In the vacuum of America where we are rather egotistically based and where fear prevails over non-surprises related to covert missions utilized around the world, we are suddenly faced with dissecting the Administration over a tested procedure we missed when created and when utilized and when tested. It is the "hero" Snowden who set the conversation off and like good little headless chickens we ran with his already known information because we did not have the sensibility to read the public information on PRISM from Clinton (known then as Echelon Program,) through Bush, to Obama.
But in the din and sobs of Obama, Obama comes little tiny bits of information from our mysterious Mr. Snowden. Bits of information that prove him to be clever as a top notch spy. To put the mouse trap out for American's to scream over a known fact was not accidental. We reacted like it was news. So what was Snowden doing in that time? He was actually undermining the world of countries. US covert action with China, given to China. Pretty interesting that today we see UK covert at G20 summit involving world leaders like Putin is currently released by Snowden. Canada, you may be next.
No show of a reveal of Russian or China covert action to date from Snowden. Don't hold your breath on that coming kids, it smells like spy material and China and Russia won.
He can cause a war but he can also strengthen China and Russia who use covert action as well. This Snowden is not done. He may be the most damaging spy this planet has ever known by the time he is done.
