National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden wrote an open letter to the people of Brazil published in a Brazilian newspaper on Tuesday. In the letter, he said he would be willing to help the country investigate NSA spying on its soil in exchange for political asylum. Brazil, including President Dilma Rousseff, has been a major target of NSA spying and has complained vehemently in the international community. Snowden has temporary asylum in Russia. RT’s Ameera David talks to Kevin Gosztola, blogger at Firedoglake, about Snowden’s request of Brazil and other NSA-related news.
