Unless I missed it there is nothing in this article that indicates what information the US is after on these chinese servers.
When it is clear the info was critical to national security then I will have no problem doing an about face on this guy. But it is possible this is consistent with Snowden's original charge the government is involved in spying on its own citizens.
If this guy just wanted to sell secrets to China he could have done that.
And we’d have never known.
How many others have done that?
This guy didn’t have to tell ANYONE what he’d done or what NSA was doing. Most spies don’t call the MSM to explain themselves. They just disappear with the data never to be seen again.
