Snowden’s Great Escape – Aired: Jun/09/2015
This program tells the true story of Edward Snowden in Hong Kong in the days after he gave journalists his cache of documents about the NSA. The journalists had returned home, the revelations were shocking the world, but unknown until now, Edward Snowden himself was broke and alone – and the manhunt to bring him back to the United States was closing in on him. What is stunning is how Snowden, without contacts or money, was able to take advantage of elementary mistakes made by the U.S. government and escape Hong Kong and evade the manhunt. This documentary tells the story of how he did it.
