Glenn Greenwald may be ready to return to the U.S.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald's reporting on the documents leaked by Edward Snowden broke the story of the NSA's mass surveillance programs. Critics including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers have suggested Greenwald's actions may have been criminal. Greenwald lives in Brazil and has not been back to the U.S. since the story broke. But he talks to Anderson about why that might change.

Greenwald, the Miranda detention, and journalistic immunity

Were authorities justified in using terrorism laws to detain reporter Glenn Greenwald's spouse David Miranda? He spent nearly nine hours being questioned at Heathrow Airport, and says he was told he had to answer or go to jail. He also says none of those questions were about terrorism. Were authorities justified in doing that? Anderson asked CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, and the Government Accountability Project's Jesselyn Radack.

Greenwald 'staggered' by King accusation

Tonight Anderson Cooper asked Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian to respond to the accusations that he threatened to disclose the names of CIA agents, and the idea he should face consequences for his reporting on Edward Snowden and breaking the story on the U.S. surveillance programs.

Republican Congressman Peter King said on AC360 Tuesday night  if reporters linked to the NSA leaker willingly knew they were revealing classified information, they should be punished. Then today the lawmaker claimed Greenwald was threatening to reveal the names of CIA personnel, which King considers a direct attack on America. For that, King is calling for Greenwald to be prosecuted.

Greenwald calls King's allegations a fabrication.

Behind the scenes working with Edward Snowden

In June of 2013, journalist Glenn Greenwald unveiled to the world that an American had leaked documents from a secretive U.S. defense agency, the National Security Agency. The leaker was a man named Edward Snowden, who had worked at the NSA for four years and was hired through a contractor.

The stories published by The Guardian revealed practices never before revealed publicly about the America's surveillance programs, such as a metadata collection program on Americans' phones and the revelation that the NSA may have spied on world leaders.

After Snowden fled the U.S. an international manhunt began and it captured the attention of the world. Snowden taped an on camera interview with Greenwald and colleague Laura Poitras to reveal himself to the world as a self-described "whistleblower."

Glenn Greenwald's new book “No Place to Hide,” describes the behind-the-scenes story of how the journalist and his colleague Ms. Poitras met Mr. Snowden and what took place after. Greenwald spoke to Anderson about the book.

True Politics: President Obama's NSA reforms

President Obama delivered a 45-minute speech today laying changes for the NSA. Some reforms will be immediate, others will take effect over time. What does this mean for your privacy, and the government's ability to prevent terror attacks? Jim Sciutto breaks down some of the big changes for the NSA.
There is little doubt today's speech would not have happened without Edward Snowden's leaks. Anderson discussed all of this with journalist Glenn Greenwald who published many of those leaks, and Andy Card who served as Chief of Staff in the George W. Bush administration.
