    US whistleblower Edward Snowden published a vaguely worded tweet on Wednesday that has aroused curiosity in the Twittersphere.

    The post reads like a cryptic rallying call, asking former colleagues of the NSA contractor to contact him, saying "It’s time."

    The tweet also quotes journalist Barton Gellman, who is currently writing about Snowden’s time working in the intelligence community in order to "tell it truthfully."

    In 2013, Snowden leaked a cache of intelligence documents that unveiled the extent of the National Security Agency’s domestic spying apparatus. He currently lives in exile in Russia, and faces charges of espionage and theft of government property in the US.

    Gellman isn't the only one interested in Snowden's story. Hollywood director Oliver Stone has released a trailer for his upcoming biopic about the whistleblower. The film should be released later this year.

      I've got a lot more respect for Edwarad Snowden than for Julian Assange. Snowden put himself in harm's way to tell the truth, while Assange is hiding from a rape allegation

      Yeah right. In case he tries to leave the embassy the police officers will take him into custody and extradite him to Sweden which in turn will extradite hum to the US of A@@holes.

      Gerry, Assange knows that Zionist controlled Sweden will extradite him to the US where he will be jailed for 1000 years for telling the truth.

      ALL he talks about and all the leaked truth was KNOWN.
      The programs to monitor everyone, is from the days of AL CAPONE. And earlier.

      I personally saw the picture taken by FBI. It dates from the 20's. they wanted to stop jewelry smuggling into and from Cuba.
      Feds set X rays at airports that took films as passengers passed.
      SINCE the first WIRE , the FEDS had monitors to decode all messages.
      Is NOTHING new.
      they spied women and teens naked , bathing, and made FULL REPORTS!! and doing home chores. Since spies will often slightly drugged women to get laid, and get IN with them for protection while spying.
      Guy just a HACKER, IF he had IDEA of what REALLY is out there. He Run to the NORTH POLE.. WAIT!!
      Russia have subs there. And U.S and NATO ...FORGET IT.

      Jets, why is it that left-wingers think sexual offences are so much less serious when committed by one of their own?

      FlorianGeyer, shouldn't be too difficult to arrange a trial in the Swedish Embassy in London
    • FlorianGeyerin reply toGerry(Show commentHide comment)
      Gerry, The Swedish prosecutor will not even visit Assange at the Embassy to discuss the allegations. Assange has not even been charged with any offence in Sweden.

      With this information the question is whether all this people are working for CIA. Wouldn't surprise me and just a part of the agenda not accomplished, but supposed to be accomplished of 2014 with the Ukraine and the flight MH17 to get at Russia.
