“You have no idea yet”, The Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald tells Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant in an interview held in the Royal Tulip hotel in Rio de Janeiro, saying he believes the scope of US spying on the Netherlands is “above and beyond everyone’s expectations”.

The American born journalist bases his information on documents handed to him by former CIA worker Edward Snowden.

“It is all about power, both economically and politically”, Greenwald explains to Dutch journalist Marjolein van de Water. “Their ultimate goal is to end internet freedom. Because the more the US knows about people, the more control they have over them.”

Until now, the Dutch government hasn’t shown any signs of panic. In a statement in September, the Minister of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, Ronald Plasterk, emphasized it is “gratifying and encouraging” that the Obama administration, as a result of the Snowden leaks, has promised “more transparency” when it comes to privacy and national security.

The Guardian journalist sheds a light on the lackluster attitude of the Dutch government:

Greenwald on Snowden Leaks: The Worst Is Yet to Come
By Vivienne Walt / Rio de Janeiro @vivwaltOct. 14, 20130

Although four months have passed since Edward Snowden’s explosive NSA surveillance leaks, the most revealing details have not yet been published, and could be rolled out in the international media over the coming weeks and months, beginning with U.S. spying activities involving Spain and France. That’s according to Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who broke the Snowden story last June, and whose life has been drastically upturned since. “There are a lot more stories,” he said on Monday in Rio de Janeiro, where he lives. “The archives are so complex and so deep and so shocking, that I think the most shocking and significant stories are the ones we are still working on, and have yet to publish.”

Greenwald was speaking in a packed university gymnasium to hundreds of journalists, who are gathered here this week for the Global Investigative Journalism Conference, a two-yearly event that rotates around the world, bringing together writers, television producers and editors to share information and collaborate on work. Here, Greenwald was something of a hero — the entire thrust of the conference centers on ferreting out secrets and wrongdoing—and the journalist received a rock-star welcome. And while Rio was chosen as the location for the conference years ago, it proved a fortuitous spot. Greenwald recently revealed on Brazil´s hugely popular Globo TV that the NSA had spied on President Dilma Rousseff, as well as the government oil company Petrobras. The news caused a furor in Brazil, not least from Rousseff herself, and she canceled a White House visit, originally scheduled for next week.
