The hits keep on coming in the increasingly bizarre Edward Snowden saga. Today’s revelation comes from the South China Morning Post, in which Snowden acknowledges that he took his job with NSA contractor Booz Allen Hamilton specifically to gather proof of the agency’s surveillance program. Said Snowden to the Post:  “My position with Booz Allen Hamilton granted me access to lists of machines all over the world the NSA hacked… That is why I accepted that position about three months ago.”

Snowden is believed to be headed to Ecuador, where, with the assistance of Wikileaks, he has requested political asylum.
