In May 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Hong Kong to meet an anonymous source who claimed to have astonishing evidence of pervasive government spying and insisted on communicating only through heavily encrypted channels.  Now nearly a year later Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald continues to unveil new secrets about the National Security Agency and the surveillance state that has been created.  These revelations of the NSA’s unprecedented abuse of power prove to be some of the most explosive and consequential news in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy.
