The distrust and questioning of Snowden's motives and allegiances fits the conspiracy in conspiracy in conspiracy analytic nature of this site and
its members but it is always true that no one likes to be told the truth, not even so-called or self-proclaimed 'truth-seekers.'
No doubt in my mind that he lacks credibility with some simply because he is not behind bars or dead. Although it is hard to believe he isn't, I
think he isn't because making him a martyr would validate his cause and TPTB don't like the unknown anymore than we do. The EU nations didn't want
to gamble his hand but of course Russia has nothing to lose. However, Snowden certainly plays with fire in his latest chess move. I wouldn't be
surprised if finds his asylum is not renewed.
Disinformation and destroying Snowden's credibility is more effective than jail or death at this point. I truly believe some here on ATS are paid a
salary to participate in those methods or fancy themselves as such.
I believe he believes in his proclaimed cause and I, perhaps naively think he did do all of this on his own. I don't believe he is a staged puppet,
although he is and will be used by any and all he comes in contact with. Is he part of an extremist 'patriot' group? Possibly. A Russian spy? No.
IMHO Snowden is a genius chess player who is buying his time while the machine figures out how to beat him and it will at some point. He knows it too.
But, in his own words, he has already accomplished his mission. Now is just fighting off the vultures.
