Is Snowden a spy?
Edward Jay Epstein offers some new evidence for the theory that Snowden is a spy. In particular he says that NSA investigators now know that Snowden’s tactics included breaking into two dozen compartments using forged or stolen passwords. Once there, Snowden loosed an automated “spider” with instructions to scrape the compartments for particular information. In most cases, US officials have said, the data Snowden took was overwhelmingly of military and intelligence value to our adversaries and had little or nothing to do with privacy or whistleblowing.Posted by Michael Zeleny on 12 May 2014, 23:30
