Journalist: Edward Snowden Has ‘Blueprints’ to NSA

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -

Edward Snowden has highly sensitive documents of how the National Security Agency is structured and operates that could harm the government, but has insisted that they not be made public, a journalist close to Snowdon  said.

Glenn Greenwald, a columnist with The Guardian who first reported the leaks, told AP that disclosure of the information in the documents “would allow somebody who read them to know exactly how the NSA does what it does, which would in turn allow them to evade that surveillance or replicate it.”

Meanwhile, President Vladimir Putin said Monday he saw signs that Edward Snowden was shifting towards stopping “political activity” directed against the United States.
