Snowden: "I Was Trained As A Spy"

NBC NEWS: Edward Snowden, in an exclusive interview with "Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams, is fighting back against critics who dismissed him as a low-level hacker β€” saying he was β€œtrained as a spy” and offered technical expertise to high levels of government.

β€œI was trained as a spy in sort of the traditional sense of the word, in that I lived and worked undercover overseas β€” pretending to work in a job that I’m not β€” and even being assigned a name that was not mine,” Snowden said in the interview.
