The father of National Security Agency leaker Edward J. Snowden arrived Thursday in Moscow hoping to meet his son, who is a fugitive from a federal indictment and has been granted temporary asylum in Russia.
As he prepares to visit his son in Russia, Lon Snowden on Sunday blasted President Obama and congressional leaders for failing to take real action to curb federal mass surveillance and data-collection efforts.
Lon Snowden’s anguish over his son, Edward Snowden, is turning into something else he didn’t expect: disillusion with a government he once proudly served. “I’m an American citizen who has lost faith in many of the leaders on both sides of the political aisle,” Mr. Snowden said during an interview with The Washington Times.
The father of suspected National Security Agency leaker Edward J. Snowden is seeking a deal with the Justice Department that would allow his son to remain free prior to a trial in exchange for his surrender to face espionage charges.
I love my son,” Lon Snowden told reporters in remarks broadcast by Russian TV.
