Edward Snowden, the former government contractor and exclusive source behind the NSA PRISM scandal that leaked earlier this month, will once again deliver an exclusive to Britain's Guardian, by means of a live online Q&A hosted on the publication’s website as well as Twitter.
The live Q&A with Snowden will begin promptly at 11 a.m. EDT. Snowden, with the help of political journalist Glenn Greenwald, will take questions on why he leaked the National Security Agency's surveillance program on U.S. citizens, what impact it’s had on his life, and much more. Snowden had previously told the Guardian that he “does not expect to see home again.”
To participate in the live chat, users can post their questions on the Guardian’s website here or they can also ask questions directly through Twitter using the hashtag #AskSnowden. The Guardian plans to release the full Q&A once the live chat has concluded this afternoon. Neither Snowden nor Greenwald have specified how long the live Q&A will be, but we expect the chat to last at least an hour.
