Surely this can't happen. The UK has an extradition treaty with the US. We're closest allies for crying out loud.
The moment Snowden landed at Glasgow, he'd be arrested by Scottish Police and the process would begin. Mind you, doing that would guarantee he couldn't face the death penalty though - the UK won't extradite people facing that.

Did I miss something.... NSA you mean.
In 2003, he enlisted in the US army and began a training program to join the Special Forces.
After that, he got his first job in an NSA facility, working as a security guard for one of the agency's covert facilities at the University of Maryland. From there, he went to the CIA, where he worked on IT security.
By 2007, the CIA stationed him with diplomatic cover in Geneva, Switzerland. His responsibility for maintaining computer network security meant he had clearance to access a wide array of classified documents.

He left the CIA in 2009 in order to take his first job working for a private contractor that assigned him to a functioning NSA facility, stationed on a military base in Japan.
