Mapping Booz Allen’s ties to the intelligence community

Now that Edward Snowden has come forward as the informant for the Guardian’s series of stories on the National Security Agency, his former employer, Booz Allen Hamilton, is on the hot seat.

The Guardian reported that Snowden had worked at the NSA for the last four years as an employee of outside contractors.

Booz Allen issued a statement Sunday saying Snowden, 29, had been an employee for less than three months.

“News reports that this individual has claimed to have leaked classified information are shocking, and if accurate, this action represents a grave violation of the code of conduct and core values of our firm,” the statement said. “We will work closely with our clients and authorities in their investigation of this matter.”

Booz Allen has provided consulting services to the federal government since 1940, working with the NSA for more than 30 years. Three-fourths of its employees hold government security clearances.

According to its most recent annual report, services to intelligence agencies accounted for 23 percent of its business in 2013, bringing in $1.3 billion.

Company ties to the intelligence community are many.

The Muckety map above shows people with connections to both intelligence agencies and Booz Allen or its majority stockholder, Carlyle Group. Snowden appears at the center.

Closer to the intelligence community section of the map is National Intelligence Director James R. Clapper, who was executive director of military intelligence programs for Booz Allen.

Current company execs with government credentials include Vice Chairman John Michael McConnell, NSA director under George W. Bush; and SVP Joan Dempsey, former deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
