NSA spends more tax dollars on hacking than on defense: Snowden Updated: 2015-01-09 10:31:03 KST

American whistleblower Edward Snowden has claimed the NSA spends more taxpayer money on cyber-attacking other countries than it does on defending the country.
He made the statement in an hour-long interview filmed in June in Moscow that American broadcaster PBS is said to be preparing for broadcast.
In it, Snowden explains the U.S. intelligence agency became a "sort of the national hacking agency" in recent years as spies realized that they could receive a higher boost in budgets if they focused on hack-attacks.
He said the trend only served as setting a new international norm for other countries to the detriment of the security of Americans.
