It's Official: Booz Allen Fires NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden

The official statement from Booz Allen Hamilton:

Booz Allen Statement on Reports of Leaked Information

June 11, 2013

(Updated Information Underlined)
Booz Allen can confirm that Edward Snowden, 29, was an employee of our firm for less than 3 months, assigned to a team in Hawaii. Snowden, who had a salary at the rate of $122,000, was terminated June 10, 2013 for violations of the firm’s code of ethics and firm policy. News reports that this individual has claimed to have leaked classified information are shocking, and if accurate, this action represents a grave violation of the code of conduct and core values of our firm. We will work closely with our clients and authorities in their investigation of this matter.


  1. The biggest thing that these people fear is not so much the information leak, itself; in fact, this information, such as the site in Utah and what it's for, was out before this event occurred. It's just that nobody paid attention to it because it wasn't from a major news source or took to be as a major event against the state.

    They're more afraid of the fact that people are getting brave about exposing lies. It's the people's reaction that they care about. The government does do transparency mainly because it's too big not to, but nobody pays attention or believes the state (their god) would do such things. Transparency is fine just as long as the people are sheep.

  2. Are they going to mail him his last paycheck? The way I see it, they owe him till the 10th.


  3. It would appear that the great sucking shoat has become aware that the erect and ever-flowing government nipple may soon be yanked from its gaping maw, and is expressing its "shock" at [the] grave violation of [its] code of conduct and core values.

    Kinda, sorta, chokes you all up inside like a bout with projectile diarrhea, don't it???

  4. Why is Snowden's salary salient? Is this supposed to attenuate public sympathy for him? If he earned, say, $65k I doubt that would make the lede.
