British Prime Minister David Cameron warned that government action would follow the publication by newspapers of Snowden's NSA leaks.
As Reuters reported on the P.M.'s comments, which Glenn Greenwald has called "repressive":
"If they [newspapers] don't demonstrate some social responsibility it will be very difficult for government to stand back and not to act," Cameron told parliament, saying Britain's Guardian newspaper had "gone on" to print damaging material after initially agreeing to destroy other sensitive data.
