Award-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, who has been working with NSA Leaker Edward Snowden for more than a year, said he plans to release a list of names of those who have been the targets of NSA surveillance. Greenwald just announced that the list will be published soon on The Intercept, a website he established last year after moving on from his position at The Guardian. The exact timetable for the release of the list of names has not yet been announced.

Statement from Glenn Greenwald
“One of the big questions when is comes to domestic spying is, ‘Who have been the NSA’s specific targets?’ Are they political critics and dissidents and activists? Are they genuinely people we’d regard as terrorists? What are the metrics and calculations that go into choosing those targets and what is done with the surveillance that is conducted? Those are the kinds of questions that I want to still answer,” Mr. Greenwald elaborated in a teaser to The Sunday Times of London in a recent interview.
Greenwald pulls no punches in slamming the competency and questioning the intentions of the NSA spooks in recent comments. “There is this genuinely menacing [spy] system and at the same time, [they] are really inept about how they operate it,” he said, Newsmax reported. “Not only was he out there under their noses downloading huge amounts of documents without being detected, but to this day, they’re incapable of finding out what he took.”
