Former NSA spy turned whistleblower Edward Snowden may soon ‘disappear’ following his mega leak regarding the NSA tracking operation known as PRISM, and new information reveals it may already be in the works.
Four Senior US intelligence officials were coming from a conference
held by the NSA in Washington DC, when afterwards at the UAL (United
Airlines Lounge) the four men were supposedly being “loud” and sounded as if they were “almost bragging” when discussing the now well-known whistleblower, Edward Snowden.
According to Foreign policy analyst and editor of The Atlantic Steve Clemons, he is in possession of several poor quality photos and a muffled recording of the four supposed officials discussing and joking about how people like that ‘disappear’. The
four people in question are not identified as of yet, and Steve Clemons
has an open invite for them to come forward to ‘clarify their remarks’.
We have yet to determine whether or not the voices reportedly
recorded by Clemons line up to any officials, of course, as neither the
audio nor the visuals have been released. Clemons also claims that there
was a second as of yet unnamed person with him who shares not only his
concerns about the conversation, but also his interpretation.
Steve Snowden, the whistleblower and former CIA contractor and NSA consultant gave The Guardian
permission to reveal his identity last week, he has since fled to Hong
Kong and is trying to avoid any international entanglements.
Mr. Snowden told Glenn Greenwald, the reporter for The Guardian who
helped with breaking this story, “Whenever we had a debate in the office
on how to handle crimes, they do not defend due process – they defend
decisive action.” He went on to state that his $200,000 a year job was
not worth the giving up of liberties, and that someone had to “Send a
message to government that people will not be intimidated.” .
