen Hamilton asserts, that it was never his intention to remain anonymous.
“…The Guardian, after several days of interviews, is revealing his identity at his request. From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. ‘I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong,’ he said….
…In a note accompanying the first set of documents he provided, he wrote: ‘I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions,’ but ‘I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant.’
Despite his determination to be publicly unveiled, he repeatedly insisted that he wants to avoid the media spotlight. ‘I don't want public attention because I don't want the story to be about me. I want it to be about what the US government is doing’….
…Three weeks ago, Snowden made final preparations that resulted in last week's series of blockbuster news stories. At the NSA office in Hawaii where he was working, he copied the last set of documents he intended to disclose.
He then advised his NSA supervisor that he needed to be away from work for "a couple of weeks" in order to receive treatment for epilepsy, a condition he learned he suffers from after a series of seizures last year….”
“…Any analyst can target anyone anytime if given the power to do so…There are more important things than money…”
Below is a video of the Guardian’s interview with Eric Snowden in which Snowden informs us that Obama building an infrastructure of turnkey tyranny. 
Note 2:36 of video, Snowden confirms the surveillance of all Americans.
spoke is very narrowly tailored as foreign intelligence gathered overseas.
Now increasingly we see that it's happening domestically and to do that they uh..the NSA specifically  targets the communications of everyone. It ingests them by default.  It collects them in its system and it filters them and it analyzes them and it measures them and it stores them for periods of time…
