Almost everyone involved in developing Tor was (or is) funded by the US government
Tor was developed, built and financed by the US military-surveillance complex

The United States government cant simply run an anonymity system for everybody and then use it themselves only. Because then every time a connection came from it people would say,Oh, its another CIA agent. If those are the only people using the network.
Roger Dingledine, co-founder of the Tor Network, 2004
In early July, hacker Jacob Appelbaum and two other security experts published a blockbuster story in conjunction with the German press. They had obtained leaked top secret NSA documents and source code showing that the surveillance agency had targeted and potentially penetrated the Tor Network, a widely used privacy tool considered to be the holy grail of online anonymity.
Internet privacy activists and organizations reacted to the news with shock. For the past decade, they had been promoting Tor as a scrappy but extremely effective grassroots technology that can protect journalists, dissidents and whistleblowers from powerful government forces that want to track their every move online. It was supposed to be the best tool out there. Tors been an integral part of EFFs Surveillance Self-Defense privacy toolkit. Edward Snowden is apparently a big fan, and so is Glenn Greenwald, who says it allows people to surf without governments or secret services being able to monitor them.
