It's not out of the realm of possibility.

Yea, I don't know.

There is no reason to dismiss this possibility. The way his flight worked-out was so damn odd. His current status, strange too.

I never was of one mind on him. He is no hero, no tech genius, no liberator of data. He also put right in our faces information that many knew was there all along.

Sergei Tretyakov warned the US that this kind of thing would happen years ago.

The only people doing security very well is the US military. They are just about the only people that take it seriously end-to-end. Spys of some sort are absolutely necessary to overcome things like air-gap scheme's, and "hacking" is almost never accomplished without physical direct access to inside hardware and information.

We are naive to think that IT is not exactly where spys are coming into the organizations and institutions we need to protect. Surprisingly low-level techs will have (by necessity) the access that is necessary to bypass the best of security plans.

Again, Snowden was no sinner nor saint. Spy, possibly. Regardless it should show us just how vulnerable IT can be.
