Edward Snowden participated in his first public debate on encryption on Tuesday, April 26, 2016. CNN’s Fareed Zakaria debated Snowden on the issue.

Zakaria, in New York, defended the government’s right to access any and all encrypted messages and devices as long as there’s court approval. Snowden, speaking over a live video-link from Moscow, argued the security of the Internet is more important than the convenience of law enforcement. The debate was organized by NYU’s Wagner School of Public Service and the Century Foundation.

The Intercept has more information and the full video is available from The Century Foundation.

The trailer for the forthcoming Oliver Stone movie Snowden has been viewed over two million times less than 24 hours after it was posted on Youtube, suggesting huge interest in the story of one of America’s most polarizing heroes/traitors, ahead of the film’s release in September this year.

After the clip was posted, the real Edward Snowden, the CIA operative who smuggled vast amounts of data exposing the workings of the NSA, and is now living in Russia, tweeted: “For two minutes and thirty nine seconds, everybody at NSA just stopped working.”
