Report: Snowden Took Job to Get NSA Intel

The South China Morning Post reported on Monday that fugitive leaker Edward Snowden said he had taken a job as an independent contractor at Booz Allen Hamilton for one reason: to gather information about NSA’s surveillance program. Snowden’s current whereabouts are unknown, but he is believed to have left Hong Kong on Sunday for Moscow and then rumored to have boarded a flight to Havana, Cuba, with his final destination likely to be Ecuador, where he is reportedly seeking asylum. Snowden has been charged with espionage by the U.S. government, who is seeking his extradition. Meanwhile in the U.S., more than 100,000 have signed a petition to the White House to pardon Snowden.
