Edward Snowden's father on latest NSA revelations

Britain's Guardian newspaper revealed today that the NSA's e-mail searches may go deeper than you might imagine. According to the paper, agents are not only able to access e-mail addresses and subject lines, but also the content of the messages.  In addition they are also able to view web histories and social networking activity.  All this echoes bombshell allegations by Edward Snowden in the same newspaper.  Anderson spoke with the NSA’s leaker’s father Lon Snowden, along with his lawyer Bruce Fein.

Edward Snowden's father speaks

Admitted NSA leaker Edward Snowden is living in limbo inside Moscow's airport. But the question is, for how much longer? Officials in Washington are demanding he return to the U.S. and face charges, while promising in so many words, to neither kill nor torture him. Edward Snowden's father and his attorney Bruce Fein sat down with Anderson. Lon Snowden talks about the public's view of his son, and whether he is ready to accept the consequences of his actions.


Anderson took a closer look at the events that brought Edward Snowden to this point.

Julian Assange to Edward Snowden: 'Go to Latin America'

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, knows something about secrets and what happens when they're exposed.

He has some advice for Edward Snowden, who recently leaked information about the extent of U.S. electronic surveillance programs.

"I would strongly advise him to go to Latin America," Assange told CNN's AC360 Monday night. "Latin America has shown in the past 10 years that it is really pushing forward in human rights. There's a long tradition of asylum."

Assange spoke from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has been holed up for almost a year.

Ecuador's government granted him asylum in August, but British authorities have said they will arrest him if he leaves the premises

Critics including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers have suggested Greenwald's actions may have been criminal.
