Manufactured Hero Edward Snowden – The NSA Whistleblower Exposed as Career NSA, CIA, Special Forces Trained Agent

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Manufactured Hero Edward Snowden: What are YOU Willing to Risk for Your New FACEBOOK Hero?

UPDATE:  Manufactured Hero Edward Snowden: Caught in a Lie or Cover Story to Protect his Girlfriend’s Privacy? June 10

UPDATE:  Manufactured Hero Edward Snowden: Take to the Streets on July 4th in Washington D.C.?

UPDATE: So what exactly did the hero tell us?

1998

.

.

Oh yeah, he didn’t tell us jack shit that we didn’t already know. Yeah, he’s a hero.

UPDATE: Booz Allen Hamilton huh? Do you know who owns them, who our hero really works for? The Carlyle Group.

Booz Allen Hamilton, like its rival SAIC, is involved in virtually every aspect of the modern intelligence enterprise, from advising top officials on how to integrate the 16 agencies within the Intelligence Community (IC), to detailed analysis of signals intelligence, imagery and other critical collections technologies…

Booz itself it now owned by the Carlyle Group, one of the nation’s most politically-connected private equity funds.

So this guy had no high school diploma, worked for intelligence his entire professional life, his boss was the Carlyle Group and he was getting paid more than a U.S. senator… and he decided to be a whistle-blower around the same time all this other stuff was coming out and just after Astroturf Adam announced his big “Final Revolution of America” psyop?

hmmm…..

UPDATE: He was a Ron Paul supporter in 2012   (wasn’t RP outed as a phony as well?)

UPDATE: Kenny from Kenny’s Sideshow uploaded the video of Glenn’s interview with our new hero. My biggest gripe with most of these guys has been they are pretty bad actors. This guy however seems pretty good. Notice how he keeps talking about coming from a position of comfort and wealth and that it’s difficult for people to give that up to stand up and do what’s right. He claims that it’s his unusual access to a comprehensive view of the workings of the intelligence complex that gave him the ability to see what was really going on. Well, sitting way out here on the outside, people like myself and many others (like Kenny for one) have been able to see this fascist shift developing for over a decade. Hell, William Cooper saw it long before that.

“Even if you’re not doing anything wrong, you’re being watched and recorded … you don’t have to have done anything wrong, you simply have to eventually fall under suspicion from somebody — even by a wrong calland then they can use the system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you’ve ever made.”

He took off on May 20th huh? Why does that seem important?

Obviously, I stand by my original theory on all of this… it’s part of an elaborate scheme by the intelligence complex themselves to create unrest or at least the narrative of unrest prior to the summer of discontent in America. The “hero” whistle-blower is actually a career NSA agent, former CIA spook who trained to be Special Forces (unconventional warfare)

He is breathlessly revered by the Guardian as the next best thing to happen to democracy since Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning yet what he “leaked” is well known to anyone paying attention over the past few years.

The paper describes him as having a bumper sticker on his laptop that reads “I support Online Rights: Electronic Frontier Foundation” as well as having a copy of Angler, the biography of former vice-president Dick Cheney sitting on his hotel bed. Oh, the duality of the guy. Does anyone wonder how he was working at the NSA and the CIA for a company like Booz Allen Hamilton with an Electronic Frontier Foundation bumper sticker on his laptop?

Glenn Greenwald’s secret whistle-blower has exposed himself for reasons yet unknown. Well, I’ll tell you one of the reasons, they got sick of Greenwald doing all those interviews, now they got “their guy” front and center to take the spotlight off Glenn.

His name is Edward Snowden and by his own account he is a very high-paid employee of NSA contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. He’s been with them for at least 4 years working at the NSA facility in Hawaii.

According to a Guardian article which revealed his name, the guy is now hiding out in Hong Kong, which he readily offers up himself, in a “nice” hotel, sitting in his room with some kind of blanket hood over his head and laptop.

He claims he doesn’t want to live in a world like this… but it didn’t seem to bother him for 4 years while he was raking in $200,000 a year living like a king in Hawaii with his girlfriend.

The Guardian story is full of praise of this guy and they make sure to tell you to consider him a hero. Here’s our new hero’s background:

“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. His understanding of the internet and his talent for computer programming enabled him to rise fairly quickly for someone who lacked even a high school diploma.

