contradict USAs role of advocacy for democracy and individual's freedom.
This is one of the worst act done by USA after wikileakes scam.On the eve
of this juncture, the world community should come forward with the help of
UN and put efforts to weave a new law which can safeguard the interest of
the sovereign countries and individual's rights from such lousy act and if
any other country tries to attempt the same in future.

Governments around the world may claim that security is vital issue, but there should be a system which keeps a balance between the national security and individual freedom. USA should act like a big brother to set example for other nations. but it is unfortunate that USA is thinking more about Edward Snowden then trying to clear things out. It is time we stand united and there is a desperate need to bring a robust international laws that could provide individual freedom in this cyber world.
