Snowden to NSA: I told you so

Is Snowden vindicated or did he go too far?
Check it out:

Bad day for the NSA. A federal judge ruled its spying program unconstitutional, finally giving document leaker, Edward Snowden, a chance to say, “I told you so.”

Snowden said, “I acted on my belief that the NSA’s mass surveillance programs would not withstand a constitutional challenge, and that the American public deserved a chance to see these issues determined by open courts. Today, a secret program authorized by a secret court was, when exposed to the light of day, found to violate Americans’ rights. It is the first of many.”

The Obama administration defends the program as a much-needed tool to fight terrorism. The Justice Department is far from waiving the white flag. “We believe the program is constitutional as previous judges have found.”