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” Guardian

Aside from the obvious sticky sweet nature of the Guardian article and the ham-handed props they adorned his hotel room with, he does give a few clues as to both his where-abouts and his mission:

“On May 20, he boarded a flight to Hong Kong, where he has remained ever since.”

“It is a plush hotel and, what with eating meals in his room too, he has run up big bills.”

“”We have got a CIA station just up the road – the consulate here in Hong Kong – and I am sure they are going to be busy for the next week. And that is a concern I will live with for the rest of my life, however long that happens to be.””  Guardian

So he’s in a plush hotel right up the road from the CIA station in Hong Kong “running up bills” on his credit card. That shouldn’t take the CIA or the NSA or ANYONE more than a few minutes with Google to figure out where he is.

Notice something else… MAY 20th

How does that factor into what I wrote the other day?

  1. I was uploading this video and saw your article and included it in the description. My first impression of the guy was essentially the same as yours, something is not right here.

    “PRISM Whistleblower Edward Snowden – Manufactured Hero?”

    • You cannot enlist in the US Army w/o a high school diploma. They won’t even accept a GED anymore. My son had to do national Guard.

    • 100% shill, the little he has exposed has been in the public domain for almost a decade. No other whistle blower has has this much attention or media coverage. Controlled opposition !

    • The number of CIA and NSA whistleblowers is what caught my attention. Normally, the feds would be serving out prison sentences for leaking classified information but it would never get that far because these agencies would have known before they did that they were going to try and leak classified info. This looks like a smoke and mirrors project where the feds want our attention on the issue of domestic surveillance instead of something else more important to them. The question would be “What is more important to be kept secret?”

  2. You’re fucking brilliant.

    I love your work. Keep it up.

  3. I’m so glad Obama told bloggers to “keep pushing”

    in his speech to the Netroots 🙂

  4. We’ll see how this plays out. IF you are right I ‘ll send a contribution. I think this guy is not the part of a grand publicity operation.

  5. I guess they just can’t find this guy in Hong Kong. Must be a big place.

  6. I think you may be off base on this one. I think this guy is concerned with the police state Obama has created. The reason he could be giving interviews and stating his whereabouts is so that there are more journalists around and thus more witnesses making it harder for him to be assassinated.

  7. Quite possibly — no, make that most definitely — the dumbest diatribe I have ever encountered online!

    Is Scotty an imbecile?

    T’would seem so…

    Cheers,

    JQP

    • Yeah, I would imagine you would say that. You hang out at Sign of the Times don’t you? That website is promoting the Guardian article uncritically, in fact, they posted the full article.

      That site also praised Alex Jones’ diatribe on the BBC

      “American “shock jock” Alex Jones joined Times columnist David Aaronovitch to discuss it – and ended up disrupting the show in spectacular fashion.”

      “Conspiracy theorist-in-chief Alex Jones ‘owns’ BBC Sunday Politics show”

      Who’s the imbecile?

      • FWIW, no, I do not “hang out” at SOTT — my only input there consisted of a series 911 related posts which contested the views set forth by a gentleman who had endorsed the government’s fairy tale explanations vis-a-vis that event.

        I do, on occasion, hang out here — http://ericpetersautos.com/2012/05/07/deathstar-america-and-the-endgame-of-empire/

        And here — http://jfkcountercoup2.blogspot.com/2012/11/postponed-in-full.html

        I should not have referred to you as an imbecile, it was crass of me — a heat of the moment rejoinder — and I apologize for having done so.

        That being said, I do take extreme umbrage with your characterizations of both Edward Snowden and Glenn Greenwald,

        Cheers,

        JQP

        • I have a great deal of respect for Glenn Greenwald. He has put himself in a bad place. I do not think for one MINUTE that he is willingly part of any deception. That said, he refuses to look seriously at 9/11 and other FF events in our recent history. By the way, I read your Deathstar America article… I liked it. In fact, I have seen many of your comments across the internet since yesterday and for the most part I appreciate your efforts.

          thank you for your apology. accepted.

          I don’t exactly know what this Snowden thing is all about, I just have a natural reaction when “heroes” are manufactured for us over and over again only later to find out, they are somehow less than the original billing. Your emotional reaction to my hypothesis is understood.

        • http://ericpetersautos.com/2012/05/07/deathstar-america-and-the-endgame-of-empire/

          Very interesting. It was only a couple of days ago someone mentioned to me the weapons carried on the international space station. I asked “What weapons? There are no weapons on the space station, how and why would there be weapons there?” They laughed at me and asked. “How and why would there not?”

