Legitimate question: Is Edward Snowden a double agent? That would be a double agent who only "went double" to protect his primary loyalty, to the Chinese?
We need this answer, but in the meanwhile, let us NOT forget that the entire machinery of our huge Government is now organized against Snowden for one purpose, and one purpose only:
to protect the intrusive nature of big government itself against individual Liberty
It's tough, staying on task to use the information Snowden gave all of us, at considerable risk to his life (and very little to ours, contravening what the Bigs are trying to tell us). But stay on task we must, and we must not get buried under this avalanche of disinformation aimed only at putting the sheeple back in their sheep-pen so more wool can be sheared, or so the sheeple can be turned into mutton chops.
So, in the meanwhile, continue to view any and all of Snowden's attackers as foes of Liberty, and continue your tactic of whenever a Big Government wallah tells you or anyone else that NSA surveillance has saved our bacon, many times, yell back at the wallah, "Details, please". When no details are forthcoming, or the details are lied about as General Clapper did before Congress and the Nation, the very least you should do is run up the big red Bullshit Flag on your signal halyard.
