“I Have Been to the Darkest Corners of Government, and What They Fear Is Light” 

This essay is a shortened and adapted version of Chapter 1 of Glenn Greenwald’s new book, No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Security State, and appears at TomDispatch.com with the kind permission of Metropolitan Books.

On December 1, 2012, I received my first communication from Edward Snowden, although I had no idea at the time that it was from him.
