Why Edward Snowden, Why?

Here are some of my thoughts about this whistleblower:

This glimpse of transparency is great. It great ammo for us kooks and gives incredible credibility to the case against the gov and it's march toward tyranny. It really is an eye opener for doubters because it is so egregious.

But at the same time I think it is obvious that TPTB want us to know. When it comes to an orchestrated media blitz, which is what this has turned into, I do not for a second believe that the media is waking up or any such non-sense... but what I am very unsure of, is why. What is their angle? What is the purpose of making this THE story?

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Totally Agree

and here is my $.02

All of these conspiracies coming out recently are part of the larger plan to take down the United States - specifically to destroy what is left of the Constitution and replace it with the NWO.

It could be orchestrated such that the "problem" that is ultimately identified is not the PEOPLE who committed the crimes, but the SYSTEM that allowed them to occur. Blame the corruption on the failed experiment of the USA (i.e. freedom), take it down and put in the NWO.

They have been doing this for a long time with Capitalism. They all point to it's failure, and the people agree - but we all know that it's just Cronyism which TPTB installed to demonize the thing they seek to destroy.

Lastly, this also presents an opportunity for a major false flag operation to take place if TPTB don't like anything that develops from this. If it's not going according to plan... TPTB say "pull it".

Is it really orchestrated?

Or can the media not ignore something when it gets plastered atop of Drudge and social media goes nuts?

It looks like Wapo could have broke the story but sat on their hands. Big surprise there. Then again, why the heck did he think he could trust Wapo?

He didn't trust WaPo.

He didn't trust WaPo. According to NYT WaPo was looped in by Laura Poitras, who was contacted only after Snowden had trouble connecting securely with Greenwald (Greenwald didn't know how to set up encrypted email properly in spite of Snowden and his best efforts).

See here: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/11/us/how-edward-j-snowden-or...

So WaPo getting looped in was totally unintended, it seems, and for that reason they were just as quickly jettisoned by Snowden once he was able to establish contact with Greenwald.

Yes, it seems to me it is

There is one thing between damage control addressing the issue and pumping it out. It's on all the fox news 'news breaks', all the talking heads are on it non-stop. There is a focus on it.

If they didn't want everyone to know there would be a quick mention of it and they would laugh it off, they aren't, so why??

These leaks will become more numerous and more crazy

These leaks will become more numerous and more crazy

the freedom of information that makes up the internet will spread these farther and faster

TPTB are doomed because they losing the power that comes with controlling the information flow.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

I agree,

but my question is why are TPTB using their controlled flow of information to pump it out??

Did you notice the lag from Alternative media to MSM?

Edward Snowden was on the front page of the DP for a good long time before the MSM started twisting the story. They are discrediting him by misquoting him and taking his words out of context.

Anyone who's watched the whole interview can see right through the MSM slant on this thing.

The Abuse of massive NSA data

The Abuse of massive NSA data collection of every American citizen is the "Chilling Effect" it has on freedom of expression. Every American now knows they better watch their language in all their communications because the Federal Government is recording everything you say.

You can sue private companies that violate your trust with your private information when you find out about it. The IRS violated the trust of persons by giving their personal information to their political enemies. How easy is it to sue the federal government for violating your trust?

Wondering as well

Is there a counter-punch or a judo move coming?

It is puzzling.

William Binney spoke out about this during Bush. He was among those that designed this--- find Operation Stellar Wind.
I agree with you. Snowden is out front and center in the media this time, and that's only because the media is allowing it to happen. It doesn't make sense that it's politically motivated, because the trail leads back to the Republicans. Strange.

Being woken up

to better position the neck for the ax.

Just my opinion, I hope I'm wrong. I am very cynical. ;)

Just open the box and see


but I'm not sure I'm sold on that because none are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free...

but at the same time some of these sociopaths think they need to find some 'optimal' population which would mean whacking a bunch of us, so we probably shouldn't rule anything out.
