Snowden may have been Chinese patsy

Postby rapier57 » Tue Jun 25, 2013 9:59 pm

Bloomberg put up this story:

http://mobile.bloomberg.com/news/2013-0 ... leaks.html

casting questions on Snowden's claimed altruistic motives, and offering up that Snowden may have been manipulated by the Chinese (who we assume are now in possession of all the material Snowden took from the NSA). Even the Wikipedia entry for Snowden (though it is changing daily - he's no longer called a hero there) had that he spoke Mandarin and had been to China for some extended period.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_snowden

Since he is sitting in the Moscow airport, currently, we can only assume the Russian's are getting similar access to the NSA files. All with the full support and assistance of Julian Assange/Wikileaks.

While I won't call him a spy (yet), the information indicates he may have been manipulated and turned by both the Chinese and Assange. Or, he may have been groomed and placed. In any case, how he got the positions he did, with the scant education and experience he had, indicates there was some leverage used to get him into position.

Of course, the Washington Post published a story claiming Snowden doesn't exist.

Snowden is still in the Moscow transfer section of the airport, at last report. If he made a serious mistake he may end up in sunny Siberia instead of Ecuador. The Russians may just take what he has and put him on ice.

He did it for a book and movie deal.
