A group of civil rights organizations in Germany are awarding Edward Snowden with a prize for whistleblowing. They decry his treatment by the US and want Germany to offer him aslyum.
Edward Snowden and his supporters have called on President Barack Obama to pardon the former National Security Agency contractor. The initiative comes ahead of the release of a new movie on the whistleblower's life.
Former US spy agency Edward Snowden was a "disgruntled employee" and not a "principled whistleblower," according to a report from Congress. Civil liberty groups advocate a presidential pardon for the exiled 33 year old.
New details have emerged describing how NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden spent two weeks in hiding after the US government issued an arrest warrant. He said he was safe among Hong Kong's refugees.
Germany's intelligence agencies are planning a massive increase in their budgets next year, according to a new report. The BND is hoping the cash injection will help it become more independent from the NSA.
