Snowden should 'man up', face trial in US: Kerry

A giant screen shows fugitive US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden (top) delivering a speech, on May 16, 2014 in the northern German city of HamburgUS Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday lashed out at fugitive spy Edward Snowden urging him to “man-up” and do his patriotic duty by returning to face trial for leaking intelligence secrets. Kerry’s comments came only hours after Snowden revealed that he was not just a low-level contractor working for the CIA, as the White House has consistently portrayed him. “I was trained as a spy in sort of the traditional sense of the word in that I lived and worked undercover overseas — pretending to work in a job that I’m not — and even being assigned a name that was not mine,” he told NBC. In his first interview in US media, Snowden said he had worked covertly as “a technical expert” for the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency, and as a trainer for the Defense Intelligence Agency.
