OK Perhaps its not that surprising.
Booz Allen Statement on Reports of Leaked Information
June 11, 2013
(Updated Information Underlined)
Booz Allen can confirm that Edward Snowden, 29, was an employee of our firm for less than 3 months, assigned to a team in Hawaii. Snowden, who had a salary at the rate of $122,000, was terminated June 10, 2013 for violations of the firm’s code of ethics and firm policy. News reports that this individual has claimed to have leaked classified information are shocking, and if accurate, this action represents a grave violation of the code of conduct and core values of our firm. We will work closely with our clients and authorities in their investigation of this matter.
But then again we did learn some important information…such as Snowden wasn’t making $200K only $122K.
One real question I would like to know is how did he get top secret clearance? He was only there for 3 months. Another is why didn’t he have a supervisor looking at what he was doing? And finally why hasn’t Booz Allen been fired as a government contractor? I would say that Snowden’s leak was a pretty major and unforgivable screw up.
