From a recent Tech Crunch article covering a Snowden interview at the New Yorker Festival:

"We can have secret programs. You know, the American people don't have to know the name of every individual that's under investigation. We don't need to know the technical details of absolutely every program in the intelligence community."

That's it, he's shown his hand.

He doesn't question whether covert organizations like the CIA are compatible with democratic government. This guy is no Philip Agee or John Stockwell. He's still keeping some of his tribal loyalties.
