Greenwald to publish list of U.S. citizens NSA spied on

It turns out that award-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald—one of the best out there today—is going to publish the list of those on whom the NSA spied on.

The Washington TImes reports:

Glenn Greenwald, one of the reporters who chronicled the document dump by National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden via the U.K. press, now said he’s set to publish his most dramatic piece yet: The names of those in the United States targeted by the NSA 
“One of the big questions when is comes to domestic spying is, ‘Who have been the NSA’s specific targets?’ Are they political critics and dissidents and activists? Are they genuinely people we’d regard as terrorists? What are the metrics and calculations that go into choosing those targets and what is done with the surveillance that is conducted? Those are the kinds of questions that I want to still answer,”Mr. Greenwald told The Sunday Times of London.
Be on the lookout for this. I certainly will. And let's hope the list gets out—I'm looking forward to it personally (if only to know who the NSA spied on).
