‘Nothing can stop Snowden from revealing more about US snoop-op’
Washington: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has reportedly said that nothing can stop NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden from revealing more about the US led ` snooping programme`.
Snowden has been stuck in the transit area of Moscow`s Shermetyevo Airport as his passport has been revoked by the US authorities and Ecuadorean government has cancelled the `invalid and unauthorized travel documents` issued by one of its officials.
According to the Washington Post, Assange said that great care has been taken to make sure that Snowden can`t be pressured by any state to stop the publication process at this stage.
The report said that the latest revelations attributed to Snowden claim that US snooped on EU officials in Washington, New York and Brussels prompting strong reactions from the European allies who said that the allegations could scuttle ongoing negotiations on a proposed major trans-Atlantic trade treaty .
Snowden`s biggest supporter Assange said that he is not a traitor but a ` hero` to have told the people of the world about the mass unlawful interception of their communications adding that US president Obama can`t call it `justified` if he as a president does it.
Meanwhile, Obama has denied opting for diplomatic `wheeling and dealing` with other nations in order to get a `fugitive` back to US and has rather asked other countries as part of the international community to respect and follow the international law.
Former director of the NSA and CIA, Michael V. Hayden said that the European outrage was unwarranted and leaders there should look first and find out what their own governments are doing adding that Obama needs to communicate better the extent of domestic spying to its own citizens, the report added.
