Is Edward Snowden what he appears to be - a courageous whistleblower who felt compelled by his conscience to inform the American public of a massive, illegal spying operation waged against them?  Or, is he - as Dr. Webster Tarpley and Naomi Wolf are suggesting - something far, far different?

Why does he hammer home the message of fear?  Why does he, in his first interview after the scandal broke, go so far as to advise the government on which law to prosecute him under?  Why does his travel itinerary (China, Russia, Cuba, etc.) read like a list of "anti-American" caricature states?  What was the point in associating him with Ron Paul?   Was Hong Kong's "refusal" to arrest and extradite him to the United States really due to paperwork errors?

Speaking of FEAR:

Now WHY would he say THAT??

TUNE IN!

...Because this story is far from over.
