Journalist in US surveillance leak says more revelations to come
HONG KONG (AP) - The journalist who exposed classified US surveillance programmes leaked by an American defense contractor said on Tuesday that there will be more 'significant revelations' to come from the documents.
"We are going to have a lot more significant revelations that have not yet been heard over the next several weeks and months," Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian.
Mr Greenwald told The Associated Press the decision was being made on when to release the next story based on the information provided by Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old employee of government contractor Booz Allen Hamilton who has been accused by US Senate intelligence chairwoman Dianne Feinstein of California of committing an "act of treason" that should be prosecuted.
Mr Greenwald's reports last week exposed widespread US government programs to collect telephone and Internet records.
