(March 10, 2014) I’ve written several articles questioning Edward Snowden’s past history.
Now, another serious point comes to light.
Snowden claims he raised concerns about NSA spying more than 10 times before he went rogue with stolen files.
Here is the quote from the Washington Post (March 7):
"Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden said he repeatedly tried to go through official channels to raise concerns about government snooping programs but that his warnings fell on the deaf ears. In testimony to the European Parliament released Friday morning, Snowden wrote that he reported policy or legal issues related to spying programs to more than 10 officials, but as a contractor he had no legal avenue to pursue further whistleblowing.
“‘Yes [said Snowden]. I had reported these clearly problematic [NSA] programs to more than ten distinct officials, none of whom took any action to address them…’”
As I’ve written before, we are supposed to believe that the NSA, the biggest, richest, and smartest spying agency in the world just happened to forget to secure its own data against theft from its own employees and hired hands.
