Edward Snowden: And ultimately, the truth sinks in that no matter what justification you're selling yourself, this is not about terrorism. Terrorism is the excuse. This is about economic and social control. And the only thing you're really protecting is the supremacy of your government.
Edward Snowden: I think the greatest freedom that I have gained, the fact that I don't have to worry about what happens tomorrow, Because I'm happy with what I've done Today.
Edward Snowden: So, this is data collection for the month of March worldwide, emails and Skype calls. So France, 70 million. Germany, 500 million. Brazil, two billion. Inside the U.S., 3.1 billion emails and calls. That's not including any of the telecom company data.
NSA Dep. Director Lowell: Okay, so what's the collection in Russia?
Edward Snowden: Russia is 1.5 billion.
NSA Dep. Director Lowell: Wait, so we're collecting twice as much in the U.S. as we are in Russia?
Catfish: In Vegas, looking at Afghanistan. We all knew that it was a kid. Poof. He's gone. But same village, two, three days later. We see the funeral party. We knew it was a kid that they were burying. Moms and dads wailing. And then the order comes down. Hit 'em. Poof. And they are gone in a cloud of dust.
Edward Snowden: But Austria?
Edward Snowden: So, you're, um, an engineer?
Hank Forrester: Am I an engineer? Instructor and counselor, too. I'm supposed to keep an eye on you CTs, make sure you don't buckle under the pressure. Turn to drugs and booze.
Edward Snowden: Well, you won't have that problem with me. I don't drink or do drugs.
Hank Forrester: What is your sin of choice?
Edward Snowden: Uh, computers.
Hank Forrester: Well, then, Snowden, you've come to the right little whorehouse.
Edward Snowden: Terrorism is just an excuse.
Corbin O'Brian: With foreign site intel transfer. Transfers happen on collection now. They go straight to the Pentagon, Mossad if they need it.
Edward Snowden: You didn't tell me we were running a dragnet on the whole world, Corbin.
Corbin O'Brian: Bombs won't stop terrorism, brains will, and we don't have nearly enough of those. I'm gonna give you a shot, Snowden.
Corbin O'Brian: The modern battlefield is everywhere.
