Assange Journalism

Very little from Snowden's many years as CIA 
employee prior to short-term as NSA contractor 
has been revealed. Turf battles between the two 
agencies are legendary, including planting their 
spies in each other's innards. CIA favors human agents, NSA technology.

This suggests Snowden was a CIA implant to out 
(selective) NSA technology. If so, it certainly 
worked, at least for a while until NSA used the 
operation to beef up funding for new and possibly 
stronger technology. Just look at its vast 
construction of MD tech temples and recruiting at universities.

To be sure all the 9/11-fattened spies benefited 
from Snowden's operation, and in that his op is 
hardly new, the spies have been running breaches 
for decades to enhance funding and deepening 
secrecy. They all work in concert at this, 
exchanging tips and perks with foreign spies.

Leaks, aka unauthorized disclosures, have been 
part of this from day one of spying, not just 
modern, but also ancient, even neanderthal. Spies 
beget spies, secrecy begets secrecy, ostensible 
betrayals beget ostensible betrayals. Favored 
journalists beget favored journalists. Outlaw mavericks beget the same.

The sanctimonious name "national security" is a 
relatively new moniker, circa 1947 in he US, but 
so are nations rather than royalties and 
theocracies. One way to tell who runs the shows 
is by looking at their self-vaunting monuments. 
In the case of CIA and NSA, look at their 
infrastructure for humans and technology, respectively.

Digital technology is an NSA operation, for 
example, journalism and academia run by CIA. 
Division between the two established by the 
National Security Act of 1947. CIA remained 
ostentatously above board, NSA hiding behind No Such Agency.

I assume Snowden is still working for CIA, bound 
by a secrecy agreement until he dies, not the 
secrecy-porous for NSA contractors. Presumbably 
Moscow assesses him this way, and will 
persistently suck his mind and blood as they run 
his worldwide recruiting operation in cahoots 
with CIA, NSA hot on their heels but winded by obesity.

Greenwald is a vain, useful idiot in this charade. So too Assange.

Mammon bless their Oscar-winning entertaining 
foolhardiness, aka "influence." Both tailoring 
bespoke regalia for Trump's royalist "L'├ętat, c'est moi."
