Snowden is a formerSenior Advisor to the NSA, a former Field Officer with the CIA, and a former lecturer for the United States Defense IntelligenceAgency.

Greenwald is a journalist known for his reporting on thewrongdoings of the National Security Agency (NSA).

Without positive proof that the information Snowden hadwas really newsworthy, Greenwald did not feel motivated to takethe steps necessary to install the PGP encryption.
