National Security Agency (NSA) leaker Edward Snowden on Thursday said he would be willing to return to the United States if he were able to mount a legal defense as a whistleblower.

“Returning to the US, I think, is the best resolution for the government, the public, and myself, but it’s unfortunately not possible in the face of current whistleblower protection laws, which through a failure in law did not cover national security contractors like myself,” Snowden wrote during an online chat.

The remark came the same day that Attorney General Eric Holder said the administration would be willing to “engage in conversations” with Snowden if he accepted responsibility for his actions.
