  1. My unqualified guess is…neither. Big reduction in salary compared to his previous CIA work. Short-term, subcontracted IT guy. To me it spells “disgruntled employee with an ax to grind, trying to embarrass his former employers”. Revenge motive for not promoting him.

    • You make a good point. But what does he gain if this is for revenge?

      • He makes his former bosses look like evil Big Brother to the public, which has already worked to a degree. It’s a way of thumbing his nose at them like, “See? You shouldn’t have let me go.” He also gets to sell (possibly worthless) data to the Chinese, or whoever will trade asylum.
