Even Video Games: NSA Spying on Electronic Games on Internet Exposed

 

In a story based on National Security Agency (NSA) documents stolen and leaked by Edward Snowden, it was revealed on this day that the NSA had even spied on the use of electronic games on the internet. Needless to say, there was no valid justification for such spying in terms of national security. Stories based on the Snowden documents were first published on June 5, 2013, and continued for months afterward.

The 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service was awarded to The Guardian US and the Washington Post on April 14, 2014. On February 16, 2014, reporters Glenn Greenwald, Ewen MacAskill, Laura Poitras, and Barton Gellman won the prestigious George Polk Award for Excellence in Journalism for their stories based on the Snowden-released documents.
