Meet the NSA Leaker – Who Now Wants to Defect to China

Mon Jun 10, 2013 AT 12:09 PM EDT

Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former CIA tech now working for a private contractor, has exposed himself as the source behind the major intelligence leaks about the government’s surveillance programs last week, reports The Guardian. Snowden decided he would out himself as soon as he chose to publicly disclose the confidential documents pertaining to highly secretive data-surveillance programs, according to  The New York Times. “I have no intention of hiding who I am,” he told The Guardian, “because I know I have done nothing wrong.” But the newspaper said he was also braced for the United States government to “demonize” him. The Free Beacon reports his tentative plan to defect to China. Incidentally, The Washington Post reports Snowden’s name surfaced as top intelligence officials and Congress pushed back against journalists responsible for revealing the existence of sensitive surveillance programs and calling for an investigation into the leaks.
