Assange at SXSW: 'Who really wears the pants in the administration?'

Caitlin McGarry | March 10, 2014
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange questions Obama's power over the NSA during Day 2 of the SXSW Festival in Austin.

The NSA's programs are a concern even to billionaires like eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, whose First Look Media publishes Greenwald's new journalistic venture The Intercept.

"The threat of the surveillance complex is so severe that it threatens [people like Omidyar]," Assange said.

Less than 1 percent of Snowden's documents have been released to the public, so we can expect more information to come. Assange also said WikiLeaks plans to dump "important upcoming material" in the near future, but wouldn't say when.

"I don't like to give timeframes because it helps opponents of the material prepare," he said.
