This NSA spy scandal is nothing new. It only confirms what we have known for many years. There's something going on that is much deeper than what the MSM gatekeepers are telling us.
One clue is that the Israeli connections to the NSA spying are not being talked about much in the big time US media. The Israeli media does cover some of it though.
So is PRISM whistleblower Edward Snowden a new American hero right up there with Danial Ellsberg as some are saying? Or is he a Julian Assange type? My first thought was that he is not what he is portrayed to be. The cynic in me says we have to speculate "is he is still on the payroll?" As much as we would like to have heroes, deception is the way of war. If only Glenn Greenwald wasn't one of the biggest gatekeepers around? Where are your 9/11 leaks Glenn? We're still waiting for them.
