Edward Snowden Weighs In On CISA: “It’s A Surveillance Bill.”

[On November 27], NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden joined Fight for the Future’s Q&A session on reddit to weigh in on the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA,) the controversial “cybersecurity” bill that is expected to see a vote on the Senate floor this afternoon. “CISA isn't a cybersecurity bill,” Snowden wrote in the reddit “IAmA” thread, “It's not going to stop any attacks. It's not going to make us any safer. It's a surveillance bill. What it allows is for the companies you interact with every day -- visibly, like Facebook, or invisibly, like AT&T -- to indiscriminately share private records about your interactions and activities with the government.”

Note:  The Senate approved CISA when the vote came to the floor.
