That "found" snowball recording is not SSB. Anyone who has heard SSB can recognize that immediately.

I've heard naval exercises on Canada's East Coast that have used encrypted VHF for comms. It did sound similar to this "Snowball" in the fact that some of the conversations were totally comprehensible and others had that "Encryption digital sound" for lack of a better description.
Well, it's very rare to hear a CW burst with SSB. CW can operate in the SSB sections, but not visa-versa. Also, the CW is either gibberish, or a poor hand on a mechanical (not digital) keyer.... and much too short to be anything.... it sounds more like it's trying to be a repeater ID, which you'll never hear anywhere near SSB... VHF/UHF FM only. If you compare to the MP3 I posted, the background noise sounds more organic and random, where the background of the hoax file sounds manufactured.
