NSA Leaker Edward Snowden Seems To Be Another False Hero Created By Intelligence And Media Circles

[ Blacklisted News - ]

It seems as if we are getting new information about the National Security Agency (NSA) and the extent of its spying and surveillance programs on a weekly to bi-weekly basis.  Ever since Edward Snowden the former NSA contractor leaked a myriad of secret documents exposing these programs, we hear more and more about just how wide spread the NSA’s activities have been.  But who exactly is Edward Snowden?  This is a question that not very many people have asked.  Much of what has been revealed by Snowden only confirms what many have been saying about the NSA for well over a decade.  The only difference is that prior to the Snowden leaks, people who talked about the extent of the NSA’s surveillance programs were dismissed as conspiracy theorists.  Now it is an accepted fact that the NSA spies on and collects data on almost anything you could possibly imagine.  Despite this, there is something very fishy about the Snowden narrative when you take into consideration his alleged background with the U.S. Army, the CIA and other government institutions.  Not to mention the comical events that transpired after he fled the country to Hong Kong and later Russia.  He just has the look and feel of a character invented by media hype and propaganda.  Although we’ll never know his true intentions, it is highly probable that these leaks were allowed on-purpose so the U.S. government could indirectly reveal to the world the full extent of the NSA’s capabilities.  This possibility is worth considering since a press conference announcing these activities would not be a workable course of action.  With dissent on the rise and independent voices in the alternative media doing severe damage to the credibility of the U.S. government, these leaks may have been sanctioned as a way to discourage free speech and growing dissent against American imperialism.
