> Rumor has it he was FSB.
Really? Got any evidence to back that up?
I've heard a rumour that he was FSM (praise his noodly appendages!)
> trouble is that Snowden like Manning don't understand why secrets are kept. In truth they are done to protect you. Yes, you.
Yes, IMG, keep drinking the Kool Aid. Remember the Government and the Security Services should have the right and the ability to snoop on everything you and we do and say and read and think because only then can we be protected from Terrorists and Drug Dealers and Paedophiles (oh my!)
And even better, such snooping should be opaque and hidden behind closed doors and not subject to any scrutiny or oversight by our elected representatives because only then can our rights and liberties be protected!!
