Radio interview with Washington Post's Barton Gellman on Snowden NSA leaks

This Terri Gross interview with Washington Post reporter Barton Gellman on WHYY's "Fresh Air," which is syndicated by NPR, is really terrific. I caught it while driving home yesterday, and had a genuine "driveway moment" -- I sat in my car a good 15 minutes after I parked to hear the whole thing. Gellman speaks about the process of reporting on Edward Snowden's leaks about the NSA's spying programs. What he says is as interesting as what he can't.

    That was a great article. I loved this quote: "increasingly we are living behind one-way mirrors in which the government knows more and more about us and we know less and less about what the government is doing".

    However, this, "I see no evidence that the government is assembling these tools in order to spy on political opponents or corruptly to serve some private interest" is debatable considering the information released about the NSA spying on Brazil's state oil company Petrobras and other corporate targets.
