The station did show other clips at a later point in time though, but they never showed what most people believe to be some of the most important segments of all, his shocking remarks about the 9/11 attacks.
During the interview, Edward Snowden stated that the United States had sufficient intelligence ahead of 9/11 but failed (or refused) to act by way of negligence:
“You know, and this is a key question that the 9/11 Commission considered. And what they found, in the post-mortem, when they looked at all of the classified intelligence from all of the different intelligence agencies, they found that we had all of the information we needed as an intelligence community, as a classified sector, as the national defense of the United States to detect this plot.
"We actually had records of the phone calls from the United States and out. The CIA knew who these guys were. The problem was not that we weren’t collecting information, it wasn’t that we didn’t have enough dots, it wasn’t that we didn’t have a haystack, it was that we did not understand the haystack that we have.
“The problem with mass surveillance is that we’re piling more hay on a haystack we already don’t understand, and this is the haystack of the human lives of every American citizen in our country.
"Or are we — are we trying to throw money at a magic solution that’s actually not just costing us our safety, but our rights and our way of life? Rather than look for a single needle in the haystack, ‘Let’s collect the whole haystack.’”
The comments are certainly thought provoking, but lead researchers to also question whether or not Snowden is controlled opposition parroting the narrative that it was just a failure of intelligence, rather than a deliberate well thought out plot carried in part by people within the United States government in concert with the alleged hijackers.
