Is Snowden a distraction from

Is Snowden a distraction from what's going on in Syria?

I do not think he is. If anything he's helping Russia, Syria, and Iran shine a huge spotlight on what's going on in their own backyards.

After watching this video, I can't help but think to myself...

Is Snowden trying to prevent World War 3? Was that his real intention?

If you think about it, Ed Snowden gave Russia and China (Hong Kong) a serious PR makeover almost overnight. A lot of Americans have more respect for Russia and Putin than they do for Washington, D.C. and Obama.

Russia really likes Ed Snowden, and it shows. He's been there how long now? They have very good reasons to treat him well because of the information he holds. That information COULD prevent what the video above was talking about.

Did Snowden know about what was going on in Syria? Did he see or hear the plans for World War 3?

Did he deliberately give himself over to, "the enemy," to prevent war?

Ed Snowden has put Russia back on the political map. He has given Putin a voice that western media actually pays attention to, unlike before.

I think Putin now wants to use Snowden's information as a tool to prevent an attack on Syria or Iran.

Speculation, yes. True? I hope so.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
