"Рыбкин, Иван Петрович - 002, aka Edward Snowden! At your service, comrades!" or The Dupes Of The Year: Snowden Affair As A Mass Manipulation Campaign Planned And Organised By Russian Military Intelligence


This post was repeatedly deleted from "Blogger" (I do not know by whom, most likely by Russians), that is why I need to reproduce it again. Unfortunately, the latest updates appear to be lost.

"Рыбкин, Иван Петрович - 002, aka Edward Snowden!At your service, comrades!" or

The Dupes Of The Year: Snowden Affair As AMassManipulationCampaignPlanned And Organised By Russian Military Intelligence

The views and thoughts expressed in this post are strictly my personal ones.

I do have the impression thatSnowdenaffair and some events prior and subsequent to it constitute a carefully planned and executed Russian Intelligence operation, most likely by theGRU,judging by its scope, precision and aggressive bent,possibly as a retaliation for their previous failures (detection and arrests of their agents in June of 2010).

I also have the impression thatMr. Snowden is a mentally ill person: he appears to be intensely paranoid which can be viewed as a part of schizoid personality disorder, probably anorectic and probably has some psychosexual problems: "I’m famously paranoid... I was a virgin source". He also appears to be, quite obviously, grandiose, which can be viewed as a part of narcissistic personality disorder; any personality and its disorder is a complex mosaic. It is also possible that he is overtly or latently psychotic and delusional. 

"In May 2013, Snowden was permittedtemporary leave from his position at the NSA in Hawaii, on the pretext of receiving treatment for his epilepsy." This information on "Snowden's epilepsy", although sketchy, might be very telling and significant: some persons suffering from various types of epilepsy experience heightened susceptibility to hypnotic suggestions and a unique psychophysiological ability to be placed in a state of induced, deep hypnotic trance with the potential consequences for their behaviors to be manipulated and directed by a controlling outside force, including, potentially, the "insertion" and reinforcement of ideas (usually if they do not contradict substantially the subject's own mindset and views but sometimes even if they are contrary to subject's previous experience and values).Snowden's illnesswas also mentioned in a different context, as an explanation of his difficulties in adolescence."Snowden's father explainedthat his son had missed several months of school owing to illness and, rather than return, took and passed the tests for his GED at a local community college." "Missing several months of school" due to "illness" is quite an unusual and irregular occurrence. On the basis of reviewingthe video of his interview in Hong Kong(which was discussed in some details elsewhere), I have some preliminary impression that some twitching-like movements in his mouth, which are quite notable, especially to a trained observer, might be involuntary and might be a manifestation ofTardive Dyskinesia, which usually is a side effect of treatment with neuroleptic medication. These two (or three) pieces of information might be complementary to each other and might be an indication that Snowden experienced in his adolescence a prolonged, of several months duration,psychotic episodewhich required treatment withneuroleptics. His "epilepsy-like illness" and a hypothetical susceptibility to outside suggestions, with or without deephypnotic trance(which, generally speaking,was of great interestto Russian Intelligence services for a long time, probably from early 1930-s) is also an indication that this health vulnerability or peculiarity might be continuously exploited by the outside forces which now control him, and this can be done in quite sophisticated and almost undetectable ways.

As of late, it seems to me, there is a tendency among various Russian secret services (this tendency apparently spread by a certain way of corruptive "osmosis") to use a certain substance, "психотропный препарат СП-117" which probably is close to what is called a "truth serum" to deepen and enhance the susceptibility to induced trance and suggestions, as the case ofIvan Rybkin(Иван Петрович Рыбкин) and possibly some others might illustrate,the details of which, although quite educating, I must omit due to the limitations of space and time and the unlimited ways of observing them.



