Report: Snowden Took Job Just for Intel


edward-snowdenThe South China Morning Post reported today that fugitive leaker Edward Snowden said he had taken a job as an independent contractor at Booz Allen Hamilton for one reason: to gather information about NSA’s surveillance program.

Snowden’s current whereabouts are unknown, but he is believed to have left Hong Kong on Sunday for Moscow and then rumored to have boarded a flight to Havana, Cuba, with his final destination likely to be Ecuador, where he is reportedly seeking asylum.

Snowden has been charged with espionage by the U.S. government, who is seeking his extradition.

Meanwhile in the U.S., more than 100,000 have signed a petition to the White House to pardon Snowden. Read more at South China Morning Post.

  1. So it’s bad enough, his initial crime was just inserting a USB device into a government computer – could probably get 5 years just for that alone.

    But to only take the position to perform counterintelligence against his own country, wow.

    Not sure I believe anything a Chinese news mill would spew, but if it’s true…. then he should be locked away.
