The article goes on to say :
The claims came just days after U.S. President Barack Obama pressed Chinese President Xi Jinping to address cyberattacks emanating from China that Obama described as "direct theft of United States property." Snowden's allegations appear to give weight to claims by some Chinese government officials that the country has been a victim of similar hacking efforts coming from the United States. His claims came as Gen. Keith Alexander, the National Security Agency chief, testified at a U.S. Senate hearing that the country's cyberinfrastructure, including telephones and computer networks, is somewhat vulnerable to attack.
This would certainly seem an efficient solution for America to easily get hold of many of china's communications but why would he be giving out information like this? Isnt he just digging a deeper hole for himself?
I cant help wondering if his 'leaks' might just be something orchestrated by America itself. Are they just planting a spy in behind enemy lines by making him out to be a wanted man? Or maybe its just false info they are feeding to the Chinese?
Im sure we will be hearing plenty more about Snowden in the future.

World War Three will not be fought with armies but over computers.. The Chinese are fast out competing the USA on this front. They have a cyber army, the fastest pc in the world, some of the best satellites in space.. What good is the best military in the world if their satellites are down.
for the moment the US still leads the computer world, we invented the PC revolution yesterday, we still got that one.
