WASHINGTON, October 22 (Itar-Tass) - Former Guardian newspaper journalist Glenn Greenwald, who released data from U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) fugitive Edward Snowden, is preparing new revelations of U.S. special services activity, Greenwald, now in Brazil, told the Inter American Press Association (Sociedad Interamericana de Prensa) in Denver, Colorado, by telephone.
Greenwald promised more revelations, as important as those published already. Asked whether he had more scoops about NSA spying on Latin America, he said he had much to reveal, including data about spying on Argentina, Venezuela, Canada and other countries of the American continent.
He said numerous NSA espionage operations in Latin America notably concerned economic activities of the countries and their governments.
While speaking to the media organization, Greenwald said most of the files Snowden had taken to Hong Kong and then to Russia had not been released yet and promised they would be soon be given to the press. He added that he had more information about illegal NSA surveillance of Americans within the United States.
Commenting on revelation of massive interception of French telephone calls on Monday, Greenwald said the Le Monde newspaper had long been in possession of this information. Asked about publication coinciding with the visit of U.S. State Secretary John Kerry to Paris, he said it was solely the newspaper that made the decision about the time and form of publication.
On Monday, Greenwald promised via Twitter that he would soon reveal data about U.S. spying on Spain.