Russia - fromTruth serum - W:

A defector from the biological weapons department 12 of the KGB "illegals" (S) directorate (presently a part of RussianSVRservice) claimed that a truth serum codenamed SP-117 was highly effective and has been widely used. According to him, "The 'remedy which loosens the tongue' has no taste, no smell, no colour, and no immediate side effects. And, most important, a person has no recollection of having the 'heart-to-heart talk'" and felt afterwards as if they suddenly fell asleep. Officers of the S directorate used the drug primarily to check the trustworthiness of their own illegal agents who operated overseas, including even heroes of the service, such asVitaly Yurchenko.[21]According toAlexander Litvinenko,Russian presidential candidateIvan Rybkinwas drugged with the same substance by FSB agents during his alleged kidnapping.[22]

"В редакцию поступило заявлениеот бывшего сотрудника ФСБ Александра Литвиненко, проживающего сейчас в Лондоне. Он, в частности, утверждает, что все указывает на то, что в отношении Рыбкина применяли психотропный препарат СП-117. Он используется в ФСБ в подразделениях контрразведки и по борьбе с терроризмом, в исключительных случаях против особо важных объектов. Препарат действует на орган, который в мозгу человека отвечает за контроль за его поведением, то есть тот, в отношении которого он применен, не в состоянии полностью контролировать свое сознание, и говорит все что, знает, то есть отвечает на все вопросы откровенно. С человеком, который находится под воздействием СП-117 можно делать все что угодно и по прошествии времени он не в состоянии будет подробно вспомнить внятно объяснить, что же с ним произошло на самом деле, с кем он встречался и что говорил."


Some of these notable cases I will mention though: the strange and mysterious death ofNicole John, a daughter of the US ambassador to Thailand in NYC at the end of August 2010, soon afterViktor Bout's extradition "was eventually mandated by the Thai High Court in August 2010" and possibly the cases ofGareth WilliamsandDenis Yevsyukov. The occasional reports of "drugging and kidnapping" also pop up here and there in the Russian press sometimes.

The wave of "klonophyllinshchiks" (клофелинщик,клофелинщики) those who allegedly use a substance called "Klonofilin or Klofilin" (which sounds close to the name of a long acting benzodiazepine, "Klonopin", but in fact, in literal translation means "the one which is liked byclones (robots, zombies, etc.)or having some affinity with them); in early 2000-s, at least in the capitals, which was used, as suspected, rather broadly by criminals to put their victims to sleep; might also be an indication that some substances and instructions for their use found their way into the criminal world from the top-secret KGB laboratories, similar to thosementioned by Ms. Smirnova, in those "hungry and trying" for them years, in late 1990-s and early 2000-s, when they apparently felt so "neglected and abandoned" that they decided to unload some of their "top secrets" and in a very practical way.

Since Mr. Snowdenwasmost likely prescribed some medication, and possibly some barbiturates and/or benzodiazepines for the treatment of his somewhat mysterious "epileptic illness" and might have used or abused some other ones, which might be in some circumstantial connection withhis girlfriend(the true nature of this relationship is still unknown well publicly) and her lifestyle of a nightclub dancer, his putative suggestibility might have been enhanced by some drugs, prescribed or otherwise. His appearance at the Hong Kong interview: generally blunted, monotonous, "restricted" affective range with expressions of controlled but intense anger and rage confirms indirectly the possibility of benzodiazepines and/or barbiturates and/or other drugs use or abuse. 

I think that Mr. Snowden and his illness were cynically and probably with some prior knowledge exploited by the GRU for the purposes ofideological and informational aggression. The participation and cooperation ofChinese(and possibly other services, e.g.Iranianand of someLatin Americancountries) also appear to be quite likely. This does not exclude the importance ofthe issuesthat have been raised, although I do not see anything particularly new or extraordinary in them. America is strong enough to handle many and any problems, andwill and is doing it. This is not the point.The point isthat this whole hullabaloo looks as anact of ideological aggressioninstigated and introduced by foreign powers forunmistakably hostile purposes: to weaken the first and leading country of the world which they see as a domineering competitor. The healthy democratic process will and is taking its course and the needed amendments and corrections are and will be made. However this is not the way to start this process, under the hostile pressure from hostile "powers" (which apparently feel pretty much "depowered", if not "deflowered") which had created and used this situation for their own hostile purposes.

Mr. Snowden, in his sick,pathological grandeurand definitely tohis new employersglee and facetious satisfactiontries to directly oppose himself personally and tochallenge the Presidentof The United States to debate and discussion. Please excuse me for this strong expression but I cannot call Mr. Snowden anything else but a little sick nothing piece of shit. And other people around himwho try so hard to fan the flamesof this "affair" are in same way sick and are in the same shitty company. A good Russian word for them is "выскочка": "[a little nothing] upstart, parvenu", the one who wants or tries to jump out of his place.One of the optionsis probably just to spit on him and to ignore him and his sycophants;they are nothing morebut the cheap little nothings, trying to make some money and publicityfor themselves; they are"the useful idiots"ofanti-Americanismas an ideology, international political disease, mortal fear and rabid hatred, because they feel that America threatens them and theircriminal ways of life, whichthey want to expandunto others. Russian criminalStalinismrears its ugly, half alive and half demented head again. 

