Global surveillance has a lot of purposes, other than to combat terrorism, these surveillance programs were employed to assess the foreign policy and economic stability of other countries, and to gather commercial secrets. In a statement addressed to the National Congress of Brazil in early August 2013, journalist Glenn Greenwald maintained that the U.S. government had used counter-terrorism as a pretext for clandestine surveillance in order to compete with other countries in the business, industrial and economic fields. In a December 2013 letter to the Brazilian government, Snowden wrote that these programs were never about terrorism: they are about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They are about power. According to White House panel member NSA didn't stop any terrorist attack. However NSA chief said, that surveillance programs stopped 54 terrorist plots today, this global surveillance system continues to grow.
