In ‘Permanent Record,’ Edward Snowden Says ‘Exile Is An Endless Layover’

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, on a video link in Moscow, speaks to the crowd on a giant screen at festival in Roskilde, Denmark, in 2016. "You are being watched all the time and you have no privacy," Snowden said.

In his memoir, the former NSA contractor says he believes he’s been proven right as the U.S. has amended laws regarding government surveillance. But the government still wants to prosecute him.
