      Digital Blackwater: How the NSA Gives Private Contractors Control of the
      Surveillance State

      "And like I said before, it’s just about time we recognized that this is
      really Intelligence Inc. 70 percent of it is a for-profit operation. It’s a
      joint venture between government agencies and the private sector, and the
      private sector makes money off of it. They make big profits from this."

      AARON MATÉ: The U.S. government has begun the process of charging Edward
      Snowden with disclosing classified information after he leaked a trove of
      secret documents outlining the NSA’s surveillance programs. The FBI has
      already questioned Snowden’s relatives and associates. Snowden is a
      29-year-old computer technician who formerly worked for the CIA. He
      reportedly turned over thousands of documents to Glenn Greenwald of The
      Guardian newspaper, as well as to The Washington Post. Only a few have been
      published so far. His current whereabouts are unknown. Snowden flew from
      Hawaii to Hong Kong on May 20th. On Monday, he reportedly checked out of his
      Hong Kong hotel one day after The Guardian posted a video of him explaining
      his decision to leak the information.
