The Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman says NSA leaker Edward Snowden's disclosures about U.S. surveillance programs have undermined U.S. relationships with other countries and affected what he called "the importance of trust."
National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden is "under the care of the Russian authorities" and can't leave Moscow's international airport without his U.S. passport, Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa told The Associated Press on Sunday.
It doesn't look good when the most powerful man in the world can't get his hands on one of the most wanted men in the world.
The man at the heart of the National Security Agency whistleblowing scandal is emerging from hiding Monday — in a cybercast sort of way — and taking part in a Q&A online session hosted by The Guardian newspaper.
"The Snowden case is much more important for politicians than it is for foreign intelligence services," he told the Financial Times.
