Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes the return of reporter and "The Guardian" columnist Glenn Greenwald.
Largely credited with breaking the story surrounding Edward Snowden and leaked information on government agencies use of secret data-mining programs, Greenwald is a recurring guest of the program and in advance of this evening's appearance we've compiled a collection of some of his recent offerings:
1. Glenn Greenwald thinks that the U.S. government should be praying for Edward Snowden's health, and "not trying to kill him."
2. Glenn Greenwald is vehemently against the government surveilling the American people, saying such a program's main function "is to destroy privacy and anonymity not just in the United States but around the world."
3. Glenn Greenwald was saddened by the death of colleague Michael Hastings: "He was a friend of mine but more importantly than that, he was one of the nation's really relentless journalists who disregarded the rules of access journalism."
4. Glenn Greenwald feels Edward Snowden is doing the right thing by fleeing America, lest he end up like Bradley Manning: "He's been locked away in a cage for many years and we haven't heard from him."
5. Glenn Greenwald is of the opinion that a discussion regarding the appropriate level of government data collection needs to happen: "It's well past time that we have a debate about whether that's the kind of country and world in which we want to live."