  8. Yep. his phony comes along just in time to remove the IRS scandal off the front pages.

  9. First, he wasn’t exposed as a career NSA, CIA op, that was given freely up front. Second, what possible reason for this if this guy is not for real? ” it’s part of an elaborate scheme by the intelligence complex themselves to create unrest or at least the narrative of unrest prior to the summer of discontent in America” – that makes no sense at all. How does anyone benefit by this? Maybe I’m missing something. Please explain who benefits by ‘creating unrest’ prior to the summer of discontent in America. And summer of discontent? What’s that?

    • “Summer of discontent”

      not so sly reference on my part to Richard III

      “Now is the winter of our discontent / Made glorious summer by this sun [or son] of York,”

      Richard is lamenting that the monstrous warriors have no place in a time of peace, and thus … he must make efforts to fix that.

      Literally “winter of discontent” means the end of the period of sorrows and war (Richard is a warrior and only lives for war)… so “summer of discontent” means…. ?

      As to your other question…

      “How does anyone benefit from this?”

      How did the “B Team” benefit from fabricating reasons to continue the Cold War? How did the Pentagon benefit from creating false intel supporting WMDs in Iraq?

      Remember, this is the intelligence industrial complex. Their bread and butter comes from a country that is supposed to be at war with angry, hidden people who take up arms against the country itself… this “leak” supposedly pisses off those people… and the story will be that they reacted.

      Perhaps the story will be they reacted on July 4th.

      Why was Adam Kokesh pushing people to go to D.C. with guns on July 4th? What good would that have done? Why is Edward talking about another march on D.C. on July 4th? Is there a connection?

      Will July 4th start off our Summer of Discontent”?

      that’s what I mean by all of that.

      • “How does anyone benefit from this?”

        Just ask Israel. They’re the experts at reaping the rewards from covert military operations. Perhaps they’ll also benefit from Snowden’s game plan. http://ow.ly/xTAeu

        More proof of Snowden’s complicity with government. According to this video, Snowden uncovered evidence that the chemtrail agenda is being undertaken in an effort to combat climate change and the threat to agriculture. http://ow.ly/xTRBf

        First of all, you would think that a person with Snowden’s intellect, and intel, would know that global warming and climate change are a ruse created to control and fleece the public.

        Secondly, it’s laughable that anyone would believe that a government that sanctions genetically engineered food, cloned farm animals and crops doused in toxic chemicals and grown in sewer sludge, would suddenly show benevolence towards agriculture and humanity.

        What’s just as troubling is the number of people who are lapping this hogwash up. To that effect, the power brokers have had some success in dividing the truth movement. The good news is that with all the genuine information being disclosed on chemtrail activity, they’ve had to go into damage control to achieve it.

        Great blog…keep it up!

  10. Interesting some of the phraz-ology he uses. And his last assessment about “tyranny” running amok. We can already see the meme of the story being framed between is he a hero or is he a traitor….NOT! is he legit?? Thanks Scott

  11. Here’s another May event:

    May 21, 2013 – Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) railed against his colleagues in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday for voting to arm elements of the Syrian opposition, saying they chose to fund “the allies of al-Qaeda.”

    Source: Rand Paul: My Fellow Senators Voted to Arm Al-Qaeda – http://news.antiwar.com/2013/05/21/rand-paul-my-fellow-senators-voted-to-arm-al-qaeda/

  12. Intentional smokescreen drama or not the issues deserve more questions and probing. I’m interested in exactly how all this personal data is scrutinized, stored, accessed , and used for whatever reason? Psychological warfare and control of lives, manipulation? Instead of just judging the scandal as a political chess move, what is underneath? For the average drone person there is not a big concern other than a total invasion of privacy, but for others in power, politics, thinkers, or anyone under and over the radar all is available for software programs and sad people to explore. I thought recently by law mobile phone companies were required to store all data for govt purposes? Straying into the other issue of staged diversions as a means to diffuse other more dangerous issues, is there the argument that controlling the temperature of political fire is quite important? What really is fundamental and interesting is how all digital data is processed and used other than to flag potentially harmful persons (for whatever reason) and develop a perspective on it. Continuing to create sensationalism or lack of thorough investigation of the issues Snowdon is addressing is important! Deeper and more rational please.

