A GOOD AMERICAN
The mass surveillance and wiretapping revealed by Edward Snowden in 2013 is not the first scandal in the history of The National Security Agency (NSA). The Good American, a journalistic documentary-thriller, reveals an alarming story about corruption, lies and selfish ambitions of individuals, as a result of which a multiple useful and cheap monitoring system, which would potentially prevent terrorist attacks, was rejected just three weeks before 9/11.
