Didn’t Edward Snowden quit when he leaked top-secret documents and fled to Hong Kong? In any case, his former employer Booz Allen Hamilton fired him yesterday. “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,” the company said in a statement. “We will work closely with our clients and authorities in their investigation of this matter.” Snowden, 29, had worked at Booz Allen for less than three months, stationed in Hawaii.
