In an interview with the South China Morning on June 12, Edward Snowden disclosed that his only reason for taking the position with Booz Allen Hamilton was go gather evidence of US spying.
“My position with Booz Allen Hamilton granted me access to lists of machines all over the world the NSA hacked,” he told the Post.
“That is why I accepted that position about three months ago.”
The newspaper said when he was asked if he specifically went to Booz Allen Hamilton to gather evidence of surveillance, he replied: “Correct on Booz.”
China and Hong Kong have been friendly to Snowden, securing his safe passage out of the country while ignoring US calls for his detainment. His current whereabouts are unknown, although Ecuador has confirmed he has submitted a request for asylum, Snowden has yet to arrive.
