I can see where your mum is coming form on this one but i think not
The NSA has a stronger history than most of keeping a tight lip on, well everything.
I really cant see why the NSA would activly support Snowden to expose what might be one of their most valuable intelligence sources.
I don't doubt that there will be many who agree with what Snowden has done, the same way many in the intelligence community agreed with Katharine Gun when she exposed spying on UN officials in the run up to the Iraq war. That does not mean however that the NSA have supported him to leak this information.
besides right now i cant see this leading to Obama's impeachmentedit on 12-6-2013 by OtherSideOfTheCoin because: (no reason given)
It’s likely that the probe Ron Paul has been pushing—audit the Federal Reserve—has already been done by those who control unlimited global surveillance. They already know far more than any Congressional investigation will uncover. If they know the deepest truths, they can use them to blackmail, manipulate, and control the Fed itself. Therefore….when looking for who might have helped Ed Snowden punch a hole in NSA, we should think about who the NSA has been spying on. Not the little guy, not the medium-sized guy, but a very big guy. Perhaps a Goldman Sachs or a JP Morgan.
In this global-surveillance world, we need to ask new questions and think along different lines now.
For example, how long before the mortgage-derivative crisis hit did the Masters of Surveillance know, from spying on bank records, that insupportable debt was accumulating at a lethal pace? What did they do with that information?

My mom told me she thinks that everything is going just fine, the system is working just fine, since the ACLU filed lawsuits these issues are going to end up in front of the Supreme Court, who has already been ruthlessly attacking Obama's overstepping of Executive powers.
My guess is that anyone who calls him a traitor is going to end up in prison because they are hiding something that is going to come out with the leaked information. Obama is probably not going to be successful trying to cover his tracks by going after the A.P.
Maybe Obama was such a threat that the N.S.A. had to reveal itself in order to take him out. That was my mom's view, anyway - it is highly speculative!