  13. THANK YOU! i knew from the time i saw the interview, this guy is lying through his teeth! he’s actually a horrible actor, as any actor will tell you. he can’t even maintain eye contact with greenwald during the interview; his eyes are constantly shifting–a blatant sign of lying. that, or he’s reading from a teleprompter.
    his answers are memorized and rehearsed, and he’s obviously NOT in fear for his life.

    tell me this: if he lived in hawaii, why doesn’t he have a TAN? and how did someone so dull, pasty, & boring get a hot acrobatic chick girlfriend? FAKE!

Arab spring? how about a U.S. spring. you know, to get you all off-focus from the fact that Monsanto is still poisoning you and your kids.
    i’ve said this from the beginning about so-called “whistle-blower” eric snowden: I DON’T BUY IT. he’s a government-plant.
    i mean, come ON. google the guy and you come up with multiple people with the name, including a famous actor and athlete: deliberate. oh, and now half-naked pictures of his super-hot acrobat (with abs of steel and biceps to match) girlfriend have surfaced, along with her blog. i thought she was in danger? oh, yeah…-her- name is lindsay mills. try googling that. i’m sure there are a million in the U.S., though perhaps fewer in waikiki, hawaii. people, this is nothing but more fake information to get men all excited, distracted, and blindly rallying behind this fake hero.a newfangled patsy. don’t swallow everything the MSM force-feeds you in repetitive, contrived, and obviously planted stories. this guy is very obviously in no danger. why? because he’s still doing his job, & the government is merely playing the role of being angry about it. it’s a ruse, and as usual, the government is controlling the mainstream media.

          • Hi Patty…

            Thanks for the discretion but in fact, I know of Bill Warner and his hatred of me and as for the Propublica article, that’s me. Sasha interviewed me several times about the trouble I was having after I became disabled and a photographer came over to my little rental house and took some pics. They were very nice. The Propublic article actually helped change policy at the Department of Education in terms of making it easier for people who become disabled after they get out of school to get deferments on their payments rather than having them taken from their tiny disability checks. It was a couple years ago, but I put it up on my website. It’s here somewhere (maybe under personal) As too Bill Warner, he and I had a little run in a while ago (leading up to the RNC here in Tampa) and he was trying to make me (or anyone else who happened to walk by) into the head of Black-Blok and a terrorist determined to blow up the Convention Center. Well, nothing happened, in fact the Tampa PD sat down with protesters (the few who were here) and they calmly hashed out differences. No burning cops cars, no looting, no end of world stuff which Bill had said he had inside information that it was going to happen. Nothing. I had been telling people to avoid the protest down here since Romney was just a fall-guy for Obama and the republicans weren’t our problem at the time, somehow that made me a terrorist. anyway, thanks for looking out for me, but I know the stuff is out there and I don’t mind it. Not a flattering picture of me, but it’s me, flatting or not.

            • Actually, the picture’s really not bad – better than pictures I end up with. Cute dog.

              Noticed this at the end of the Bill Warner’s article:

              “Scott Creighton at ‘American Everyman’ appears to be about 41, he failed to leave a phone number or home address on his silly little “hate the world website”, no problem I will post all his information in my next post about the Occupy Back Bloc head cheerleader Scott Creighton. Hey Scott you are reporting those ‘donations’ to the IRS aren’t you?”

              I didn’t realize you hated the world. I guess I better run away from your site now. I can’t be reading filth from any of those bad world haters.

              • that’s funny cus I didn’t realize I was the head cheerleader for anything or anyone. Is there a little outfit for that? “Rah Rah Rhe, destabilize the protest!”?

  14. I dont watch TV and actually im living in Italy…but from what I scour or see, I have not heard any mention or interviews of his parents or siblings…or high school pals or anyone who knew him?????? anyone??

  15. THANK YOU! i knew from the time i saw the interview, this guy is lying through his teeth! he’s actually a horrible actor, as any actor will tell you. he can’t even maintain eye contact with greenwald during the interview; his eyes are constantly shifting–a blatant sign of lying. that, or he’s reading from a teleprompter.

    again, this is nothing but more disinformation designed to rally testosterone-charged fightin’ men to the “cause” of this fake hero, while distracting the masses from a myriad of real social issues (Bradley Manning’s trial for his -real- heroism began the same week this “snowden” began with his verizon leak, stealing headlines before revealing himself 4 days later. and oh, yeah, pay no attention to the WAR CRIMES that are at the center of the Bradley Manning trial…you know, the U.S. military firing on Reuters reporters and bombing Afghan civilians, women, and children.)

    this guy’s a LIAR, and his pants are on FIRE.
    welcome to my world. think outside the Matrix.

