Russia’s president is speaking out about NSA leaker and former Maryland resident Edward Snowden.
In hiding and on the run. U.S. authorities are desperately trying to find the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked U.S. intelligence secrets.
Criminal charges are brought against the former NSA contractor who explosed two of the government’s top secret surveillance programs.
In the suburbs edged by woods midway between Baltimore and the nation’s capital, residents long joked that the government spy shop next door was so ultra-secretive its initials stood for “No Such Agency.” But when Edward Snowden grew up here, the National Security Agency’s looming presence was both a very visible and accepted part of everyday life.
A full scale manhunt for Edward Snowden is on. The Maryland native is in hiding somewhere in Hong Kong, after leaking details about NSA spying programs.
Before there was Edward Snowden and the leak of explosive documents showing widespread government surveillance, there was Mark Klein — a telecommunications technician who alleged that AT&T was allowing U.S. spies to siphon vast amounts of customer data without warrants.
The Justice Department is now preparing criminal charges against the CIA employee who has admitted to leaking secret document, revealing government surveillance of phone records from millions of Americans.
The Maryland man who admits he exposed two classified NSA surveillance programs says he did it to inform the public.
