Edward Snowden got a job with top-level clearance at National Security Agency contractor after he had been dismissed by a previous employer — the CIA — on suspicion of breaking into computers without authorized access.
Several unnamed sources told the New York Times this week that in 2009, Snowden was released from a job as a technician at the Central Intelligence Agency’s Geneva office after a supervisor reported suspicious behavior.
The CIA’s report on Snowden, apparently unseen by the NSA, noted changes in Snowden’s personality and work habits and cited apparent attempts he made to illegally access classified computer files, the Times said.
