Enemy of the State

The highly anticipated movie, Snowden, has released a new trailer. The film is about former member of the CIA and NSA contract worker, Edward Snowden, and is set to be released this September.

Snowden, who became in international criminal in 2013 when he leaked classified government documents, has incited an important public debate about the balance between liberty and security. The leak has been a PR disaster for the US government, who’s surveillance community has been exposed for its massive overreach.

The U.S. Department of Justice has charged Snowden with two counts of violating the Espionage Act of 1917, and has been actively trying to extradite Snowden, who quickly fled the country and applied for refuge in 21 countries. Snowden was eventually granted asylum in Russia, which is set to expire on August 1, 2017.
