Can you start by telling you why you did what you did?

and how you got access to so much information and ...

Glenn .. Shall we start with your name?

My name is Edward Joseph Snowden.

I am 29 years old. I work at a supplier to the NSA.

I have also worked for the CIA and subcontractors to them.

I have worked with different things in ESM the past nine years.

I've been a systems engineer.

I have been a solution consultant

and senior advisor to the CIA.

So nine wild become part of specialstyrkan !? Yes, Sir!

I think the special forces would be ashamed of yourselves!

Am I right in that? No, sir!

Left right. Left

so we run a convoy in Iraq.

Come on, soldier!


Come on, you worthless worm, on the move!

Come on, soldier!

Get up!

Snowden, what the hell are you doing? Where's your f***ing heart ?! Here, sir!

Take your time into your chicken breasts and jerk it out!

Find it and get your silly ass up in the tower!

Sir, yes, sir! Get out of my sight!

I need you in the tower, gentlemen! Move!

Move! Come on!

Rise and shine, your worms! Release your dick off and came out of the barracks!

You have one minute to you! Closing!



Snowden? Where the hell is Snowden ?! Help!

You have gone around on two broken legs for weeks.

This is what happens to a 35 kilo backpack on a 65 kg body.

You get these kinds of stress fractures. Take it easy. Sorry.

More and more in the tibia here, and in the end, they break.

You will be here in a few weeks, and then around eight weeks on crutches.

Okay, when can I come back?

If you ever land on your feet again, airborne or not, your bones pulverized.

I will give you administrative dismissal.

There are many other ways to serve your country.


"Ghost in the Shell 'is one of my favorites too.

Are you so pale in reality?

Have you committed a crime that you have not been caught?


Have you ever cheated on a test?


Do you think the US is the best country? Yes.

Why do you work at the CIA?

How would you explain the Internet for a child?

Your grandfather ended up as admiral and joined the FBI.

Your father has been in the Coast Guard for thirty years.

What has been the most important day of your life?

11th September. We thought that my grandfather was inside the Pentagon.

It turned out that he was not there that day.

So you wanted to be in special forces? Yes sir, I love their motto.

"They oppresso liber" Is that what you hope to do with us?

Freeing people from oppression?

I want to help my country to make a difference in the world.

Internet is a technology that has the ability

To get everyone in the world to understand each other.

You were a question from perfect results at the entrance exam to the army.
