According to remarks by NSA Director General Keith Alexander, Edward Snowden may have shared as many as 200,000 classified documents with media sources.
At a speech on foreign affairs in Baltimore last month, Alexander was asked about measures the United States was taking against further leaks by Snowden. Alexander responded:
“I wish there was a way to prevent it. Snowden has shared somewhere between 50 (thousand) and 200,000 documents with reporters. These will continue to come out,” Alexander said.
Officials “remain unsure which documents he downloaded for leaking to the media.”
