Edward Snowden Took NSA Job Specifically to Steal Secret Documents
Today the pro-Beijing South China Morning Post reveals that NSA leaker Edward Snowden took his job with contractor Booz Allen for only one reason: to steal top secret documents.
This development confirms what many had already suspected. It made no sense that an extreme civil libertarian and Ron Paul supporter like Snowden would want to work for the NSA — but now we know he intended to steal the documents from the beginning.
And it makes this statement by advocacy journalist Glenn Greenwald very pertinent:
@TheStalwart The reality is that Laura Poitras and I have been working with him since February, long before anyone spoke to Bart Gellman
Note: Snowden started working for Booz Allen in March.
Flashback: When Andrew Sullivan suggested Snowden might have taken the Booz Allen job specifically to leak secrets, Glenn Greenwald called it a “moronic conspiracy theory.”
Completely figures that Andrew Sullivan is channeling this moronic conspiracy theory - HE WORKED AT NSA SINCE 2009!!! http://t.co/foIzTtbpZr
