Snowden Clarifies: Not Seeking Amnesity in Exchange for Information

US leaker Edward Snowden said in a TV interview here that he would accept asylum in Brazil if offered, but not if it were in exchange for information about US intelligence.

Snowden, in an interview broadcast late Sunday on the news show "Fantastico" on Globo TV network, also criticized the panel that is reviewing US intelligence gathering, pointing out that it was hand-picked by the White House and that the changes it called for were cosmetic.

Nevertheless he acknowledged that the panel represented an important first step in reining in the massive US surveillance programs.
