Edward Snowden

Glenn Greenwald Planning Potential Visit to the United States

To "force the issue" of whether the country sees the journalist as a criminal

|

Glenn Greenwald hasn't been back to the United States since he began publishing a seemingly never-ending string of Edward Snowden-fueled stories about the NSA and government surveillance last year. Greenwald is an American citizen but lives primarily in Brazil, so it's not exactly a surprise that he's opted to stay out of the country given the prosecution-themed rhetoric that's been coming from the mouths of some U.S. lawmakers and government officials.

But while talk of prosecuting Greenwald for his role in the Snowden leaks has shown little sign of slowing down, the journalist is now suggesting that he may nonetheless return the United States in the not-to-distant future to force the issue.
