Is the U.S. Government Trying to Stop Glenn Greenwald from Publishing His “Biggest Story?”

shockingGlen Greenwald (in May):  We published the first article [about the NSA collecting Verizon phone records] while I was in Hong Kong last June and won’t stop until we’re done. I think we will end the big stories in about three months or so [June or July 2014]. I like to think of it as a fireworks show: You want to save your best for last. There’s a story that from the beginning I thought would be our biggest, and I’m saving that.  The last one is the one where the sky is all covered in spectacular multicolored hues. This will be the finale, a big missing piece. 

It seems that as Greenwald on the verge of publishing the story, the U.S. government has decided to intervene

In May, I highlighted an excellent interview of Glenn Greenwald by GQ Magazine in the piece: Glenn Greenwald on the 2016 Elections – “They’ll Probably Have a Gay Person After Hillary.” There’s so much good stuff in that piece, I strongly suggest you go back and read it if you haven’t, but the relevant part to today’s post is the following exchange:

GQ: How much more is there to release—and what burden do you feel to get it out there?

Greenwald: We published the first article [about the NSA collecting Verizon phone records] while I was in Hong Kong last June and won’t stop until we’re done. I think we will end the big stories in about three months or so [June or July 2014]. I like to think of it as a fireworks show: You want to save your best for last. There’s a story that from the beginning I thought would be our biggest, and I’m saving that. The last one is the one where the sky is all covered in spectacular multicolored hues. This will be the finale, a big missing piece. Snowden knows about it and is excited about it.

So it seems that as Greenwald on the verge of publishing the story, the U.S. government has decided to intervene. Greenwald’s latest Tweet cryptically describes the situation:

 

 

Must be some fireworks indeed…
