Alan Rusbridger: The World After Snowden
The debate over the impact of Edward Snowden’s intelligence leaks has been obscured by “muddle and fog”, particularly in the United Kingdom, according to Alan Rusbridger. The Guardian’s editor-in-chief said the lack of response from British politicians, journalists and the public following the revelations was “very frustrating”.
Politicians in the UK have found the subject “toxic”, complex and difficult to discuss, but the issues are too important to be ignored, Rusbridger said.
“The penny has dropped recently that, love or hate Edward Snowden, he has laid out a huge canvas of issues that concern us all,” he said.
