Snowden Got Help in Snooping from NSA Colleague

Feb 14 2014, 3:56am CST | by , in News | Misc

Edward Snowden didn’t manage his heist singlehandedly. Allegedly he got some help in his snooping activities from an NSA colleague. Snowden gained access to his password and it was “Open Sesame” from there onwards.

Snowden Got Help in Snooping from NSA Colleague

An NSA employee had his title and designation stripped after it was discovered that he had allowed Edward Snowden to use his password. Snowden got access to some very vital information through this fellow worker who is currently being disciplined. 

Besides him there are two others, a military man and a contractor, who are held to be responsible for abetting Edward Snowden in his wrongdoings. The NSA began a cleanup operation of its rank and file to weed out suspicious elements. 

According to the grapevine, Edward Snowden approached 20 to 25 people in the NSA while he was on duty as a contractor. A few are suspected to have aided him in his nefarious plans. 

The security flaw that led to Snowden fleeing with confidential information was the largest of its kind in the annals of US history. It made the United States government and its agencies appear shamefaced before the rest of the world due to their spying behavior.

Snowden was a trickster who surreptitiously gained access to a coworker’s password. From there onwards it was plain sailing for Snowden. He made off with thousands of documents that were top secret material. 

However, in a rejoinder to this accusation, Edward Snowden has flatly denied having ever swiped any password. Only time will reveal who is lying and who is speaking the truth.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
