MOSCOW, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- Edward Snowden said when he released classified secret NSA documents, his intention was to "give society a chance to determine if it should change itself."
In an exclusive interview with the Washington Post, Snowden said "in terms of personal satisfaction, the mission's already accomplished."
"I already won. As soon as the journalists were able to work, everything that I had been trying to do was validated. Because, remember, I didn't want to change society. I wanted to give society a chance to determine if it should change itself," he said.
