Europe's spy agencies collaborated

Edward Snowden papers unmask close technical cooperation and loose alliance between British, German, French, Spanish and Swedish spy agencies

A loose but growing eavesdropping alliance has allowed intelligence agencies from one country to cultivate ties with corporations from another to facilitate the trawling of the web, according to GCHQ documents leaked by the former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.

Why did that little creep Ed Snowden choose to work for an agency that did work for the NSA if he was supposedly so shocked and horrified by what they did? What did he expect an intelligence agency did?

I'm not entirely sure he was 'shocked and horrified'.... I'm leaning rather heavily to him just grabbing at a golden opportunity to be famous...

none is the answer. the thing about snowden is his leaking only appeals to a minority of a minority of the population, the Guardian for which you quoted has seen the files and is using them to sell their paper in a long drawn out story - these revelations will only appeal to their readership which is the sandal wearing, tree hugging tofu, lentil eating lefty liberal. the Guardians circulation is only 200,000.
