The media have been given important new information in the case of NSA leaker Edward Snowden and don’t seem to know what to do with it. Snowden has been “outed” by the Russians as their agent.
The Washington Post reports that “Before American fugitive Edward Snowden arrived in Moscow in June—an arrival that Russian officials have said caught them by surprise—he spent several days living at the Russian Consulate in Hong Kong, a Moscow newspaper reported Monday.”

They’re just playing head games.
So Snowden is a Russian agent and lied about the NSA?
Why then has the NSA admitted so many instances of wrong doing themselves?
Is the NSA a Russian agency as well???
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
Actually, as the comment on the site said, the article sounds like it’s NSA disinformation to discredit Snowden.
So now the Russians are the good guys and the US are the bad guys?
They didn’t get much for their effort.
The Russians Are Coming - As Many Russian Spies Now In The U.S. as during the Cold War (2005)
>>In other words, Putin lied. <<
That what Intel people do for a living. From the President on down the list. If Snowden is working for Russia then we have some folks in our offices who didn’t do a good job of vetting him.
According to the article it seems it was a KGB classic disinfnormation operation. It may be the best spy thriller to date, and citizens are the “targets”.
The author’s name is below or comment on the web page.
The Washington Post reports that Before American fugitive Edward Snowden arrived in Moscow in Junean arrival that Russian officials have said caught them by surprisehe spent several days living at the Russian Consulate in Hong Kong, a Moscow newspaper reported Monday.
In other words, the Russians were in on the deception all along. It was an example of what the old Soviet KGB called disinformation. The Russians wanted people to believe that Snowden was a whistleblower desperately searching for a place to go.

I thought it was to discredit Putin as he seems to be more popular these days than Obama..especially when he is urging the US to put on the brakes regarding bombing Syria until the UN Investigators finish.
This article is fully deserving of your Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping,
LOL! ""The Washington Post" - which NEVER seems to find stuff like Barry Obama making a pilgrimage to the Gay Capital of Pakistan back in the
More like co-opted.
I swear these people are farking stupid.
It’s certainly a valid question.
So why send Snowden to Venezuela? If the Russians are trumpeting this as a successful spy op, then why not hail him as a state hero and give him the perks he has “earned” rather than packing him off to Chavez’s cronies?
So far, I’m not buying this new information.
That is a very good question! Maybe he has a new “Bourne Identity” role to play ?
Ah yes, that explains why the NSA confessed, they’re in on the deception.
I suppose this is all the “proof” Obama needs to nuke Moscow.
Mr. Potato Head.
There are no good guys left. IMHO
How are the Russians attacking Religion? By supporting the Orthodox Church? By banning public displays of homosexuality and support for homosexuality?
How are the Russians promoting terrorism? By laying waste to the Chechnyans? By refusing to get caught up in the morass that is the Middle East?
King Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden
As close as I could get to the King of Snowden
A striking resemblance. You might say he’s a “chip” off the old block. har har har.
Think globalists - what would be gained with this?
Beck did a program where he talked about all the scandals being tied together - but it did not include the NSA because it hadn’t happened yet (May 15).
The idea is the scandals will transform free speech - political speech.
Glenn Beck Maps Out How Scandals Reveal Obama’s Goal Of ‘Fundamentally Transforming’ America -
I agree it seems to lack proof.
There are hypertext links in the article, but I couldn’t put them in the post.
I’ll watch the video. But a quick question, does GB think the scandals were deliberately “leaked”?
I don’t have a subscription, so can only watch Beck’s videos that are available, so I don’t know what he thinks.
However, if you think about how the IRS scandal was leaked....it was completely staged. Think about the other scandals and how they came to light.
I think they are not going to stop “targeting”. Notice the term they used for the IRS scandal? They have not stopped targeting either.
So what does it mean? I don’t know exactly, but think it is something that only globalists would do and it deserves some thought.
It means we do not have the manpower to persecute everyone, but we can intimidate everyone.
IRS does seem to be staged, not doubt about it. I’ve always thought so.
Since the F&F, AP, IRS, NSA scandals seemed to be of ever increasing “scandalousness” I’ve suspected that they were deliberate “leaks” to divert attention from Benghazi. They weren’t as blatant as the IRS announcement though, so it could be a combo of deliberate “leaks” and opportunistic exploitation.
Although listening to GB now, he’s making the case for deliberate “leaks”.
This link was on another thread. It’s interesting.
I guess they finally got the No Way Out DVD from Netflix.
I agree with the comment below the article on the original site, “Any government that claims that Prism and its other metadata gathering programs are essential to ensure national security but does not insist that border security is essential to ensure national security is just plain lying to its citizens.”
The Russian government supports the Russian Orthodox Church which is run by the KGB, but Russia is very hostile to any other church, including other Orthodox churches.
How are the Russians promoting terrorism?
The Russians support many of America's terrorist enemies around the world including the Ayatollahs, Hezbollah, HAMAS, the PLO, the list goes on and on. The Tsarnaev brothers were probably Russian agents which would explain why the attacked the USA instead of attacking Russia, their supposed enemy.
To #8 re our guys didn’t do a good job of “vetting” Snowden.