    • wow, just wow…
      You hit the nail on the head. Thank you for this great post.
      Your observation on how the whole thing coincides with Manning’s trial has struck me most.

  16. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/09/edward-snowden-nsa-whistleblower-su

    this guy so clearly has an agenda. how many other whistle blowers have pretty much called for mutiny and says his/her greatest fear is that the public will “do nothing,” while he’s chilling in Hong Kong?
    he’s an actor, and a bad one. this is a “false flag” whistle blower planted by the government. really. all his fear-mongering, & diverting blame from the president by saying this was all in place before his term & will continue afterwards, even going so far as to say he could be ordered to do the same thing -to- the president, calling on congress to be our saving grace? congress needs to get fired because our food, water, environment, oceans, towns, animals, bees, butterflies, & ecosystem have all been decimated by Monsanto, while the government has been complicit.
    no. this guy is a fake, his life is not in danger, & he was obviously reciting lines he’d rehearsed a thousand times. he sure is cool for someone who believes his family is in danger for the rest of his life.
    he’s a phony. whistle blowers just blow the whistle because they want stuff in the public domain; they don’t lay out plans of action for the country.
    i call BS. the gov’t is again controlling the media and feeding them stories to dominate the news.
    don’t forget, Bradley Manning’s trial started last week when these supposed leaks surfaced as well.
    this guy couldn’t even maintain eye contact with his interviewer. why is that? he’s lying.
    why won’t the MSM talk about Monsanto’s long list of bioterrorist acts around the globe? this is just BS.
    these “revelations” are nothing new. notice how he goes into detail about his capabilities & resorts to fear mongering. it’s just not organic. it’s very contrived and the “live interview” was obviously rehearsed. his responses were from a script, and it was quite obvious.
    our food supply is poisoned. and the US gov’t is changing the subject, diverting attention from the trial of Bradley Manning & continuing the MSM blackout on Monsanto and their infiltration of the federal government.

    • why does he put on a hood to prevent cameras from recording his passwords when he said himself he could send a bug to a machine and get passwords?

      why would he put pillows by his door to prevent eavesdropping when he said himself he can wire tap any phone he wants? if he can do something that complex, many others can do things far more complex. he said himself that they can do things we can’t imagine…and his defense is a hood and pillows.

      lame!!

  17. his dull, boring, pasty guy who speaks in a monotone reminiscent of seth rogan and makes virtually no facial expressions even when talking about “the rest of his life, however long that may be…” has a hot acrobat girlfriend?

    can this story GET any more manufactured? hey, look over here, sheeple! hot girl on pole!! why did she date this boring, pasty, monotone dude? forget about why. hot acrobat girl on pole!

  18. The Guardian, Glen Greenwald and what have you all have ties with British Secret Service- Maybe it is a coordinated plan by France (who benefits) and the UK to leak this out and put pressure on Obama to OK the attack on Syria- Anybody who defies the cabal and strays off the plan is destroyed much as they are doin with Obama administration- It is risky- Not that I am defending in any way the Obama administration, the police state enforcers- the world wide police state enforcers- it is just that we need to assess also the threat of attacking Syria and the possibility of a world war- really- Crazy World is Boiling all over

  19. All this time, I resisted the temptation to try to find a photo of ScottCreighton… I figured I’d keep this rare gem on the Internet purely cerebral, and not fuzz my perception up with any visuals… Which came to an abrupt end with one click (thanks a lot Patty ;-))

    Yeah, it’s obviously not the best photo… And it did not really match my imaginary Scott, which was loosely based on the photo of your “young and stylish” dad you had shared… I am pleased to report that my Scott and the real Scott are now living peacefully together…. Welcome to the right side of my brain….

    • Don’t know how I managed to squeeze this post here… It was meant as a reply to Patty.

    • Ok. I see I have to fix this image thingy…

      did you not see the pic of me and Dad in the article I wrote about his passing?

      • I had not realized that was you and your dad… Duh! Because it seems so obvious now that you point it out… My apologies.

