Snowden: Recent NSA Ruling is “the First of Many” Victories

Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden predicted “the first of many” victories on Monday after a judge ruled a NSA surveillance program likely violated the constitution. 

Snowden, who leaked hundreds of thousands of NSA documents, said he acted knowing the programs would be found unconstitutional once finally revealed. 

“I acted on my belief that the NSA’s mass surveillance programs would not withstand a constitutional challenge, and that the American public deserved a chance to see these issues determined by open courts,” Snowden said in a statement, according to The New York Times.
