Is NSA Leaker Edward Snowden Looking For A New Home?

Edward SnowdenEdward Snowden hasn’t had much luck since he called out the NSA, creating a ripple effect of angry world leaders due to the possibility of the US Government spying and listening in on citizen’s and official’s phone calls.
Although he has been granted a one year asylum in Russia, Snowden has offered to help Brazil investigate US spying on its soil in exchange for political asylum. The NSA whistleblower published a letter to the Brazilian people in the Folha de S Paulo newspaper.

“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,” Snowden wrote.

“Until a country grants me permanent political asylum, the US government will continue to interfere with my ability to speak out,” he continued.

Supposedly, Snowden had been impressed by the Brazilian government’s strong criticism of the NSA spy program targeting internet and telecommunications worldwide. Brazilians are outraged by the US spying. According to The Guardian, leaked documents have shown that the NSA spied on President Rousseff’s emails and phone calls, tapped the communications of Brazil’s biggest oil company, Petrobras, and monitored those of millions of citizens.

Time will tell if Snowden will find a new home in Brazil.
