The quotes from Edward Snowden in this article lead me to believe that Ed does not have the psychological maturity to be trusted with the type of information he had access to in his job with the NSA:
"You get exposed to a little bit of evil, a little bit of rule-breaking, a little bit of dishonesty, a little bit of deceptiveness, a little bit of disservice to the public interest, and you can brush it off, you can come to justify it,"
and his reaction after reading in March 2013 about national intelligence chief James Clapper telling a Senate committee that the NSA does "not wittingly" collect information on millions of Americans?
"I think I was reading it in the paper the next day, talking to coworkers, saying, can you believe this...?"
A person who decides to spend paid work hours leaking information meant to not be made public SHOULD NOT be given the chance to work in a job at the NSA or any other place of employment where info is to be kept Confidential.
Q: Doesn't the NSA perform psychological tests of any sort on its job candidates to determine whether they have negative reactionary behavioral characteristics? If not, maybe it is High Time for the NSA to begin starting now.

Eddie... kiddo, you are NOT supposed to misbehave on the job just because someone says or does something that doesn't sit well with you. It is time for you to grow up right now, Eddie. Behave yourself. Behave yourself, or else somebody's gonna MAKE you behave.