Thesnowdenchiks and their ilktry hard to dotheir snow jobs, but they themselves eventually will be drowned and buried under the mountains of theirdirty Russian snowwhich has no other way but to melt and to pass by as water under the the bridge in a new and inevitablethawand to be forgotten forever: a proper punishment for thecrime of Herostratus.

OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR | The Drive to Blame Russia By THOMAS GRAHAM - Published: August 21, 2013 - NYT


Mike Nova comments:

These are, it seems to me, the most surprisingly"dovish" remarksfrom aformer "by default hawk". The "real challenge Russia poses on the world stage" cannot be measured reliably by her military and political might alone; the all pervasive and eventually a decisive factor,the mentality of the country and her leaders, might be just if not more important, along, probably with some deep non-conscious or semi-conscious roots and determinants of this particular "national mentality", or, as is a more familiar term, "national character"; in her role "on the world stage" or in her proper place in The United States' relationships with the world, including Russia.

It is interesting to note, thatAllan Dulles, one of the most artful and skillful observers and planners,emphasised this "intangible" setof factors in general assessments and impression forming, including any country's national habits, "spirit", culture, literature, etc.

It seems to me, in my very humble opinion (I am not by any means an expert or specialist in Russian affairs; just an occasional, by the side of the road, observer), that contemporary Russian social and political mentalities are thoroughly soaked in her historically formed, deeply and broadly rooted "criminal element": "the criminal element in society... the criminal underworld" (which was always acknowledged by Russian Communists - Stalinists as a "related, socially close element"; read: the same cutthroats, killers, robbers and thieves; with somewhat unusual for them honesty and directness) and that they "wash off their colors" quite readily, and irrespectively of her, Russia's motives or desires, in her zombie-like, habitual historical trance; most recently in her post - and - neo - stalinist mode, embodied and em-faced by the current Russian president V. Putin and his ruling circle. This "criminality of national conscience", "a Moral Black Hole", to share the expression and the idea ofAriel Cohen, might be viewed as one or the most pervasive and important for understanding traits of her national character and the current point of her "national psyche". And which is more: it carries an expansionist, messianic, almost religious quality in it and seeks, for its own safety, to pervade, influence and control everything and everyone.

Quote from
WebMemo #3306 on Russia and Eurasia
June 30, 2011
Reset Regret: Moral Leadership Needed to Fix U.S.–Russian Relations

By Ariel Cohen, Ph.D. and Donald N Jensen, Ph.D.:

"A Moral Black Hole.
The roots of the Russian elite’s discontent lie in imperial nostalgia, phantom pains of autocracy, and questionable morality. The end of communism resulted in a moral black hole—a deep spiritual and identity crisis among the elites. Corruption, alcoholism, and blurred lines between organized crime and authority reflect general alienation, recklessness, and fatalism.
Nations fail, St. Augustine argued, because peoples fail. A healthy society can correct a deficient state, but even the best-designed states will founder if they are based upon a deficient civil society.

This degradation bears directly on Russia’s conduct of its foreign policy. Those who keep calling for an engagement that will eventually transform Russia cannot see thatit is the West, not Russia, that is being transformed by this contact."

Political and social diseases are contagious, we might conclude; just as it was saidabout "insanity".

This is a part ofcriminal mentality(which might includea "second rate spy" mentality in the case of Russiaalso): to view the world as one huge criminal enterprise and other players as the competing criminals and crooks; and "if they are not, they should be turned into the such and with all the sorts of arsenals of instruments", according to this mentality.

That is why, it logically follows that Russia is a threat and will be a threat until this historically determined "criminal element" in her psyche is eradicated or is, at least, effectively controlled. Russia' quality as a present and a potential future threat is confirmed by her duplicitous, hypocritical and selfish international strategies and behaviors and her shortsighted, reactionary and oppressive domestic policies in this current "Putin Redux cum Regent" term.

