Snowden: Industry also spied on
January 27, 2014 10:19 AM

BERLIN (AP) — Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden claimed in a new interview that the U.S. agency is involved in industrial espionage.

In the interview aired Sunday night on German public television broadcaster ARD, Snowden said if the German engineering company Siemens had information that would benefit the U.S., but had nothing to do with national security needs, the National Security Agency would still use it.

It wasn’t clear what exactly Snowden accused the NSA of doing with such information — he only said he didn’t want to reveal the details before journalists did.
