A powerful expose that calls into question Edward Snowden's hero status and uncovers how vulenerable our national security systems have become.
Edward Snowden. Hero, traitor, whistleblower, or spy? In the wake of his 2013 NSA leak, public opinion has been divided over the former IT analyst. In How America Lost Its Secrets, Edward Jay Epstein draws on his extensive journalistic experience and investigative acumen to investigate the Snowden scandal--why, and how, it happened, and what the implications will be. This is a crucial book for anyone hoping to understand national security in the digital age, and what Snowden's revelations mean for America (and Putin's Russia).
