Snowden Only Worked For Booz for 3 Months

Via Booz Allen:
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.

The real scandal is how the hell he was able to get access to all of this. I blame NSA leadership AND Congressional oversight. Both should be changed -- now. - Greg Pollowitz
