On Thursday night Charlie Rose interviewed London Guardian editors Alan Rusbridger and Janine Gibson, who are responsible for the release of the materials Edward Snowden took from the National Security Agency.
It is an in-depth discussion of how the Guardian is dealing with the materials Snowden has disclosed to them, of which there is more coming. While both British and US officials told the Guardian they would rather none were published, they were given an opportunity to argue the case if publication of any specific document would truly endanger national security. Neither government offered any such argument!
There is also a good exploration of Snowden’s motives and his understanding of the consequences of his actions—excellent interview.
