Booz Allen Says It's Fired Snowden After NSA Leak

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Government contractor Booz Allen Hamilton says it's fired Edward Snowden, the employee who leaked details of a secret National Security Agency surveillance program.
    
The McLean, Va.-based firm says in a statement that it fired Snowden "for violations of the firm's code of ethics and firm policy." It said he had earned a salary of $122,000 a year.
    
Snowden had identified himself as the person who leaked top-secret information. He fled to Hong Kong in hopes of escaping criminal charges.
