Glenn Greenwald

Glenn Greenwald was a lawyer who became a political blogger and a journalist. Greenwald wrote extensively about the Bush wiretapping controversy, causing him to come to the attention of NSA analyst, Edward Snowden. Snowden contacted Greenwald to request his help in releasing multiple documents he had taken from the NSA. Greenwald did not, at first, appreciate Snowden’s attempts to contact him and did not get in touch with him until months later when a friend, Laura Poitras, brought some of the documents to his attention.

Greenwald placed himself in danger by helping Snowden. In the aftermath of the articles he wrote about Snowden and his articles, Greenwald’s life was threatened, his house was burglarized, and his partner was arrested for terrorism while traveling in England. However, Greenwald continues to believe in what Snowden did and to hope for change among spy organizations.
