Guess what ! most of what the media reports on most topics is true BUT the day you realise that is the same day all those conspiracies based on belief and no evidence are nothing more than religions! I get the distinct impression this thread is yet another chapter for conspiracy bible.
The media reports have clearly provoked a large dose of cognitive dissonance with you.

Why do I always say "IF Snowden even exists"?
Is it because I think I am clever and want to make sure the NSA spies know that I know?
Is it because I actually don't know and do not trust the media and so therefore remain open to the possibility this is all a huge hoax to propel a desire for world govt or to collapse the USA?

Agree with you and the OP. People are so quick to jump on - "We're going to get the real truth from this guy."
MSM all over it - tells you one thing. The real people trying to tell the truth, isn't spoken about by the MSM.
Snowden hasn't said anything that we don't already know.
And TPTB, sit back and laugh at all the gullible people. And continue to take names.

This is beautifully stated. I am one of the baddies that is a bit suspicious of this Snowden thing. He may be an unwitting patsy and genuinely due the outpouring of encouragement from the world. It does not hurt for future whistleblowers to see that he is supported.
Intentional or not, it is another distraction from people getting on with the business of creating our new world. We are being fed the idea that we are not free, that we are being monitored and we should freak out and go into fetal position. But really, we need to work on the future and not be distracted by the Circus of Fear that they are playing night and day. I know I sound like an old schoolteacher, but we just need to be sensible and buckle down.
This forum is not just a whining forum. It is a place where people get an idea of, as my Irish friend says, 'how truly fooked we are'. Also, we get some really good technical information and a chance to discover what we really think about things. I could do with less trolling and derailing though, agreed.
But really, we are not fooked. The door to the birdcage is open. We are much freer than their propaganda would have us believe. The evil is just showing itself, all truths are being told. Observe and go do what you think needs to be done. We do not have to react against the truths we see, we have to build a new world. From what I have seen of most of the posters here, the future is bright.
Okay, I will go slink away to the Gray Area now...

The longer Snowden goes without releasing any real meat, the more suspect this whole episode becomes and the less likely anything of substance will get released. I keep reading and hearing about polls stating that 2 out of three people think Snowden is a criminal. This event is a non-starter or planted as a distraction from something else.

Other people will not take this thread seriously, or even give it a deserved look because they are alrady out flagging and starring anything with "Snowden" in its title..

I do have to wonder if Putin is really in on all of this, though.