"12 Jul 2013
As a rule, when a cleared intelligence employeeseeks refuge in another country running a hostile intelligence service while carrying gigabytes of top secret documents, that isn’t the behavior of a whistleblower. That is the behavior of a defector. The involvement of known FSB operatives at his asylum acceptance – and the suddenly warm treatment of HRW and Transparency International after months of government harassment – suggests this was a textbook intelligence operation, and not a brave plea for asylum from political persecution.

Snowden told reporters today that he has no desire to harm the U.S., and wants the country to “succeed,” whatever that means. I’m sure the White House is relieved to know a 30-year old IT worker has its best interests in mind as he preaches about human rights from one of the world’s worst human rights abusers.

Most of Snowden’s most prominent defenders were in touch with him long before he chose to leak; Wikileaks, which has developed deeper ties to the Russian and Belorussian governments, apparently helped Snowden travel to Moscow. This looks like the first trickle of information before a bizarre — and complex — intelligence operation gets blown open in the public. That doesn’t mean Wikileaks wittingly participated (useful idiots abound) but I bet money U.S. counterintelligence officials are now wondering just how deep the Russia connection to Snowden — and, to Wikileaks — really goes."

"Kenneth deGraffenreid, former National Security Council staff intelligence director, said Snowden’s embrace by former KGB officials is a sign the former contractor is being used as a pawn in an international program of “active measures,” political operations aimed at harming the United States.

“And the United States is apparently totally unequipped to address this threat,” deGraffenreid said in an interview, adding that he doubts that either the FBI or CIA has any counterintelligence programs designed to thwart such anti-U.S. political operations.

DeGraffenreid said Snowden, along with Army Pfc. Bradley Manning who was charged with leaking secrets to WikiLeaks, are part of a global anti-American network “that runs from Russia, to China to Iran to Venezuela to WikiLeaks and the European Union – all of whom want to do ill toward the United States.”

“Snowden is being used as a pawn in this and we have no ability, as we did during the Cold War, to conduct counter-active measures and political warfare,” he said."


July 18, 2013
The Company He Keeps Hero, fool or knave?

History gives plenty of reasons to be skeptical of "whistleblowers" like Edward Snowden.
Michael Weiss- See more at:

"Journalists who have abandoned their professional skepticism of Snowden, his methods and his motives would do well to revisit the case of another leaker once heralded as a champion of transparency and civil liberties: Philip Agee, the rogue CIA agent who published scores of names of covert U.S. operatives from Europe to Africa. History hasn’t been kind to the initial assessments of Agee as a brave “whistleblower” and speaker of truth to power. Indeed it didn’t take too long for Agee to quite clearly reveal himself as a Soviet operative.
Much has been written in recent weeks about refraining from turning Edward Snowden into the real story and keeping our eye firmly affixed on the NSA’s disregard for the privacy of its own citizens. This argument has merit, though it would have even more if Snowden had not chosen to make the story all about himself, first by seeking refuge in authoritarian states hostile to the United States, then by rendering moral judgments about those states solely on the basis of how they have treated him.

Is he simply a fool to believe that Vladimir Putin has “earned the respect of the world” for welcoming a former U.S. intelligence contractor onto Russian soil with reams of classified security documents? (Perhaps we should ask the family of Sergei Magnitsky, or Alexei Navalny whether the Putin regime deserves our respect.)

Is Snowden so desperate to avoid capture by Washington that he will prostrate himself in this way, in the confidence that his many admirers and cheerleaders will extend to him the benefit of every doubt and not bother to question the very questionable stagehands now surrounding him? Or is he a knave who knows exactly what he’s doing and getting away with it with a little help from his friends? We cannot know the answer from the scant information available to us in media accounts. But if history is any judge, there should be no assumptions accorded to the good faith of ex-spies who wind up as wards of dictatorial regimes."

Mike Nova comments:
This article by Michael Weiss in "The American Interest" draws very important and enlightening parallels and analogies between theAgee affairand the Snowden affair. Apparently, in both of them the turncoats-traitors-defectors were used mostly as a very convenient cover for the materials obtained by the KGB and/or GRU (the same but military "kontora") as a separate effort: planned, well organised, systematic, meticulous, performed in advance and coordinated with the main goals of the operation, one of which, in this most recent Snowden case, probably was to weaken and to limit the scope of domestic surveillance under the pressure of public's privacy and other concerns, in order, among the other objectives, to make the detection of Russian "sleeper" and other agentsmore difficultand to retaliate for the past failures associated with these detections. It is conceivable that the strategies and the mechanics of past "successful operations" are studied, reused and recycled by these agencies, since the new good ideas are not that easy to come by.