Our guys have almost never done a good job of vetting Soviet spies, operatives and assets. Just look at Alger Hiss, Harry Dexter White, Frank Coe, and Klaus Fuchs, among other communist moles.
Will add in Phil Agee, Hansen, the Walker Family, etc.
But then, again, nobody vetted, weren’t allowed to vet, or were ignored about the communist affiliations of Bill and Hillary Clinton, Clinton secret nominee for Secy of Education; Venceremos Brigade (i.e. Cuban DGI) operation leader Prof. Johnnetta Cole (Spelman Un, etc); Van Jones of STORM, a maoist revolutionary organization (he was picked by Valerie Jarrett, another person whose background contains some significant Communist Party USA links; Anita Dunn, the closet Maoist; one of Secy of Education Arne Duncan’s aides, a child sexual predator/NAMBLA supporter; and many more.
Congress is full of Communists, marxists and socialists, with only Sen. Bernie Sanders openly admitting that he is a “socialist”, but his DSA (Democratic Socialist of America) membership has been largely covered up until the just published book by Trevor Loudon, “The Enemies Within: Communsigts, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress”. Full of names, documents, links, photos, and the marxist histories of too many members of the House and Senate.
Older members of Congress whose red-linked backgrounds were completely covered up by the mainstream media include the present John Conyers, Sen. Alan Cranston (OWI, WW2); George McGovern (ties to Tito); Ted Kennedy (and his secret liaisons with Moscow; the 1930’s paid Soviet agent Rep. Emanuel Dickstein; Charles Porter; Hugh DeLacy, Leon Panetta’s very good friend, etc.
I suggest that you get Loudon’s new book, as well as the earlier book “Barack Obama and The Enemies Within”, 2011, which is a guide to the Obama-support networks on the far left, with names, charts, photos, documents, etc. that will blow your minds.
For information about obtaining these two books, you can buy them on Amazon.com, or thru www.PacificFreedomFoundation.org.
A few of us did exposures of the Left in our writings for Human Events Weekly (in the old days), in COMBAT, TOCSIN, The Pink Sheet on the Left/American Sentinel, the Betsy Osth newsletter, the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade newsletter, the publications of the Capital Research Center (with Matthew Vadum still doing great expose’ work on leftist organizations), the columns of WND’s Jerry Corsi, Aaron Klein, and, of course, the master of the charters and subversion webs, Glenn Beck.
But on the national writing scene, the Washington Post and New York Times (LA Times also), covered up the leftist identifications of so many communists and marxists that you could write a book just about that. You’d be surprised at how many red leftists had guest columns in these papers, esp. the NY Times and WaPo, without any true identification of who they were.
Might mention that a few WaPo female writers are/were married to veteran radical leftists including one Cambodian Holocaust denier, Bill Goodfellow.
Institute for Policy Studies writers penetration of the Wash. Post almost made them members of the staff (See S. Steven Powell’s “Covert Cadre” from 1987 as a start, and watch for a new book on IPS coming out this Fall.
Add into this the studies done by Cliff Kincaid and his groups Accuracy in Media and USAsurvival.org, Prof. Paul Kengor’s books “Dupes”, Horowitz and Collier “The Destructive Generation”, Horowitz and Poe on Soros, and the scholarly works on Soviet operations/operatives by the late Eric Breindel and Herb Romerstein, the living Harvey Khlers and John Haynes, and lastly, the masterly toms of M. Stanton Evans on Sen. Joe McCarthy (”Blacklisted by History” , (and joinly with Romerstein, “Stalin’s Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelt’s Goverment” (now joined by Diane West’s book on the same subject), and you are now able to build a major library of books about communism in the US involving both foreign and domestic reds.
This is a lot of reading but I guarantee you that you will immediately see that the US Government (with the exception of the Hoover years), has done a stinking job of “vetting” reds of all kinds who have wormed their way into our government, with the Obama Administration being the worst security slacker in American history, followed by the Clinton-Gore and Carter-whoever administrations in close second.
If you wonder why we are losing our influence around the world, just look at who got appointed by Clinton/Obama from the Attorney General on down (Perez, Dunn, Panetta, Rice, Powers, Brennan, Clapper, Carol Browner/Lisa Jackson, etc).
Any real vetting of them would have kept them out of positions of influence and power (Brennan and Clapper being largely incompetent in recent years).
Now you know the rest of the story!
Who said he lied about the NSA?
Too little, too late. I don't believe a thing this government says. There are only assertions, no proof.
This fiction comes from the bowels of the obama political machine....probably axlerod.
Outstanding post! Well done!
Ah yes, that also explains why the Russians specifically warned us about them repeatedly.
Interestingly enough, no one seems to be saying that...
Who made this allegation? Nobody knows. They chose to remain anonymous.
The FBI said they were asked for information about Tamerlane Tsarnaev in 2011 by a foreign government, but when the FBI asked for more information about him, they did not receive it.
Tsarnaev traveled to Russia in 2012. If the Russia knew he was an extremist, why did they allow him to travel to and from Russia?
He's describing the US. Of course, after Nork, Chicom and a bunch of Mozlem countries. But at this point, Russia has much more freedom of speech and press than the US.
I read that Russia offered the info to the US and the FBI didn’t care or respond or something similar.
