Alan Rusbridger

Editor of The Guardian newspaper Alan Rusbridger gives evidence to the Commons Home Affairs Committee hearing on counter-terrorism at Portcullis House, central London, Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013. Alan Rusbridger has been questioned by Parliament’s home affairs committee as part of a session on counter-terrorism, following The Guardian’s publishing of a series of stories based on Edward Snowden’s leaks disclosing the scale of surveillance by spy agencies in the United States and Britain. The editor of The Guardian says his newspaper has published just 1 percent of the material it received from former National Security Agency contractor Snowden and “made very selective judgments” about what to publish and had not revealed any intelligence staffers’ names. He said: “We have published no names and we have lost control of no names.” Government and intelligence officials have said the leaks compromised British security and aided terrorists. (AP Photo/PA)
