Edward Snowden Bounces Videoconferencing Call to SXSW through Seven Proxy Servers to Mask Location
America's spy agencies are so focused on "mass surveillance" that they have missed clues about terrorist incidents, such as last year's Boston Marathon bombing and an attempted attack on a jetliner on Christmas in 2009, former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden said Monday.
In an hour-long video discussion hosted by the South by Southwest music, film and technology conference in Austin, Texas, Snowden, who is living in asylum in an undisclosed location in Russia, asserted that the National Security Agency's efforts to collect information in bulk have backfired.
"We've actually had a tremendous intelligence failure because . . . we're monitoring everybody's communications instead of suspects' communications" -- a situation, he asserts, that has "caused us to miss" intelligence.
