Wikileaks founder says Snowden info will keep getting published

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said on Sunday that Edward Snowden made sure that the information he took about U.S. surveillance programs will continue to be published regardless of what happens to the former U.S. spy agency contractor.

Assange criticized the United States for revoking Snowden’s passport and said it would not stop the classified information taken by the 30-year-old former contractor from getting out.

NSA chief says agency eavesdropping helped foil 54 plots

BALTIMORE/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The director of the U.S. National Security Agency on Thursday offered a more detailed breakdown of 54 schemes by militants that he said were disrupted by phone and internet surveillance, even as a British newspaper offered evidence of more extensive spying.

In a speech in Baltimore, NSA chief General Keith Alexander said the list of cases turned over recently to Congress included 42 that involved disrupted plots and 12 in which surveillance targets provided material support to terrorism.

Snowden says he cannot get a fair trial on NSA leaks in U.S.

WASHINGTON, June 17 (Reuters) – The former National Security
Agency contractor who revealed the government’s top-secret phone
and Internet surveillance programs said in an online forum on
Monday that he did not expect to get a fair trial in the United
States.

In a question-and-answer session with readers on the website
of Britain’s Guardian newspaper, Snowden said his disappointment
with President Barack Obama helped spur his decision to reveal
the monitoring of Americans’ phone and Internet data kept by big
companies such as Google Inc and Facebook Inc.