"Were the NSA files and information obtainedby Russian (Military Intelligence?) hackers by themselves first and later "conveniently" fed to Snowden or skillfully "inserted" into his "download files"? This might be at least a partial answer to the rather extensive size of his "collection", the exact contents of which still are undetermined and probably would not be determined for a long time." 8.26.13

The possibility of separate, independent and prior collection of "Snowden Files", mentioned by me in these earlier comments, opens the potentiallly new and important avenue for investigation.

In the light of such an elaborate history, the concerns of British investigative agencies expressed in their court testimony (a document most remarkable for its classic patina style and logically laid out substance) are more than justified:

New York Times ignored UK request to destroy Edward Snowden documents

Furthermore, it appears that Snowden himself does not possess the exact knowledge of materials in his vast collection and by now has very little or no control over it.

« Edward Snowden Partied with the Russians in Hong Kong on His 30th Birthday | Main | Why Doesn't Joshua Foust Ever Write About Jacob Appelbaum in the WikiLeaks and Snowden Story? »
"At the time of the speech, in December 2012, he may have already known that Edward Snowden existed, because Snowden supposedly first contacted Glenn Greenwald and then Laura Poitras that time -- and she would have undoubtedly contacted Appelbaum and asked him to help her verify Snowden's claims and encrypt the hacked files involved. Perhaps he even helped create a wish list of what would be best to hack.

But looking at this speech superficially as just one of the literally hundreds of speeches Appelbaum has given all around the world at various hacker fests misses an important point:the Chaos Computer Club has been central to WikiLeaks, to Julian Assange and his colleagues, and to the Snowden affair and his defection to Moscow.

And, as they say, perhaps it is no accident, comrades, becausethe CCC has a history of dealing with the KGB, even selling the KGB hacked files from Western governments for drugs and money. This sensational past is rarely discussedwhen WikiLeaks is covered, and when the question is raised as to how WikiLeaks and Russian intelligence are related. The KGB, of course, has a long history of working through leftist German movements, publishing houses and newspapers and taking advantage of the extensive ties between Germany and Russia throughout history."

Exclusive, Must Read!!! Part 4: Former KGB Colonel Victor Kalashnikov on the Snowden Affair, Russian Penetration of Western Countries, and the Secret History of the Second World War


"According to Kalashnikov there is “a tremendous chain of continuity across all the ideologies from Soviet to Russian,” from the time of Lenin to present day Russia under Vladimir Putin. This continuity helps explain the problems we face today.

The failure of understanding in the West is not merely academic. There is also a failure of the West’s intelligence services and politicians to understand Russia’s continued affinity with Lenin’s terrorist ideas; and this failure of understanding has profound consequences, in Kalashnikov’s view, especially illustrated by the defection to Russia of Edward Joseph Snowden, a former technical contractor for the United States National Security Agency (NSA) and a former employee of the Central Intelligence Agency.

“How was it that the plane to South America with Snowden didn’t have Snowden? Who leaked that disinformation?” asked Kalashnikov. “And Putin is making tremendous gains all the time in this situation. He is the big winner because there is now tension between the U.S. and NATO, between the U.S. and Latin America. We may speculate that’s why Mrs. Napolitano [of Homeland Security] was fired.”

I asked Kalashnikov about Snowden’s revelations that the United States is monitoring international telephone and internet traffic. He replied scornfully, “Everyone knows that all major intelligence services are monitoring phone and internet traffic. This is no secret. And making such gains out of nothing, I must confess it is a huge achievement for Moscow! Your side keeps losing, and losing. With the landing of the Bolivian plane in Austria, I must say, somebody submitted the wrong information.”

As for Snowden’s judgment or status, Kalashnikov said, “The Russians are going to exploit Snowden again and again. He seems to have no understanding as to what he is doing. Russia is not a friendly country to the United States. Presently the Russian armed forces have conducted the biggest military exercises since the collapse of the Soviet Union, involving 160,000 men, and if someone thinks it’s just a show, well, they are mistaken.”

