"It's no longer based on the traditional practice of targeted taps based on some individual suspicion of wrongdoing," Snowden recently said in an interview. "It covers phone calls, emails, texts, search history, what you buy, who your friends are, where you go, who you love."

 

Although US lawmakers still don't appreciate Snowden's actions, many Internet users have applauded him for making the disclosures.
