Guardian makes splash in US with security scoops

FILE - This is a Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012 file photo of the editor of the Guardian newspaper Alan Rusbridger as he leaves Downing street after a meeting of fellow newspaper editors and the British Prime Minister David Cameron following the release of the Leveson media inquiry in London. The Guardian newspaper, which started publishing in the English city of Manchester in 1821 and is now based in London, has in the last two days established a major presence in Washington by uncovering the vast scope of secret surveillance operations carried out by U.S. officials. The revelations have put President Barack Obama and his national security team on the defensive with reports of government snooping on a comprehensive scale. Its coverage expanded to Britain on Friday June 7, 2013 with an exclusive report that Britain’s electronic surveillance agency has had access to data collected by the Americans.
