About the Lecture:  Edward Snowden is a polarizing figure in the world today, known by millions and the press as a champion of freedom and a whistle blower exposing extensive activities on the part of the US intelligence community to violate the civil rights of millions of Americans. This one of the many myths that surround this case. In fact, almost all the information in the public domain about Snowden is false. The vast majority of the “Snowden narrative” has been provided by Snowden himself and never verified by the media. Snowden has repeatedly lied about himself, his expertise, the NSA, and his motivations. This discussion exposes truth about the man, his background, and the duplicity of his claims. It is essential for professionals to know the truth to counter the false claims made by Snowden and his supporters and to set the record straight. 

About the Speaker: David Major is a retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent and President of the Center of Counterintelligence and Security Studies.
