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, reports The Guardian.

UPDATE 2:

The Guardian says:
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.

UPDATE 3

From The Guardian:
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."

  1. How symbolic that a Booz Allen employee did the reveal and that he took a swing at irresistible executive powers that rule the world, one of which is The Carlyle Group. Booz Alllen Hamilton is a Carlyle affiliate. Individuals with consciences are the chink in the armor of the Government-Corporate Monstrosity.

  3. When all this is completed, this young man will be counted among the finest this country has EVER produced. It is up to us to form a human shield around him to protect him from the scum that will attempt to destroy him.
