The Washington Post just published the first interview with Edward Snowden since the initial wave of press after the 30-year-old former analyst's leaks this summer. His main theme: Edward Snowden done good.
This is not to say that Snowden doesn't deserve the praise. The Washington Post makes it very clear in nearly 4,500 words of reporting that, thanks to Snowden's leak, the NSA "faces scrutiny it has not endured since the 1970s, or perhaps ever." Indeed, just last week, a federal judge called the NSA's surveillance efforts "almost Orwellian" and also probably unconstitutional. President Obama's even changed his tune, and now says that the agency is threatening American business online. (It is!)
