The kid was willing to work with these Chinese government, which is terrible, because he wanted to expose something he disagrees with but isn't brave enough to do it with the most serious consequences.

Anyone who sees what's been done to Bradley Manning and wants to avoid experiencing that themselves is not cowardly, they're just sane.  Cowardice would be continuing to help your government treat its own citizens like hostile insurgents.

Can this not just be looked at at face value? Why all of this preposterous stuff? He's quite clear in the original  video interview what his intentions are. If this were a CIA/NSA/Chinese bought whatever person, wouldn't he be a little more forthcoming on his "agenda"?
Meanwhile the NSA has publicly admitted the bulk of what he has said was true.

So why are we spending time on the messenger, when we really should be having a conversation about the message? Why has there been such little formal response to this from all members of government?
No matter if it's legal or not legal, open large scale forums need to be taking place.

/ Does no one find it strange that people will take to the streets for the 2nd amendment, but the 4th and 5th may be at risk and people shrug or make up excuses?

How about this?

Is the synchronicity in names just a coincidence, or is it a message?

Bears repeating. This kid deliberately threw away any possibility of normalcy for the rest of his life, pissing off some of the most powerful and least forgiving people on earth in the process, for the sake of doing what he thought was right.

You can disagree with the ideals or the methods. But pretending that's not pretty ballsy? Wow.

Believing that crap is too much work. I like to keep my explanations well trimmed.

My read on this is that China is tired of the USA exposing dissidents and human rights abuses with asylum seekers, etc, so they bought their own who is exposing US human rights abuses.

Not that I buy it, but the idea of the CIA and the NSA having an escalating inter-agency tiff is kind of interesting.

Perhaps the most prominent Snowden truther is Naomi Wolf...People were a little surprised Friday when the prominent feminist author and activist posted a lengthy essay on her Facebook page wondering if Snowden may actually be a plant from "the Police State."

Naomi Wolf said something stupid? Yeah...color me shocked.

Wolf wrote that she has a "creeping concern" that Snowden "is not who he purports to be," mostly because Wolf expects leakers to be disheveled, inarticulate and litigious (apparently based on her experience with Jullian Assange), and Snowden is none of these things. "To me this reads as someone who has learned his talking points," she wrote. And his girlfriend "happens to pole-dance?" - very suspicious! "It is actually in the Police State's interest to let everyone know that everything you write or say everywhere is being surveilled," she wrote. Ergo: Snowden is likely a government stooge.

The missive was rightly mocked online...


How surprising that a mainline media outlet carefully frames this story as "conspiracy lunatics will jump at anything".    Salon's not saying that any of their arguments are unsupported, just that they "sound crazy, LOL".  The number one fact in favour of the triple agent theory is that he is still alive, when they can get you anywhere and leave no proof.  I wouldn't even be surprised if the American and Chinese intelligence communities are quietly collaborating on this to reinforce the necessity of their respective total-domestic-surveillance states.
