Matrix One: who is Edward Snowden?
Update: the CIA has just refused a FIOA request for information about its former employee, Edward Snowden.
The request was filed on November 15 by John Young, the owner of Cryptome.org. The CIA’s response, dated December 29, refers to Young’s query seeking “records granting Edward Joseph Snowden access to classified information…[and] records indicating Mr. Snowden[‘s] compliance with controls of classified information upon leaving the CIA.”
The CIA’s letter to Young states, “…the CIA can neither confirm nor deny the existence or nonexistence of records responsive to your request.” The CIA letter states that any other response would violate rules governing classification of data.
Bottom line: the CIA has nothing specific to say about Snowden’s status while he worked for the Agency.
Once again, the question of exactly who Edward Snowden is resurfaces...
