The NSA's illegal surveillance techniques are leaked to the public by one of the agency's employees, Edward Snowden, in the form of thousands of classified documents distributed to the press. In 2013, NSA contractor Edward Snowden leaked a large number of classified documents to the media, exposing the U.S. government’s covert surveillance activities. Some call the whistleblower a hero, while others call him a traitor. Spanning his time in the Army, the CIA and the NSA, Snowden uncovers the extent of the government’s spying programs, coming to the realization that the public’s understanding of privacy is far from the truth. His acts have been classified as treason and have made him one of the most wanted men in the world.
