Snowden hits back at government attacks in national TV interview, May 29, 2014


Edward Snowden made waves in the national media Wednesday night in his first national TV interview. NBC's Brian Williams questioned the 30-year-old National Security Agency whistleblower on why he leaked thousands of classified documents that revealed the extent of the NSA's electronic surveillance practices. Defending his actions, as well as his asylum in Russia, Snowden hit back at government accusations he provided classified security information to foreign governments and harmed the nation's security. RT's Ameera David discusses the interview with Jesselyn Radack, one of Snowden's attorneys; journalist and activist Norman Solomon; and former Reagan administration official Bruce Fein.
