Glenn Greenwald, The Guardian reporter who originally broke Edward Snowden's leaks on the National Security Agency, claims the secretive government organization has technology that allows it to store one billion phone calls a day.
Greenwald said during his speech via Skype (below) to the Socialism Conference in Chicago on Friday this new revelation was "coming soon" in a new report in The Guardian, noted Fire Dog Lake.
The controversial journalist said that the NSA technology is “brand new" and is part of a “globalized system to destroy all privacy.”
“What we're really talking about here is a globalized system that prevents any form of electronic communication from taking place without its being stored and monitored by the National Security Agency,” Greenwald said.
Greenwald also heaped praise on Snowden for not being a "fame whore" and added that Snowden has turned down every network and cable show that has repeatedly tried to book him for an appearance.
“He’s a person who has zero privilege, zero power, zero position and zero prestige, and yet by himself he has literally changed the world," Greenwald said.
