Another United States senator has said he thinks the actions of National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden may constitute treason, just one day after White House officials expressed additional concern over just how much information the leaker has in his possession. A newly disclosed top secret document lauds the National Security Agency's "productive" and long-standing surveillance "partnership" with a pair of telecommunications providers - that permitted tapping into their fiber links - but without naming names. Evidence points to AT&T and Verizon. The latest from the Edward Snowden's leaks?shows that Obama eventually told the NSA to stop collecting email communications in 2011, apparently because the so-called StellarWind program "was not yielding much value," even when collected in bulk.
