American hero Edward Snowden explained on German network TV why U.S. government surveillance of U.S. citizens is an attack on our freedom and basic human rights. He continues to believe he did the right thing when he revealed massive unconstitutional government surveillance programs to his fellow Americans.
Why would a thirty-year-old young man willingly sacrifice a promising career, associations with friends and family, his personal safety, and his life as an American to reveal government spying?

This is a conversation every American should hear!
