He is best known for a series of reports published from June by The Guardian newspaper detailing the United States and British global surveillance programs, and based on classified documents disclosed by Edward Snowden. He has written several best-selling books, including No Place to Hide. Before the Snowden file disclosures, Greenwald was considered one of the most influential opinion columnists in the United States. About his work in First Amendment speech cases, Greenwald told Rolling Stone magazine in , "to me, it's a heroic attribute to be so committed to a principle that you apply it not when it's easy Later, according to Greenwald, "I decided voluntarily to wind down my practice in because I could, and because, after ten years, I was bored with litigating full-time and wanted to do other things which I thought were more engaging and could make more of an impact, including political writing. In October , he began his blog Unclaimed Territory focusing on the investigation pertaining to the Plame affair , the CIA leak grand jury investigation , the federal indictment of Scooter Libby and the NSA warrantless surveillance —07 controversy. In February , Greenwald became a contributing writer for the Salon website, and the new column and blog superseded Unclaimed Territory , although Salon prominently features hyperlinks to it in Greenwald's dedicated biographical section. Among the frequent topics of his Salon articles were the investigation of the anthrax attacks and the candidacy of former CIA official John O. Brennan withdrew his name from consideration for the post after opposition centered in liberal blogs and led by Greenwald.
