Edward Snowden didn’t just leak little bits of information. According to a former NSA contractor, Edward Snowden stole every single bit of information and is holding on to it as a ransom for protection.
“He stole everything — literally everything,” the official said. “It’s only accessible for a few hours a day, and is triple encrypted to the point where no one can break it.”
The retired official doesn’t know how the situation is going to pan out. Another NSA task force official suggested the organization is considering offering Snowden amnesty in return for the safe return of the data because of the sensitive nature of the documents.
