Guardian Reveals NSA Leaker: Edward Snowden Is the PRISM Whistleblower Says He Will Defect to China

Edward Snowden: the whistleblower behind revelations of NSA surveillance
The 29-year-old source behind the biggest intelligence leak in the NSA’s history explains his motives, his uncertain future and why he never intended on hiding in the shadows.

“I could be rendered… You can’t come forward against the world’s most intelligence agancy and be completely free from risk because there’s so much powerful adversaries that no one can easily oppose. If they want to get you, they’ll get you in time.“

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.

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.

Snowden will go down in history as one of America’s most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. He is responsible for handing over material from one of the world’s most secretive organisations – the NSA.

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.”

Despite his determination to be publicly unveiled, he repeatedly insisted that he wants to avoid the media spotlight. “I don’t want public attention because I don’t want the story to be about me. I want it to be about what the US government is doing.”\\\

This is all more then I can grasp, no matter who the person is for me the main thing is we are stuck with Obama and that concerns me more then anything.

I also don't know where to go on this. For the present I have to guess this guy may be a traitor. I'll just wait and see how it pans out. Either way, I hope it hurts obama's presidency.
