Snowden Gave 15,000 Documents to Glenn Greenwald; Obama Cancels Russia Summit

sl4shd0rk writes"The American journalist Glenn Greewald, who published much of the initial info on illegal NSA programs, plans to release more revelations on the NSA spying machine in 10 days. 'The articles we have published so far are a very small part of the revelations that ought to be published,' Greenwald said on Tuesday. Greenwald further elaborated on public posturing which many nations are currently taking: 'The Brazilian government is showing much more anger in public than it is showing in private discussions with the U.S. government. All governments are doing this, even in Europe.'"

The U.S. decided to pull out of a summit with Russia next 


"However, given our lack of progress on issues such as missile 

defense and arms control, trade and commercial relations, global 

security issues, and human rights and civil society in the last twelve 

months, we have informed the Russian Government that we 

believe it would be more constructive to postpone the summit until 

we have more results from our shared agenda. Russia's 

disappointing decision to grant Edward Snowden temporary asylum 

was also a factor that we considered in assessing the current state 

of our bilateral relationship. Our cooperation on these issues 

remains a priority for the United States, so on Friday, August 9, 

Secretaries Hagel and Kerry will meet with their Russian 

counterparts in a 2+2 format in Washington to discuss how we can 

best make progress moving forward on the full range of issues in 

our bilateral relationship."
