Makes more sense for Obama to work directly with Cisco to gain access to our data traffic than trying to go through the Chinese.
And Cisco routers are all made in China.
The chicoms already know all this.
Pssst, most government networks contain routers and servers with chicom components too. Ditto the telecom systems.
Who decided THAT was a great idea?
Snowden is a peon. If he’d wanted to just sell info to the chicoms he could have done that completely under the radar and been a very wealthy man (if he had access to what he supposedly had access to). We’d have never known.
If he was just spying for the chicoms there was no reason to alert the LIV that they were being stalked. Even less so. Alerting the LIV might dry up a potential source of information for the chicoms too.
