- UK intelligence agents have been moved
because Russia and China have access to classified information which
reveals how they operate, reports said over the weekend.
According to the Sunday Times, Moscow and Beijing have deciphered
documents stolen by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
But Glenn Greenwald, a former Guardian journalist and the man who
Snowden first contacted, said the story was based on quotes from
"unknown, unnamed cowards".
“It’s not journalism; it’s acting as subservient stenographers for
the government,” he said.
