If there was ever much doubt the Edward Snowden relationship with the NSA was that of an agent (most likely of Russia) penetrating a top-secret intelligence target, consider this:
Snowden reportedly obtained the passwords of 20-25 NSA employees – saying he needed them to do his work as a contractor- then used those passwords to download highly-classified material–which he stole, and hightailed out of Hawaii with.
His supporters claim he did that “to protect us” .
Guess that’s why he made it available to the people who had financed and prepared Luxury-Class lodgings for him.
The Guardian, right ?
Hardly ! The Guardian hasn’t got a pot to pee in-or a window to throw it out of.
Who does that leave us with ?
Could the nice Russians sheltering him now have had other-than “warm and fuzzy” motives ??
Wow ! That’s a real puzzler !
