Snowden has done more damage than that of what I think they would deem acceptable for a pys ops mission. It's like trying to pop popcorn with a nuke.
Snowden has given the American people it's wake up call, what they do with it is up to us really.
But a psy ops I doubt it, they have the internet and NSA to find that nitty gritty out, Everyone at ATS = flagged.

I think they will work VERY hard in the coming days and weeks to make him appear like an agent of someone. Ours..Chinese... Freelance.. anything to destroy his credibility. It's not the first time this has happened. It won't be the last. Character Assassination is #1 in the counter- playbook though and it started first thing this morning.
I'd say the suggestion he's just a hired goon is precisely what we need to watch against falling for. It's about the only defense they have left for what he's brought out, short of just shooting him. They can't do that without making him a martyr. At least not BEFORE they've destroyed him.
Poor guy unleashed the Four Horseman and they are coming to gallop right over top of him and dance a little jig across his whole life. Past, Present and Future. Watch closely for how our Government goes about destroying a man they can't yet kill.

Another postulation I have is:
What if the government does not really have the equiptment or ability to actually carry out such a program?
Would it not serve some purpose to let the "terrorists" think they can be watched and use this dis-information as a deterrent to surpress the flow of communications?
