Denver • The journalist behind stories about the National Security Agency's global spy program promised Monday that there are many more to come, including details about the United States spying on its own citizens.
Glenn Greenwald, an American reporter based in Brazil, spoke by video to a group of reporters from around the Americas gathered in Denver for a meeting of the Inter American Press Association. He said the upcoming reports will be as significant as the report he co-wrote in the French newspaper Le Monde about the NSA sweeping up millions of phone records in France in a month.
Greenwald said he's committed to reporting on every document of public interest given to him by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. He said he does consider the potential harm that could be caused by his disclosures and consults with experienced editors and reporters in deciding what to publish. He also said they present their reporting to the government at issue to listen to officials' view about publishing the information, but he acknowledged they usually disregard it.
