UK MI5's former head claims US will make deal with Snowden to halt further leaks

London, Dec. 28 : Former head of the Britain's Security Service MI5, Dame Eliza Manningham Buller, has reportedly claimed that the US would strike a deal with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in exchange for assurance of not further revealing the classified information.

Buller said that she did not support publication of the classified data adding that the whistleblower would be offered a deal by the US to not release further data.

According to the Independent, Buller said that people might think of Snowden as a hero, having done a public service, but they can't judge the damage done to counter-terrorism.

Snowden's revelations had alleged that the US and UK spy agencies targeted citizens and global leaders alike as part of the mass surveillance of telephone records.
