      Snowden: "I Have already Won"


      Business Standard reports intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden has said that he has already "accomplished" his mission by leaking details of global electronic surveillance by America that have embarrassed the Obama administration and forced a review of US spying policies.

      "For me, in terms of personal satisfaction, the mission's already accomplished," Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor, who honed hacking skills in India, told the Washington Post.

      "I already won," Snowden said in his first face-to-face interview since arriving in Russia in June and being given temporary asylum there, adds Business Standard.
