Do you remember the brouhaha created in 2013 over leaked classified information of the USA?
If you do, then you would surely remember the man behind the biggest intelligence leak, Edward Snowden. And if you don’t, here are the intriguing facts about the man who is a computer professional, privacy activist, former CIA employee, former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor.
The computer wizard Snowden started as a security guard at a covert NSA facility before moving on to CIA to work on IT security. The ex-CIA agent exposed vital information about the US government, especially the workings of US secret surveillance. He was charged with espionage.
But people have different views about Edward Snowden as some feel he is a patriot and call him a national hero, as he was concerned about people’s privacy. But many view him as a traitor who exposed national secrets of their country to the world.
Whatever the view, there’s no doubt that this computer geek has a vivid personality that is difficult to know through Edward Snowden’s Facebook or Twitter posts.
