Just as Edward J. Snowden was preparing to leave Geneva and a job as a C.I.A. technician in 2009, his supervisor wrote a derogatory report in his personnel file, noting a distinct change in the young man’s behavior and work habits, as well as a troubling suspicion. The C.I.A. suspected that Mr. Snowden was trying to break into classified computer files to which he was not authorized to have access, and decided to send him home, according to two senior American officials. But the red flags went unheeded. Mr. Snowden left the C.I.A. to become a contractor for the National Security Agency, and four years later he leaked thousands of classified documents. The supervisor’s cautionary note and the C.I.A.’s suspicions apparently were not forwarded to the N.S.A. or its contractors, and surfaced only after federal investigators began scrutinizing Mr. Snowden’s record once the documents began spilling out, intelligence and law enforcement officials said.THIS MAKES ME MORE SURE THAN EVER THAT SNOWDEN IS NOT A WHISTLEBLOWER, BUT A SPY - PROBABLY WORKING FOR PUTIN AND PROBABLY RECRUITED WHILE HE WAS IN SWITZERLAND.
THINK ABOUT IT:
HE WENT LOOKING FOR THINGS NOT IN HIS PURVIEW; THAT'S NOT WHAT WHISTLEBLOWERS DO. WHISTLEBLOWERS REVEAL THINGS THEY DSCOVER IN THEIR PURVIEW.
THINK ABUT IT:
HE STARTED WHILE IN GENEVA - A HOTBED OF INTERNATIONAL SPYING.
THINK ABOUT IT:
HE'S LIVING IN RUSSIA. PROBABLY HIS GOAL THE WHOLE TIME.
PUTIN HAS PROBABLY GIVEN HIM A DACHA AND AN UNLIMITED CREDIT CARD WHOSE BILL GOES TO THE KGB.
