NSA Contractor, Harold Martin III, Charged With Stealing Classified Information

Whistleblower Edward Snowden’s former employer, Booz Allen Hamilton, is at the center of controversy following the announcement on Wednesday from the U.S. government that a breach of classified information occurred at the NSA.

The contractor, Harold Martin III, was arrested in August. The FBI arrested Martin who was found to have classified information in his home in Maryland.

Martin appeared in a closed court on August 29 and was charged with felony theft. Court records show that Martin remains in government custody. He was also charged with a misdemeanor for retaining classified information without authorization.

A court-ordered search of his home turned up thousands of documents as well as dozens of digital storage devices and computers.

The question of security clearances at the NSA and Booz Allen Hamilton have been raised following the second major breach of classified information.

Booz Allen Hamilton released a statement on Wednesday, stating, “When Booz Allen learned of the arrest of one of its employees by the FBI, we immediately reached out to the authorities to offer our total cooperation in their investigation, and we fired the employee. We continue to cooperate fully with the government on its investigation into this serious matter.”

Martin’s lawyers state that “these are mere allegations.” Martin is a former Navy veteran.

  1. I think what you published made a ton of sense.
    But, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added
    a post title to maybe grab folk’s attention? I mean NSA Contractor, Harold Martin III,
    Charged With Stealing Classified Information – Conservative Free Press is a
    little vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and see
    how they create article titles to get viewers to open the
    links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion,
    it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
