Edward Snowden: Hacked or hit piece?

Edward Snowden: Hacked or hit piece?

The Sunday Times newspaper in Britain is reporting that Russia and China have hacked Edward Snowden and accessed encrypted classified documents that the notorious whistleblower gathered during his time as an NSA contractor. According to the Times, the hack could put British and American spies and intelligence agents at risk.

[Snowden] ended up in Russia after leaving Hong Kong for Latin America, and although he said in 2013 that the encrypted files remained secure, Britain believes both Russia and China have cracked documents which contain details that could allow British and American spies to be identified, the Times report said, citing officials.

But, not everyone is buying into the Sunday Times' story. Journalists Glenn Greenwald and Ryan Gallagher have both covered the Snowden story extensively from the beginning, and they believe the Times story is false.
