The White House says it has launched an investigation into how classified documents about a National Security Agency program were leaked, and U.S. leaders continue to explain policy regarding data gathering and the computer system behind the PRISM program. Edward Snowden, a Booz Allen Hamilton infrastructure analyst who worked for the NSA, is taking responsibility for leaking the documents. "I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded. That is not something I am willing to support or live under," Snowden said in an interview.
