Edward Jay Epstein’s Wall Street Journal column “The fable of Edward Snowden” (accessible here via Google) blows the whistle on Snowden and his presentation as a whistleblower, both by himself and his media enablers. In the column Ed summarizes the findings in his forthcoming book How America Lost Its Secrets. Ed previews his findings in the video below with the Journal’s Mary Kissel.
Ed is in my opinion the foremost investigative journalist of our time. His long career has centered on issues of intelligence and counterintelligence. The late CIA head of counterintelligence James Jesus Angleton turned out to be something of a mentor to Ed as he navigated his path in that world. He was born to write this book and tell this enraging story.
