Snowden talks to the Washington Post: “I already won,” he says


Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden conducted an interview with The Washington Post, in which he discussed the causes and effects his revelations, and where he currently stands in his opinions. “For me, in terms of personal satisfaction, the mission’s already accomplished. I already won,” Snowden said. “As soon as the journalists were able to work, everything that I had been trying to do was validated. Because, remember, I didn’t want to change society. I wanted to give society a chance to determine if it should change itself.”

“All I wanted was for the public to be able to have a say in how they are governed,” Snowden added. “That is a milestone we left a long time ago. Right now, all we are looking at are stretch goals.”

Snowden also told interviewer Barton Gellman that he took the initiative, because no one else had. “You have the capability, and you realize every other [person]sitting around the table has the same capability but they don’t do it. So somebody has to be the first.”

“I am still working for the NSA right now,” Snowden said. “They are the only ones who don’t realize it.”
