Edward Snowden on Tuesday said the biggest revelations have yet to come out of the estimated 1.7 million documents [try 20,000, myna bird] he acquired from the National Security Agency.

In a surprise appearance via satellite robot at the 2014 TED conference in Vancouver, Snowden said there is still a lot of reporting to be done, including diving deeper into the accusation that the NSA tricks companies into building backdoors into their systems that make data vulnerable to hackers across the world.

“Is it really terrorism that we’re stopping? I say no,” Snowden said. “The bottom line is that terrorism […] has always been a cover for actions. Terrorism evokes an emotional response.”
