The Guardian receives shadowy threats from the U.K. Government
The Guardian is reporting perhaps the strangest and yet most sinister twist yet in the ongoing NSA surveillance scandal surrounding Edward Snowden. The newspaper says it received shadowy threats from the "centre" of the U.K. government, demanding the return of any data the paper had received from Snowden. The paper "had [its] fun," and it was over. Then the government sent some representatives to the Guardian to shred the relevant hard drives. Yes, you read that correctly.
