Maybe The Reason Obama Hasn't Officially Responded About Ed Snowden

Maybe it's because Glenn Greenwald has stated that he's got more revelations about this that he has yet to release. So maybe the WH doesn't want to respond yet because they're not sure exactly how much is known.

Here is one of the new revelations:

Remember the stories about Chinese hacking attacks in Hong Kong? Turns out those were probably NSA attacks.

Now Hong Kong is demanding answers from Obama. Snowden 1 Obama 0

I highly encourage people to share any hard information they find here and elsewhere, since online media websites are reporting a virtual MSM blackout of any and all substantive information on the content of the NSA leaks.

Or, Maybe Obama has been honest.

He did state that he had no clue what has been going on with all these scandals, and by extension the US government in the past few years. Maybe he is telling the truth and hasn't commented on it because he doesn't even know its happening.
Why else would he need a teleprompter to answer the most basic questions. We all know it is hard work taking vacations every other week, give the man a break.

Or, Mebbe the party was at the White house?

and he had better things to do?

I agree with all points below.

It's called LEVERAGE, and it's been played brilliantly!

Speaking of leverage...

If I were Snowden, I'd protect myself by saying, "If I get 'disappeared,' or get convicted of treason or espionage, then very sensitive materials will be released."

I think he's handling this very well

I get what you are saying, but I think he's better off playing it close to the chest. The US gov't is well aware that he had access to sensitive, and embarrassing or harmful material, and I have no doubt he has some sort of "insurance plan" in place. However, I think stating that publicly would play into the spin that "He's a traitor!" -kind of making him look like the bank robber demanding to be put on the next flight out of town.

Agree. He doesn't have to state it publicly.

But he should make sure the "threat" gets back to TPTB privately.

Perhaps Obama doesn't know

Perhaps Obama doesn't know what Ed Snowden knows about Obama.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Reggie Love?

That would be hilarious! Or maybe Snowden knows which people in congress like kiddie porn.

Hmmm... Snowden did say in

Hmmm... Snowden did say in his interview that he was authorized to listen to the presidents calls. I thought he was just saying it in a way to explain the scope of the system. Maybe he was trying to send a different message.

You should probably note that when we use the term 'listen' we probably dont mean a person listening to each call. There is already commercial software that can anaylize and report on the conversations or flag calls. My guess is the government has capabilities similar to if not exceeding those in the show Person of Interest.

Paranoid minds think PARANOID things...

and I think we know what people are getting "paranoid". Uh huh, the White House, crooked Congressmen & Senators, hmmm, who else???

Boy, can you imagine the YELLING going on between the White House & the company he worked for? Yeh, here goes, "how much information did Snowden have access to?!!! Did he have access to Obama? Did he have access to Boehner & Feinstein and others?? Can we tell? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, he did?? Oh, nooooooo,crap!!!!!!"

There a lot of speculation

Found this to be an interesting take on the scandal - http://presstv.com/detail/2013/06/06/307524/us-tries-to-rein...

These people posit that israel was going to do something that was not in Americas interests...so we had to blindside them a bit.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Makes sense

They don't know how many lies to cover up yet.
