After reaching out to our contacts at State, we were presented with an amazing opportunity: an interview with several active Diplomatic Security Special (DSS) Agents and Regional Security Officers (RSOs).
Edward Snowden’s name is synonymous with “hero” to some and “traitor” to others, depending on which side of the political aisle you find yourself.
It’s been said that September 11th, 2001 was our generation’s Pearl Harbor, our defining moment. But that bold and shameful attack against America in 2001 mostly killed civilians.
The DSS has more than 2,500 special agents, security engineering officers, security technical specialists and diplomatic couriers working and traveling worldwide.
