(Newser) – Just how much does Edward Snowden know? American officials say that despite revelations in the press, they're not sure how much information about National Security Agency operations he managed to make off with, Reuters reports. Insiders say the number of documents could be in the thousands—and security agencies fear some of them could end up in the hands of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

Assange declined to comment on whether he had access to any of Snowden's unpublished material, though he added, "of course WikiLeaks is in the business of publishing documents that are suppressed by governments." Snowden's current whereabouts are unclear, and his allies aren't saying where he is or why he failed to board a flight from Moscow to Havana yesterday, the AP reports.

Hitler and his government along with his Nazi Spy Agency have all been underminded by the freedom fighter known as Edward Snowden.. The people have been drinking the Nazi Floride water for years to soften them up. will they have the Will to get up, get their minds to working and protest the Nazi Spying and other Nazi things that have been, being done to them? The big question remains, Do They Give a Shit about their rights.

So tell me once again how outsourcing our national security to private contractors works.......I hear India or China has a real good information grid.
