Any one who likes doing cryptic crossword puzzles may see some similarity in the following working. For those not familiar with cryptic crosswords,
well, 'The Guardian' is a good source for cryptic crossword puzzles.
So, about the enigma/puzzle that is 'Edward Snowden'.
A Prism won't help us break this enigma into its separate parts, but we can break it on syllables, so let us do that:
Ed - Ward - Snow - Den
Now, what do these separate syllables tell us:
Ed = Ted, teddy, teddy bear --> Bear
Ward = War and D --> War 'with' D
Snow = happens when and where its cold --> Cold
Den = a secluded place, a hiding place --> A Hideout
Replace the syllables with the interpretations:
Bear War with D Cold A Hideout
Read it from right to left and adjust slightly to make sense:
A hideout Cold War with D Bear
A hideout with D Cold War Bear
A hideout with the cold-war bear
How funny would it be if he actually ended up hiding out in Russia - the land of the cold war bear!? Oh... hang on... lol
Nothing distracts the masses like a good ol' illegal release of supposedly secret stuff. One man's morals wouldn't let him stay silent. Several
thousand men and women on both sides of the Atlantic have no problem staying silent and not speaking up in support of Edward Snowden. Not one verifies
all his claims.
Are we being too gullible ATS? Do we believe it just because it casts the government in a negative light?
