First of all, personally, I have a problem with Snowden's story. From my experience stories are run by the MSM because they want you to have the information. Think about the important issues of our days here that have been ignored or mocked and scoffed at in the MSM. Many stories that the government doesn't want you to pay attention to are designated as kooky conspiracy theories assigned to the mentally ill.
These recent "leaks" are really nothing new, not to those that have followed alternative news for a decade. These are things that a lot of us already knew...right? The difference here is that this was a story that was an "exclusive" to the Guardian and then was picked by everyone everywhere.
So really what did he leak? Now he is on the run for his life. Comes out within 12 hours of the story and falls on his sword. What is that I smell? I know drama when I see it. That is just my opinion.
The purpose of this "leak" is an attempt to normalize this type of behavior by the government. Immediately you have the Mafia Dons being paraded out to talk about how all of this is "legal". Oh...."Congress has been briefed 13 times", or whatever. And, "don't trip, we got you, and if you don't like that, there is gonna be a problem."
This is a turning point right here for this country. What will those that are just being made aware of this do? What is their response going to be? That my fellow ATS members is the BIG question.
