Edward Snowden Has No Regrets


Edward Snowdon is often referred to as a fugitive. This came about because he leaked information from top secret National Security Agency documents. However, he recently spoke at the annual music, film and interactive conference (SXSW) which took place in Austin. Edward Snowden called for an overhaul of the spy programs in the United States.

Snowden has been granted temporary asylum in Russia and this is where he spoke from. This is the first time that the former NSA officer has spoken to American citizens since he fled with many secret papers. This man is facing numerous charges including felony and espionage, and he has always said that he would never return to the USA until current "whistle-blower" laws were changed.
