Former NSA Contractor turned whistleblower Edward Snowden has penned an open letter to the international community in an effort to stop what he calls a "sustained campaign of persecution" from the United States government. Snowden gave the letter to Hans-Christian Stroebele, a German lawmaker with whom he met at a secret location in Moscow on Thursday. Snowden told the German politician that he's ready to travel to Germany to assist in an inquiry concerning revelations that the U.S. had bugged Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone. Still he said, "I would rather go before the U.S. Congress, or a committee of the U.S. Congress and lay the facts on the table." Congress?
