“If we can run a rendition, a kidnapping, a detention program, a torture program, keep it secret for years, and then when it is revealed, hold no one to account, what does this mean for the future direction of our society?” NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden said after the U.S. Senate’s release of the CIA torture report.

Snowden made his comments during an Amnesty International event in Paris. He also said he has a normal, domestic working life in Moscow but that he misses home.
