I, spy: Edward #Snowden in exile - long, interesting interview with @guardian; highlights to follow...

#Snowden on Bolivian president's plane forced down: “I was like, first off, wow, their intelligence sucks, from listening to everything."

#Snowden: "substantial savings from his career as a well-compensated contractor, [and] he has received numerous awards and speaking fees"

#Snowden: "securing foundation funding for a new press freedom initiative, creating tools that allow journalists to communicate securely."

#Snowden: "exasperated to be marked down as conservative libertarian (he is, more moderate than has been reported), declines to be specific"

#Snowden: "He didn’t take a single document to Russia. He has no access to them there. He never initially sought to be in Russia."

#Snowden: "If we’ve basically talked the terrorists out of using our modern communications networks, we have benefited in terms of security"

#Snowden: "I can tell you that in the wake of the last year, there are still terrorists getting hauled up, communications being intercepted"

#Snowden: "I would argue that simply using the term ‘haystack’ is misleading. This is a haystack of human lives"

#Snowden: "What you care about is the metadata, because metadata does not lie. You can’t trust what you’re hearing, you can trust metadata"

#Snowden: "alarmed by implications of the NSA & GCHQ documents, showed their engineers hard at work undermining basic security of the Net"

#Snowden: "when you build a back door into a communication system, that back door can be discovered by anyone around the world"

#Snowden: "no politician wants to defy intelligence chiefs who warn of the potential consequences of being seen to be “weak”."
