Submission + - LA Times: Snowden Had 3 Helpers Inside NSA (latimes.com)

retroworks writes: Three people at the National Security Agency have been implicated in Edward Snowden's efforts to copy classified material, including a civilian employee who resigned last month after acknowledging he allowed Snowden to use his computer ID, according to an NSA memo sent to Congress. The other two were an active-duty member of the military and a civilian contractor. The memo does not describe their conduct, but says they were barred from the NSA and its systems in August.

Not much detail disclosed in the article, but the one who is talking seems to have just loaned Snowden his ID and password without really knowing why Snowden wanted it.Prompts reasking of the question on /. last week... "How many other NSA contractors / staff / moles / spies have been doing the same thing, without Snowden's intention to disclose their behavior?" http://slashdot.org/comments.p...
