FORMER US OFFICIAL: The NSA Thinks Edward Snowden Copied ‘Almost Everything That Place Does’
June 25, 2013
U.S. officials believe that Edward Snowden may have copied “almost everything [the NSA] does,” Ellen Nakashima and Greg Miller of The Washington Post report.
As of last night it was reported that officials didn’t know how much Snowden took from the NSA’s Hawaii facility where he worked as a Booz Allen contract er.
“They think he copied so much stuff — that almost everything that place does, he has,” one former government official, referring to the NSA, told The Post. “Everyone’s nervous about what the next thing will be, what will be exposed.”
Earlier this month, Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald told The New York Times that Snowden gave him “thousands” of documents, “dozens” of which Greenwald says are newsworthy.
Greenwald recently told CNN that he knows Snowden “has in his possession thousands of documents, which, if published, would impose crippling damage on the United States’ surveillance capabilities and systems around the world.”
