Glenn Greenwald vows revenge following partner’s detention: England “will be sorry for what they did!”


Glenn Greenwald - The Guardian

Journalist Glenn Greenwald

Outraged American journalist Glenn Greenwald has vowed to avenge the detention of his Brazilian partner David Miranda at England’s Heathrow Airport where Miranda was questioned for close to nine hours by British Intelligence officers who confiscated his laptop, cell phone, and memory chips.

Greenwald, a Rio de Janeiro-based columnist for Britain’s Guardian newspaper, said the detention was an attempt to “intimidate” him for publishing documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden disclosing U.S. surveillance of global internet communications. Snowden, who was granted temporary asylum by Russia, supposedly gave Greenwald more than 15,000 documents that detail the U. S. National Security Agency’s surveillance programs.

Greenwald’s THREAT: “I will be far more aggressive in my reporting from now. I am going to publish many more documents. I am going to publish things on England too. I have many documents on England’s spy system. I think they will be sorry for what they did!”

Bring it on, Glenn! We’re all waiting to see who ends up flat on their face.
