Snowden didn't raise concerns internally: NSA

Edward Snowden, the fugitive US intelligence agent, was granted political asylum by Russia after he flew in from Hong Kong in June 2013The National Security Agency was unable to find evidence that leaker Edward Snowden ever raised concerns internally about its sweeping surveillance programs, after an exhaustive search that included deleted emails, court documents showed. NSA Associate Director for Policy and Records David Sherman said that the agency had launched a “comprehensive” investigation after media reports were published about classified NSA spy programs based on information leaked by Snowden. As part of last year’s probe, the NSA collected and searched Snowden’s “sent, received and deleted email,” including that “obtained by restoring back-up tapes” Sherman said in a sworn declaration filed Friday. “The search did not identify any email written by Mr Snowden in which he contacted agency officials to raise concerns about NSA programs.”
