Edward Snowden and CIA

In March 2007, the CIA stationed Snowden with diplomatic cover in Geneva, Switzerland, where he was responsible for maintaining computer-network security. Snowden described his CIA experience in Geneva as formative, stating that the CIA deliberately got a Swiss banker drunk and encouraged him to drive home. Snowden said that when the latter was arrested for drunk driving, a CIA operative offered to help in exchange for the banker becoming an informant.

Edward Snowden with NSA

Snowden’s decision to leak NSA documents developed gradually following his March 2007 posting as a technician at the Geneva CIA station. Snowden later made contact with Glenn Greenwald, a journalist working at The Guardian.

Snowden flew to Hong Kong, where he was staying when the initial articles based on the leaked documents were published. Within months, documents had been obtained and published by media outlets worldwide, most notably The Guardian (Britain), and Der Spiegel (Germany).

Snowden applied for political asylum in 21 countries. Ecuador had initially offered Snowden a temporary travel document but later withdrew it. After evaluating the law and Snowden’s situation, the French interior ministry rejected his request for asylum.

On June 23, 2013, Snowden landed at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport aboard a commercial Aeroflot flight from Hong Kong. After 40 days in the transit section, he left the airport on August 1 and was granted temporary asylum in Russia for one year by the Federal Migration Service.

In November 2020, Snowden announced that he and his wife, Lindsay, who was expecting their son in late December, were applying for dual U.S.-Russian citizenship.

In 2013, Donald Trump made a series of tweets in which he referred to Snowden as a “traitor”, saying he gave “serious information to China and Russia” and “should be executed”. Later that year he added a caveat, tweeting “If it and he could reveal Obama’s [birth] records, I might become a major fan”.
