In The Snowden Files, Luke Harding tells the story of Edward Snowden and the individuals behind the biggest leak in history.

Edward Snowden, a young computer genius working for America's National Security Agency, blew the whistle on the way this frighteningly powerful organisation uses new technology to spy on the entire planet. The consequences have shaken the leaders of nations worldwide.

This is the inside story of Snowden's deeds and the journalists who faced down pressure from the US and UK governments to break a remarkable scoop.

From the day he left his glamorous girlfriend in Hawaii, carrying a hard drive full of secrets, to the weeks of secret-spilling in Hong Kong and his battle for asylum, Snowden's story reads like a globe-trotting thriller.

  • Snow is CIA stooge for silicon valley -

    by on

    :: Spoiler Alert ::

    Let the buyer beware -an also Belive in e'spirit decorps!
    Facts of life: 1.All real truth are sold to the public and fictions novels
    example: fake assassinations, body doubles -Watch movie Double trouble ( terence/spencer) it is about nelson mandela, pope john paul1 ( latter I am 50% sure)

    corrolary? non-ficiton , so called true crimes are lies and just hype. Snowden is classic example.

    what is there for the common man to hide? he has been pillaged, plundered and all gold and silver is hidden in various secret locations.
    Snowden is only promoting digital product -Who is scared of al this surveillance? It is just a way of getting Fortune 1000 companies worldwide to increase spending on tech infrastructure.
    Mr. Snowden( Mr Slimeball Bond) meanwhile is enjoying some exclusive resorts in siberia to siwss and . Argentina etc of course incognito mode.
    Another example is y2k computer bug: Readers must first understand how a computer fucntions then they will realise software cannot crash critical technology infrastructures- this is another CIA/Silicon valley hoax.
    Cost:$200billion in spending worldwide to fix this'bug' called y2k. beneficiaries: Gates, ellison -owners of yatchs, jet planes, villas in japan etc. So these blaggards want real estates and for us ;protection' and secure virtual assets! wow!