Kalashnikov sees the present international situation as colored by Western misunderstandings. If Snowden wasconfused and disorientedenough to flee to Russia, not realizing he was running into the arms of a hostile state, the United States intelligence community proved unequal to the task of stopping him.

Moscow’s forte has been the control of countries through agent networks.

It was Moscow’s way – the Bolshevik way – to infiltrate and manipulate all important countries in a constant effort to bend their policy to fulfill Moscow’s goals. “Russian intelligence was very successful,” said Kalashnikov.

This control offers the possibility of undermining the security of any targeted nation during a military crisis or war.

According to Kalashnikov the Cold War did not end in 1991. “Putin was installed into power with a special purpose in mind,” he explained. “Putin was installed to facilitate the restoration of the Russian Empire in a new shape, not necessarily as a territorial unity, but as a more profitable formation with a near abroad and much else besides.”

Bit by bit the old empire is being reassembled. “Penetration is growing in Bulgaria and the Czech Republic, and growing in Poland and Germany as well,” noted Kalashnikov. “Look, Georgia is already back, and Armenia is more Russian than Belarus. Did you know that Russian missiles tests are conducted in Kazakhstan? Ukraine is a big issue, of course, and is quite controversial. Here the method is to control certain strategic points while leaving the population alone.”

The Cold War continues and few care to notice. The Soviet Imperium is put back together, piece by piece."

Snowden's mental illness more obvious
"Ecuadorian President Raphael Correa and Putin have figured out that Snowden’s talking crazy, especially knowing, if granted asylum, he couldn’t be trusted not to embarrass their governments. Snowden’s grandiosity, seeing himself as the world’s savior, reveals his clinical sickness, prompting foreign officials to discount his intentions and deny his asylum applications.
Anointing himself the world’s savior against government spying is laughable. Foreign leaders have seen through Snowden’s delusions and grandiosity, saying, in effect, we wouldn’t touch this guy with a 10-foot pole. What’s tragic is how the liberal news media fails to report his obvious breakdown, lending credibility to his actions, much like they do WikiLeak’s founder Aussie-born Julian Assange, currently holed up in London at the Ecuadorian embassy. What Assange and Snowden share in common is not their noble whistleblower motives but rather an attempt to blackmail governments. Putin and Correa have figured out today’s finger points at the U.S., tomorrows would be Russia or Ecauador. Traveling with WikiLeak’s activist Sarah Harrison has lent Snowden more credibility than he deserves. When you look at his public statements it’s clear that he’s gone over the deep-end.
What Snowden needs is a psychiatric evaluation, appropriate medication and to face the humane side of the American justice system, where his lawyers will allow him a defense of his outrageous behavior, including proving clear signs of mental illness."

Mike Nova comments: "Vovchick" obviously enjoys holding his new valuable trophyby the gills(in Russian: "держать за жабры"), "a shark, or rather a pike of the American Imperialism", along with its, the trophy's, rather fishy embodiment and spirit in the rather mysterious multiple personalities of Mr. E. Snowden-etc.-s. And he looks like he likes what he sees to the end of his tail.


Why Putin Is Loving the Snowden Affair- The Atlantic

The Russian leader enjoys humiliating Washington, so the Obama administration shouldn't expect much help from him in nabbing the NSA leaker.
During his 13 years in power, Vladimir Putin has demonstrated a fondness for detaining all kinds of dissidents: rich ones, like the imprisoned tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky; pop culture ones, like the band Pussy Riot. So Putin must be at least somewhat sympathetic to Washington's desire to arrest America's most prominent dissident, Edward Snowden. In remarks on Tuesday, Putin indicated that he didn't want the National Security Agency leaker to remain in a transit zone at a Russian airport, saying "the sooner he chooses his final destination, the better it is for him and Russia."
At the same time, however, Putin said he wasn't going to extradite Snowden. And somewhere behind that cold, Slavic poker face must lurk a serious temptation to keep Snowden around for awhile. Because as much as Putin likes to crack down on dissidents, he also appears to enjoy "continuing to stick his thumb in [America's] eye," as Arizona Sen. John McCain told CNN Tuesday, calling the Russian president a "old KGB colonel apparatchik that dreams of the days of the Russian empire." Beyond that, the potential espionage gold mine Snowden represents has to make the mouth of that old KGB colonel water. (With what he could possibly reveal about the NSA's global surveillance system, Snowden makes Aldrich Ames look like a piker.)
