Glenn Greenwald told Fox News during an interview Tuesday that “the world will be shocked” by his next big story about the National Security Agency.

“You’re going to have to wait along with everybody else,” the Guardian columnist coyly responded to Eric Bolling when pressed about the information he was planning to detail. “I will say that there are vast programs, both domestic and international spying, that the world will be shocked to learn about, that the NSA is engaged in with no democratic accountability and that’s what driving our reporting.”

Greenwald also ripped President Obama for the U.S.’ pursuit of NSA leaker Edward Snowden, claiming the administration was trying to “intimidate future whistle-blowers from coming forward.”

“I think what the Obama administration wants and has been trying to establish for almost five years now with the unprecedented war on whistle-blowers that it is waging is to make it so that everybody is petrified of coming forward with information about what our political officials are doing in the dark that is deceitful, illegal or corrupt,” he said. “They don’t care about Edward Snowden at this point. He can no longer do anything that he hasn’t already done.”
