Is Edward Snowden A Double Agent?
Disclose TV ^

Posted on 08/01/2013 4:08:45 PM PDT by SteelToe

Several prominent voices in the alternative media are speculating that former CIA analyst and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden could be a double agent whose revelations are only serving to distract from the much bigger issue of the imminent escalation of the war in Syria.

Snowboy is the “Messenger”. He is no longer relevant. Look at the MESSAGE

USA is spying on everybody and everything.

Is that not something you should consider? Or is Snowboy still the only issue/problem? Wake up! Grow up!

What Snowden said is true.

I’m certain that thought has already occurred to the Russians.

They have been playing the defector game for almost a century now.

Pay no attention to Snowden’s info, sure.

Yeah, uh...your gov sees you and all the people in your family and all your friends and all your congregation as terrorists-in-training.

But don’t let bother you, don’t let it confuse or upset you.

You’re not doing anything wrong, are you? Then you have nothing to worry about.

For example I’m sure you’re not subscribing to the wrong magazines. Or clicking on the wrong web links.

You wouldn’t do that.

Or...say, you might not write bad content in an email, like criticize aspects of multiculturalism. You wouldn’t be checking out Tom Clancy books, right? Like you’re some gung-ho type.

Naw.

You’re probably not crazy enough to own a GUN, right? Naw, you’re not an extremist.

Nope.

You have nothing to worry about then, right?

See..? All better.

Don’t listen to the crazy claims of the bad, wayward Snowden extremist rebel person.

You don’t need trouble.

Do you..?

If the communist that Soros got into the presidency is blocked from instituting an Orwellean surveillance state that helps comunism overall?

Nonsense. Blocking this before power can be consolidated hurts communism as a whole. Although it may very well help Putin against the Europeans and the Chinese.

Interesting thing about Manning is that he had military contractor helpers, who are still in good admin standing. Same as Snowden.

I haven’t seen anything released other than general policy and overall objectives. I haven’t seen a single computer program or any technical information. I haven’t seen any justification from the government for the spying without warrant with even a single case that the same thing could not have been accomplished with a warrant and limited to the prime suspects. The government has not offered a single “documented” case that warrantless spying could not have been otherwise accomplished (does not include the “50 or so undocumented cases”) where they can’t provide any substantial information (because it would be obvious that they are shovelling BS). You will note how they wait until the government utters their latest lie before they release another document that exposes their latest crime.

I’m patriotic but what they are doing is criminal and has nothing to do with national security. The politicians, Progressives in particular, are accessing this information and using against the US and anyone who stands for the US. The people running these programs are not patriots but lackeys of the NWO.

Right after 9-11 there emerged this hackened, annoying mantra:

"If post 9-11 we change anything about the way we live THEN THE TERRORISTS WIN"

And they'd apply that little ditty to just about anything -- "Hmm...should I put off my drive to the coast a couple days, maybe...?"

"No way, bro..! Change at all, and ya know, THE TERRORISTS WIN, man...!"

"Hmm...garish red shirt, today, or the sedate grey one..?"

"RED SHIRT MAN..! RED ALL THE WAY..! Change anything and THE TERRORISTS WIN, MAN..!!! HANG TOUGH...!"

And those SAME people who said all that NOW tell you that when the gummint collects, collates and distributes ALL your electronic commo and that of EVERYONE you know, well...

IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER.

JUST CUZ..!!!

They dont' see any logical hiccup at all and have gone from hippy shuffle to ask-no-questions goose-stepper in NOTHING FLAT.

It has everything to do with undermining the Bill of Rights:

  1. no sort of unmonitored assembly,
  2. no untraced firearm (all ammo, components or weapons purchases themselves will have their own table/query — not registration, just meta-data about purchases),
  3. no unmonitored home activity (effectively negating the 3rd because comendeering your own devices is not quartering, nor are they soldiers.)
  4. no being secure in person or effects against unreasonable searches,
  5. no freedom from incriminating yourself [after all you have no privacy],
  6. no open courts, or ability to defend yourself [hey, we don't do it in the FISA-court, that's precedent],
  7. Who cares about civil suits, we have the law to squash you! (Plus we've exempted government agents from civil recourse, for the most part.)
  8. Bwa-ha-ha-ha; The War on Drugs has been sucessful in rendering THIS meaningless.
  9. Only useful in inventing new rights, ascending them to constitutional, and pronouncing new law. (See Roe v. Wade, also note how privacy only applies in cases of pregnancy, but not in life; else the NSA/TSA/IRS would be in trouble.)
  10. Bwa-ha-ha-ha; Wicard v. Filburn? GONZALES, ATTORNEY GENERAL, et al. v. RAICH et al.?

There are a couple of FReepers who are so terrified that there’s a terrorist in their bushes that they want big brother to protect them.

Apparently they’re so concerned that they want government spying on them just in case they themselves might be up to no good. LOL

All that would do is flag a communication.
You get enough flags and they get a warrant.

Did you read the article?

Suffolk County Criminal Intelligence Detectives received a tip from a Bay Shore based computer company regarding suspicious computer searches conducted by a recently released employee. The former employee’s computer searches took place on this employee’s workplace computer. On that computer, the employee searched the terms “pressure cooker bombs” and “backpacks.”

You are living under a rock if you believe that. There have been THOUSANDS of articles in magazines, newspapers and online about the blatant violation of the 4th Amendment by the NSA.

Not that particular one; the one I read had to do w/ a writer and her husband and was pulled as duplicate. I thought this one, of the same title, was that duplicate.
(She wanted to do some canning, and he was looking up backpacks [for hiking? School? Who cares.] and they got a visit from LEOs over it.)

The problem with secret operations is that they are cloaked in secrecy for a reason.
Some turd, exposes the operation and makes a wild accusation.

End result?
The operation gets scuttled, grave damage may result, lives could be endangered and in the end you will never get the truth, BECAUSE IT IS SECRET.

“The problem with secret operations is that they are cloaked in secrecy for a reason.”

I agree. If you are going to circumvent the Constitution and rights of +300 million American citizens (and most of the world too), you want to do it in secret.

“Some turd, exposes the operation and makes a wild accusation.

No accusations... actual documents.

“End result? The operation gets scuttled, grave damage may result”

We can only hope, but I doubt it.

“lives could be endangered and in the end you will never get the truth, BECAUSE IT IS SECRET.”

Lives are always endangered. Always will be. The revealed documents are facts. The problem is that it is being done in secret.
