    Democracy Now - "Nearly a year after he first met Edward Snowden, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist
    Glenn Greenwald continues to unveil new secrets about the National Security Agency and the
    surveillance state. His new book, "No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S.
    Surveillance State," is being published today. It includes dozens of previously secret NSA documents,
    including new details on how the NSA routinely intercepts routers, servers and other computer
    hardware devices being exported from the United States. According to leaked documents published in
    the book, the NSA then implants backdoor surveillance tools, repackages the devices with a factory
    seal and sends them on. This gives the NSA access to entire networks and all their users. The book
    includes one previously secret NSA file that shows a photo of an agent opening a box marked CISCO.
    Below it reads a caption: "Intercepted packages are opened carefully." Another memo observes that
    some signals intelligence tradecraft is "very hands-on (literally!).""
