MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The man who leaked the information about U.S. surveillance programs has come forward — voluntarily.

Edward Snowden says he doesn’t intend to hide because he doesn’t think he did anything wrong.

President Obama has strongly defended the programs, saying they prevent terror attacks, but the revelations have sparked fierce criticism from others, who say the policies abuse privacy rights.
