Snowden files set for wider release

US-journalist Glenn Greenwald, pictured on December 1, 2014, said The Intercept has already begun to provide archive access to secret documents from Edward Snowden to French daily Le MondeThe full cache of secret documents from former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden is being opened to journalists and organizations willing to work with the news organization holding the archive. The move could vastly increase the disclosures from Snowden, who fled the United States with a trove of documents detailing vast surveillance programs by the NSA and other intelligence agencies from around the world. “From the start of our reporting on the archive, a major component of our approach has been to partner with foreign (and other American) media outlets rather than try to keep all the material for ourselves,” Greenwald said.
