Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop lashed out Wednesday at Edward Snowden, accusing the US intelligence leaker of "unprecedented treachery" after he unveiled Canberra's efforts to spy on Indonesia.Bishop praised cooperation with Washington and reserved harsh words for Snowden, whose revelations led Indonesia to halt work with Australia to stem people smuggling, a key priority for new conservative Prime Minister Tony Abbott.Shortly before a meeting with US Vice President Joe Biden in Washington, Bishop said Snowden "continues to shamefully betray his nation while skulking in Russia. Snowden has strongly denied allegations of betraying the United States, saying that he has not cooperated with foreign agencies and wanted to expose wrongdoing as he had no means to air concerns internally.Bishop welcomed Obama's reforms but said that Australia already had a sufficient level of oversight over its own operations.
