Snowden Disclosures Get Mystical

The latest disclosures came March 18 in a Washington Post report about a voice-interception program called Mystic. Mystic is able to siphon all of the telephone calls from a target country and stores them for 30 days. NSA analysts are able to replay calls and take voice clippings of interesting bits for further investigation and longer-term storage.

After each new Snowden revelation is disclosed, I have wondered how many more are left. How many more unimaginable things will the whistleblower and his trove of classified documents reveal?

It's a question Snowden himself has now (partially) answered. In a March 18 session at the TED Vancouver event, whistleblower participated via a remote Web link. The TED conference has posted a full video of the conversation as well. Snowden also participated via a Web link March 10 at the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference.

"There are absolutely more revelations to come," Snowden said at the TED Vancouver event. "Some of the most important reporting is yet to come."
