When they called Edward Snowden an "NSA Insider" it made me suspicious. For one thing he only just turned 30 years old and although he apparently worked for the NSA I can't believe he would be considered an "insider" being so young. I don't consider someone an insider just for working for someone and the idea that someone so young could have truly attained insider status seems fishy to me.
I think it is very possible that as you say he is some kind of propaganda tool or at the very least a useful idiot who was profiled and allowed certain information with the knowledge he would leak. The PTB may be evil but they are not stupid.
