NSA whistleblower and political refugee Edward Snowden, the most wanted man in the world. A fantastic interview with an equally incredible series of photos in this month's Wired.

Snowden held the flag in his hands and delicately unfolded it. You could see the gears turning as he weighed his year in exile against the love of country that motivated him in the first place.

Even more amazing than the cover photo? This, inside: Snowden with General Michael Hayden at a 2011 gala. Together, at last!
