A 29-year-old former CIA worker and current defense contractor employee has come forward as the source of the National Security Agency leaks to The Guardian newspaper:
The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell.
The Guardian, after several days of interviews, is revealing his identity at his request. From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong, he said.
Snowden will go down in history as one of Americas most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. He is responsible for handing over material from one of the worlds most secretive organisations the NSA.
In a note accompanying the first set of documents he provided, he wrote: I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions, but I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant.

I’ll make a deal with DC.
They stop importing islamderthals and secure our border and I’ll worry about the muslims already here.
CHECK YOUR SIX!
They already have the DNA of every child born in this country in the past 10 years. Permanently. Refusing to delete or destroy it.
Because. Or something.
So when does the IRS claim racism?
Gosh, I had forgotten all about the brain mapping. *chills*
“China will arrest him in Hong Kong, take him to China for some manufactured crime, hell end up dead, WH will shrug its shoulders.”
Obama met CHina’s president on Friday. Maybe they discussed that.
That would be the intelligent thing to do.
Excuse any double pings. This is a live one.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Dead man walking.
The US has an extradition treaty with Hong Kong; he might as well as jump off the balcony or put a bullet through his head.
Praying now for Edward Snowden’s protection.
wow. very intelligent, articulate, insightful, and courageous man. 29 years old! I applaud his commitment to transparency here.
Not only that,do not forget DHS. They are freaking evil. They concentrate on Americans. They don’t give a crap about preventing islamic terrorism. They don’t offend terrorists, only us. When you link surveillance of we the people and aunt janet’s war on us it is really really scary.
Can anyone tell me I am a conspiracy theorist? Cause this feels downright Orwellian. I want a don’t tread on me tatoo on my forehead,well maybe not quite there.
This young man is a true patriot.
It’s actually win-win for China to protect him: the populace is satisfied that free speech is protected, with the added bonus of sticking to POSHITUS and his tacky gifts and wife.
My money is on this guy. He's far smarter than Obama and Obama's henchmen... and I guarantee that he's has plenty of dirt of a lot of important people. This is going to be the story of a lifetime... far more so than Watergate ever was.
they can’t kill him now without validating the rest and looking as they truly are—tyrants. he has already done his job of exposure. the train has left the station. bless this man. he is an American hero.
