    right now, and it's going to take a while to weed through it to the truth.  My brother and I were discussing this last week and he finds it interesting that Snowden went to China to talk, saying there is speculation that they paid the most for this information, information he decided to share with either an anti-America reporter or owner of the publication where the reporter works.  Snowden apparently talked about his $200,000 a year job, which it wasn't.  Misinformation abounds.  

    Just as in every news story of late, a lot of information comes out first and then the facts follow.  I hope we eventually get all the facts.  

    The GOP will destroy anything they can't own.

      I feel strong that our government should not be spying on us.  Just don't know how to stop it.

      Did you lie about your salary? What is the issue there? Why did you tell Glenn Greenwald that your salary was $200,000 a year, when it was only $122,000 (according to the firm that fired you.)
      Answer:

      I was debriefed by Glenn and his peers over a number of days, and not all of those conversations were recorded. The statement I made about earnings was that $200,000 was my "career high" salary. I had to take pay cuts in the course of pursuing specific work. Booz was not the most I've been paid.
