Andrew Napolitano Reviews Glenn Greenwald's No Place to Hide

|

No Place to Hide, released this month, is journalist Glenn Greenwald's story of his nonstop two weeks of work in May and June of 2013 with National Security Agency (NSA) contractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden. Greenwald was the point person who coordinated the public release of the 1.7 million pages of NSA documents that Snowden took with him in order to prove definitively that the federal government is spying on all of us all the time.

The book not only tells of Snowden's initially frustrating and anonymous efforts to reach out to Greenwald and his editors, nor of the insatiable appetite of the NSA to learn everything about everyone. It is also a morality tale, writes Andrew Napolitano, about the personal courage required of Snowden and Greenwald and his colleagues to expose government wrongdoing and to risk their lives, liberties, and properties in doing so.
