Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who broke the first stories about the National Security Agency's global spy program, speaks via teleconference from Brazil at the 69th General Assembly of the Inter American Press Association in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Monday, Oct. 21, 2013.

Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who facilitated the leaks of former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden, promised Monday that many more reports regarding NSA’s international and domestic spying are in the pipeline.

In a videoconference with reporters from around the Americas, Greenwald said that the upcoming revelations will be as significant as the recently published disclosure that NSA intercepted over seventy million phone calls in France over a one-month period, the Associated Press reports.

Brazil-based Greenwald said that he was consulting with experienced editors and reporters on the potential harm of the leaks, but also called on journalists to “band together” in order to withstand the “sustained attack” on press freedom in the United States.
