Comments about the CIA

In March 2007, the CIA reportedly stationed Edward Snowden with diplomatic cover in Geneva, Switzerland, where he was responsible for maintaining computer-network security.[1][2] Assigned to the U.S. Permanent Mission to the United Nations, a diplomatic mission representing U.S. interests before the UN and other international organizations, Snowden received a diplomatic passport and a four-bedroom apartment near Lake Geneva.[1] According to Greenwald, while there Snowden was "considered the top technical and cybersecurity expert" in that country and "was hand-picked by the CIA to support the president at the 2008 NATO summit in Romania".[3] Snowden described his CIA experience in Geneva as formative, stating that the CIA deliberately got a Swiss banker drunk and encouraged him to drive home. Snowden said that when the latter was arrested, a CIA operative offered to help in exchange for the banker becoming an informant.[4]

"This would mean that the CIA successfully bribed the Geneva police and judiciary"

Ueli Maurer, President of the Swiss Confederation for the year 2013, in June of that year publicly disputed Snowden's claims. "This would mean that the CIA successfully bribed the Geneva police and judiciary. With all due respect, I just can't imagine it," said Maurer.[5] In February 2009, Snowden resigned from the CIA.<ref name="from-loyal"> {{cite news |title=How Edward Snowden went from loyal NSA contractor to whistleblower |first=Luke |last=Harding |date=January 31, 2014 |publisher=The Guardian |url=https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/feb/01/edward-snowden-intell
