N.S.A. Contractor Arrested in Possible New Theft of Secrets (Secret Arrests in America)

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. secretly arrested a formerNational Security Agency contractor in August and, according to law enforcement officials, is investigating whether he stole and disclosed highly classified computer code developed by the agency to hack into the networks of foreign governments.

The arrest raises the embarrassing prospect that for the second time in three years, a contractor for the consulting company Booz Allen Hamilton managed to steal highly damaging secret information while working for the N.S.A. In 2013, Edward J. Snowden, who was also a Booz Allen contractor, took a vast trove of documents from the agency that were later passed to journalists, exposing surveillance programs in the United States and abroad.

Hmm... the timing of this information is very interesting. Looks like we might have a Snowden 2.0?  I hope he got a ton of info and put it somewhere safe for exposure later. If the NSA weren't so crooked, American patriots would have no desire to steal info and release it to the public to tell them what is going on. But, as with everything ABC, it rotted and redundant!
