Edward Snowden's revelations

Black Budget: Snowden reveals US spends $52bn on secret programs

Britain has asked the New York Times to get rid of copies of documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden. That's as another US newspaper revealed from one of the top-secret files, just how much America spends on surveillance . The so called Black Budget has never been shown to the public until now. Meanwhile Snowden's leaks have won him international recognition. He was awarded the 2013 Whistleblower Prize by a coalition of NGO's. And as RT's Peter Oliver in Berlin says, Snowden's name is featuring prominently in Germany's upcoming general election.
