Edward Snowden Offer to Help Brazil for Asylum

Edward Snowden has reported to help Brazil investigate the NSA’s spying activities. Edward Snowden states that he also appreciates the reaction and kickback they had when the agency spied on Dilma Rousseff’s  Mobile Phone.

Brazilian senators have asked for Snowden's help during hearings about the NSA program's aggressive targeting of Brazil, an important transit hub for trans-Atlantic fibre optic cables that are hacked.
"I've expressed my willingness to assist where it's appropriate and legal, but, unfortunately, the US government has been working hard to limit my ability to do so," said the letter, translated into Portuguese by the newspaper. It didn't make the English original available online.

"Until a country grants me permanent political asylum, the U.S. government will continue to interfere with my ability to speak out"

Revelations about the NSA's spy programs were first published in June, based on some of the thousands of documents Snowden handed over to the Brazil-based American journalist Glenn Greenwald and his reporting partner Laura Poitras, a U.S. filmmaker.

The documents revealed that Brazil is the top NSA target in Latin America, spying that has included the monitoring of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff's cellphone and hacking into the internal network of state-run oil company Petrobras.

Snowden expanded on the NSA’s spying capabilities in Brazil, claiming the espionage agency could track the cellphone of any individual in Brazil.

“When someone in Florianopolis visits a website, the NSA keeps a record of when this happened and what the person did on that site. If a mother in Porto Alegre rings her son to wish him luck for his university entrance exam, the NSA can retain a record of the call for up to 5 years.”

  1. If the NSA is doing nothing wrong then they should have nothing to hide and welcome open and free examination of the activities they undertake on our behalf. All the agencies of a free country are answerable to the citizens of said free country. Please NSA, clean up your act and just do the right thing.
    I know you are reading this :p If you are an employee of the NSA it is up to you as an individual to help the NSA into a new era of correct behavior. Yes we get it...the internet is like a candy store to anyone in the spy industry. It is like OMG YOU CAN SPY ON EVERYONE ALL THE TIME!!
    Just like a kid in a candy store, unrestrained behavior is unadvised. Please use some restraint and just common sense and show some respect for the privacy of the people of this planet. You may however spy all you want on other planets...lol jk...seriously through...you have to admit you have gotten completely carried away and that Snowden has actually helped you see that. Like the child that kicks his guardian in the shin when denied unlimited access to the candy in the store, you cause pain to the very person that is helping you.
