Snowden gets Russian citizenship
« on: September 27, 2022, 05:59:35 PM »
Putin has granted Edward Snowden Russian citizenship. It would be interesting to now just what Snowden if anything has told the Russians?

Did Snowden have a high enough security clearance to know anything ground breaking or was he just a tech guy who might have know a few minor secrets but nothing that would have allowed the Russians unrestricted access to the most secure areas of the American systems?

That means I'm a subject matter expert on all things Russia, Ukraine and UK.

Whatever he knew, he already revealed long sgo.
So i dont see the citizenship as anything surprosing.
More surprising that it took so long?
