Journalist Glenn Greenwald delivered a 45-minute talk to the Socialism 2013 conference that took place in Chicago on June 27-30. He is the journalist who spearheaded the news reporting by The Guardian newspaper of the revelations of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden concerning internet spying by the U.S. government and its close allies, including Britain and Canada.
“What Glenn Greenwald has done with his reporting over these last weeks,” Scahill said in his introduction, “is to shake the foundations of power in Washington and in the national security state.”
