Years before he became the world’s most notorious leaker, Edward Snowden ranted online about how he hated people who spill secrets so much that he wanted to blast them in the private parts, it was revealed yesterday.

In 2009, the tech geek declared on a Web forum that groups such as WikiLeaks and The New York Times, which publish sensitive government information, “should be shot in the balls.”

Using the username TheTrueHOOHA, Snowden launched his attack on leakers on a tech-news Web site called Ars Technica, according to The Washington Post.

“Are they TRYING to start a war? Jesus christ,” he wrote. “You don’t put that s–t in the NEWSPAPER . . . That s–t is classified for a reason.’ ”

Snowden also talked about firearms, saying he owned a Walther P22, the same gun used by fictional superspy James Bond — and he “love[d] it to death.”
