An Exclusive Interview in Hong Kong with Edward Snowden
The US government has been hacking Hong Kong and China for years
Former CIA operative makes more explosive claims and says Washington is
'bullying' Hong Kong to extradite him
"I am not here to hide from justice, I am here to reveal criminality. I'm
neither traitor nor hero. I'm an American", he said, adding that he was
proud to be an American. "I believe in freedom of expression. I acted in
good faith but it is only right that the public form its own opinion." "Last
week the American government happily operated in the shadows with no respect
for the consent of the governed, but no longer. Every level of society is
demanding accountability and oversight."

US whistle-blower Edward Snowden yesterday emerged from hiding in Hong Kong
and revealed to the South China Morning Post that he will stay in the city
to fight likely attempts by his government to have him extradited for
leaking state secrets.
In an exclusive interview carried out from a secret location in the city,
the former Central Intelligence Agency analyst also made explosive claims
that the US government had been hacking into computers in Hong Kong and on
the mainland for years.