        On a side note… I am not generally too shy to visit the bottom of the piles of garbage on the internet… This Warner guy seems to be a real piece of work.. A true sewer feeder… PI my ass… We call those Professional Blackmailers…

    • Here is a water color of Scott when he was about 20….. sorry about the quality… the water color actually has more contrast and color.
      I am not very clever with this technical stuff… 🙂

      (Scott is going to insert the picture for me)

      [alright, fine… here is the picture. It’s too big for the comment section. I never looked like this by the way]

      • uuuuhhhh… no… I’m not. That pic is just too um, how do I put this?.. Flock of Seagulls? uuuhhhh…. no. no. not going to happen.

        [alright fine, goddamn it. don’t be so pushy… (I thought you would be more pushy)]

        • What? I looked up that ‘flock of whatever’ and you do not look like them . no way!
          Your hair was long on top and short otherwise and you wore it combed back…. it was the style ‘then’…… you turned toward the camera and I snapped it. Your hair fell across your face.
          It’s a great picture… you were an ‘outstanding’ serious student of the ‘theater’ and this picture seemed to fit perfectly….. I love that picture! My attempt at the water color does not do it justice… but I don’t have the original picture anymore.
          You going to hurt my feelings on national net? sniffle, sniffle…

        • He he… I just posted my pushy reply.. I had to think about it….H e he

      • What? You never looked like that? What?
        You still look like this in a little different version…..

        • a little different version? yeah, that version, on the skids, 20 years older with no healthcare for all of it. yeah, “a little different” works…

  20. History of US government use of comics, including anime and manga, for propaganda.

  21. sorry, please delete second posting of link

  22. Snowden has been described as an accomplished player of a video game called “Tekken,” a fight game. In Language of Empire, I wrote about the use made of video-games by the military to desensitize adolescent males to violence and rehearse them in the mentality of the killers they will be trained to become.The US, of course, is not alone in using video games in this way. A recent piece in the Guardian describes the popularity of video-games among the world’s militaries.

    That same piece describes the extent of US research into this new frontier of mind-control and brainswashing:

    “By the late 1990s,” says Nick Turse, an American journalist, historian and author of The Complex: How the Military Invades Our Everyday Lives, “the [US] army was pouring tens of millions of dollars into a centre at the University of Southern California – the Institute of Creative Technologies – specifically to build partnerships with the gaming industry and Hollywood.”

    It’s a toxic relationship in Turse’s opinion, since gaming leads to a reliance on remote-controlled warfare, and this in turn makes combat more palatable.”

    Please note that by the late 1990s, the center of the US military’s partnership with Hollywood and the Gaming industry was Southern California. Please note that Ryuhana was established in 2012, next to the NSA in Fort Meade. Please note that after it folded up there in 2004, it moved to California and hasn’t been heard of since.

  23. I think China will come into play. A little too obvious that Obama met with the Chinese president just when the Snowden story broke, and Snowden ends up in…..Hong Kong, which is China.
    Pretty obvious if you’re looking for to see the motivation behind the headlines!

    • cheney came out yesterday saying that Snowden has done the most damage of any whistleblower in our history (with his amateurish cheesy slides telling us nothing new) and that he thinks China is somehow behind it.

      so yeah…. China bashing is part of all of this. It’ll probably turn out they have some pics of him posing next to some Chinese military guy and Glenn will be arrested and tried as a traitor or some crap like that. Nice set-up when you think about it.

  24. […] and why should you care? He is being hailed as a hero by some, a traitor by others, and even an actor of sorts. Apart from establishing his credibility, there is really no good reason to form an […]

  25. its like osama. just can’t seem to catch up with him or catch him. this guy sure moves around a lot very easily. there is only one way he could do this. he has help from the very people who say they want to catch him. this whole thing was fishy from the start. not to mention that piece of work that was supposedly his girl friend who now has moved out of hawaii and dropped out of sight. hmmm

  26. Republicou isso em O LADO ESCURO DA LUAe comentado:
    Add your thoughts here… (optional)

  27. Snowden is just a distraction used by the capitalists ruling class to scare the American people similiar to the falsehood of the Reagan regime of the Soviet menace. Everything in America is manufactured for the pleasure of the free-market.

    • Snowden is not just a distraction to scare. He’s also hope, to inspire (sort of). He’s a model for independent thought (sort of). He’s a reminder that your government is aware of all and taking care of all (sort of). He’s also a reminder that right and wrong, good and bad, patriotic and treasonous are all arbitrary, subject to instantaneous change, and ultimately decided by someone else, so beware and don’t put yourself into an awkward position with your rulers.
