He has a huge number of documents that would be very harmful to the US government if they were made public,” Greenwald said. He added that Washington should be exercising care in dealing with the Snowden because he has the potential to do further damage to the US. “The US government should be on its knees every day begging that nothing happen to Snowden, because if something does happen to him, all the information will be revealed and it could be its worst nightmare,” he said. Greenwald said that “the most important thing [for Snowden] is not to end up in US custody,” describing the government's approach to people who reveal uncomfortable truths as “vindictive.” When asked whether he believed that someone would attempt to harm or kill the whistleblower, he said that Snowden has “already distributed thousands of documents and made sure that several people around the world have their entire file,” stating that it would be beneficial for anyone to attempt assassination. He added that the US should be praying that no one would attempt to take Snowden's life. “If something happens, all the information will be revealed, and that would be [America's] worst nightmare,” he said.
