Edward Snowden Speaks Out

Download Audio

Not many people have seen Edward Snowden since he disappeared into the Moscow Airport Complex in June 2013, but journalist James Bamford has. Bamford traveled to Russia this year to interview the man who leaked hundreds of thousands of National Security Agency documents that revealed the agency's surveillance.

Snowden is living in Russia, where he has temporary asylum. He's can't return to U.S. because he faces charges, but he says there will be more information emerging from the documents the government claims he took illegally. "The question for us is not what new story will come out next. The question is, what are we going to do about it," Snowden told Bamford.

James Bamford joins Here & Now's Sacha Pfeiffer to talk about his interview with Edward Snowden.
