The Snowden leaks were accepted uncompromisingly when they came about, even through the majority of the "evidence" were redacted papers and power point slides. The US government didn't do the thing they always do in every other situation: deny everything. Hell, there is more evidence given by 9/11 truthers than what showed up in the beginning of the Snowden leaks (and really even the continual leaks).
We are to believe that a man who worked from home, in Hawaii, making $200k a year with a smoking hot girlfriend, just decided he was morally obligated to spill the beans and release all this classified information. Is it possible for one man to get all this information? Yes. Chelsey manning did it. But after that I have trouble believing the narrative.
Snowden speaks more elegantly than any other whistle blower. He is the model of perfection. He has had that nose piece missing from his glasses in every interview and god that's got to get annoying. Surely one of his guards can go to a store in Russia and get it fixed!
I'm sorry, the Snowden story doesn't add up. It's too perfect and every new agency has picked it up as the gospel truth without question.
Let me ask you this? What is the true implication of the mass spying? It's not that the government is spying on individuals; it's that they can release a piece of propaganda and test to see how many people believe it. It's the means by which a nation can measure their bullshit. In the wake of the Snowden leaks, there have been no revolutions; no riots; no people screaming in the streets. It's the ultimate proof that domestic spying works! You can spy on an entire nation; prevent any form of dissent and no one gives two shits.
Snowden is a limited hangout and I bet he still works for the NSA.
