Yeah, well, there has been a LOT of “impersonating” going on in DC for the last five or so years.

What they mean is that you hire traitors who keep their mouths shut. The NSA is a greater threat to free America than any foreign enemy.

"This is why you don’t hire brilliant people for jobs like this. You hire smart people. Brilliant people get you in trouble."

It's been happening at the top instead of the bottom. Seeing that the debt-sucking establishment can't really do anything for itself, it's no surprise.

LOL! I'm sure all the other people still left in Snowdens position are taking the compliment very well!

What's not to trust about unnamed sources, NBC News and "top" NSA officials.

This report is worthless.

Edward Snowden accessed some secret national security documents by assuming the electronic identities of top NSA officials, said intelligence sources.

“Every day, they are learning how brilliant [Snowden] was,” said a former U.S. official with knowledge of the case. “This is why you don’t hire brilliant people for jobs like this. You hire smart people. Brilliant people get you in trouble.”

Apparently he's not very brilliant if they have proof that he assumed electronic identities. He's a system admin. They supposedly know what he did. Why would he be considered brilliant. This entire article sounds made up.

Big deal, those in government are posing as legitimate law abiding honorable officials pretending to abide by the Constitutional law.

They got pissed off due to the fact this guy blew the whistle on all their criminal activities.

I’m not convinced Snowden is pure as the driven snow. I will say there are some things we wouldn’t know without him. The things I learned, made me angry at the NSA.

Here are some things that bother me.

1. The NSA couldn’t avoid Snowden.
2. Security was so lax, he could screw them over royally.
3. It’s one thing to spy on foreign agencies, we expect you to. Don’t let some bumblehead out you for it. What security were you running, Keep It From Granny v1.0.0 vintage 1972?
4. Why do you need to capture data from me, a guy who has loved the idea of the United States since the moment I understood what our founding fathers achieved?
5. The NSA, as well as all other government agencies thinks I’m a threat, but don’t elevate the pooper scooper to defcon gazillion with Islamic adherents.

WTF

This agency has literally destroyed it’s street credibility with this and that stupid ass comment since this all started. We knew they were lying when they said it. Why not stop digging. The hole you’re in is deep enough.

The problem is not brilliance; it’s quite the opposite. I’m glad Snowden’s brilliance did lead to the NSA revelations. Now, 0-bummer’s stupidity in all matters foreign and domestic has yielded predictable results.

Very interesting. Snowden might have even been KGB/FSB trained for his mission.
