While working for spies, Snowden was secretly prolific online

(Reuters) - While working for U.S. intelligence agencies, Edward Snowden had another secret identity: an online commentator who anonymously railed against citizen surveillance and corporate greed.

"I can't hope to change the way things are going by overtly complaining, writing letters, or blowing things up," Snowden wrote in 2003 in response to a discussion about corporate greed on the Ars Technica online forum.

He very possibly was (is?) a Daily Pauler... Honest, I have no clue under which nick, though.

Anyhow, I guess we can (ought to) forgive him if he happens to be a less active poster lately...

Edward Snowden broke the left right paradigm by confusing it.

This tells me, this isn't about terrorism

This is nothing but bringing on total control of society.

They haven't caught anyone yet, 'even their own guy' speaking out against them. But they will continue to record everything about everybody to build an airtight grid. For what ever they have planned.
