Founder of service reportedly used by Edward Snowden said he would not be complicit in 'crimes against the American people'
<em>Guardian</em> columnist Glenn Greenwald on Sunday chided the U.S. government for claiming it had provided "robust oversight" of the National Security Agency (NSA) even though members of Congress were forced to go to his paper to learn about secret programs that gather data on American citizens.
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) says that the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court created in the 1970s is "just anachronistic" because it was not designed for the "astounding reach that the court has gone to with respect to the Patriot Act."

A newly leaked NSA document shows that Yahoo began supplying data to the spy agency’s PRISM program after failing a legal fight against a court order it considered too broad.
