Report revealed ‘Inexcusable Crimes’: Snowden

Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden said on Wednesday that the US had committed “inexcusable crimes” during its torture programme detailed by a US Senate report. Speaking via videolink at a Paris conference organised by pressure group Amnesty International, Snowden -- who exposed secret NSA documents - said he was “deeply saddened and to a great extent angered by what I read.” “The Senate investigation and the report they have released is extraordinary for a number of reasons.The things we did as a result of this programme are inexcusable crimes,” added Snowden. The US Senate said in a report published on Tuesday that CIA torture of Al-Qaeda suspects was far more brutal than acknowledged and failed to produce useful intelligence.
