Last week, Edward Snowden, the whistleblower behind the biggest intelligence leak in the history of the U.S. National Security Agency, answered questions about the revelations from the public. You want to read what he has to say.
 
As of yesterday, Snowden has been charged with espionage as well as theft and conversion of government property.
 
From The Guardian:
 
It is the interview the world's media organisations have been chasing for more than a week, but instead Edward Snowden is giving Guardian readers the exclusive.
 
The 29-year-old former NSA contractor and source of the Guardian's NSA files coverage will – with the help of Glenn Greenwald – take your questions today on why he revealed the NSA's top-secret surveillance of US citizens, the international storm that has ensued, and the uncertain future he now faces. Ask him anything.
 
Snowden, who has fled the US, told the Guardian he "does not expect to see home again", but where he'll end up has yet to be determined.
