How America Lost Its Secrets
- Edward Snowden, the Man and the Theft
- By: Edward Jay Epstein
- Narrated by: Michael Bybee
- Length: 11 hrs and 59 mins
After details of American government surveillance were published in 2013, Edward Snowden, formerly a subcontracted IT analyst for the NSA, became the center of an international controversy: Was he a hero, traitor, whistle-blower, spy? Was his theft legitimized by the nature of the information he exposed? When is it necessary for governmental transparency to give way to subterfuge? Edward Jay Epstein brings a lifetime of journalistic and investigative acumen to bear on these and other questions.
