The evidence indicates that the NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden may be a Chinese agent.
From America’s Survival;
Read this interview with former CIA officer Robert Baer on CNN:
FREDRICKA WHITFIELD: And apparently he was formally a technical assistant for the CIA. He has been working for a defense contractor, one that has offices in Atlanta, Hawaii, as well as in Virginia. And he has apparently been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of one of those contractors. So, he clearly had access to this kind of information and reveals that he thought it was the right thing to do in which to reveal it. But that he chose Hong Kong to, in which to flee, to find safe haven, tells you what about maybe the support that he might be getting, about taking this information and publicizing it?
BAER: Well, here’s the problem, is that Hong Kong is controlled by Chinese intelligence. It’s not an independent part of China at all. You know, I’ve talked to a bunch of people in Washington today in official positions and they are looking at this as a potential Chinese espionage case. And I’m not saying this because I disagree or agree or believe it had enough prisms is necessarily a good thing or this whole program. It is simply that it was unwise of him to go to Hong Kong to do this.
On the face of it, it looks like it is under some sort of Chinese control, especially with the president meeting the premier today. You have to ask what’s going on. I mean, China is not a friendly country and every aspect of that country is controlled, so why Hong Kong? Why didn’t he go to Sweden? Or if he really wanted to make a statement, he should have done it on Capitol Hill. I’m, you know, we don’t know yet, but you can count on it the FBI and the CIA is looking at this now as potential counterintelligence problem.
WHITFIELD: And if indeed Hong Kong finding refuge there would make it very difficult for the United States to actually extradite him. Given that the president of the United States and the president of China have been meeting all weekend long, you have to wonder whether the dialogue is changing about how and which the U.S. would be able to get their hands on Edward Snowden, how they would be able to strike some sort of a chord or agreement so that the department of justice or other entities or agencies would be able to pursue him.
BAER: We’ll never get him from China. There is not a chance. He will disappear there. He won’t be able to go anywhere else. I can’t believe a TV interview was done there in Hong Kong without some sort of knowledge of the Chinese. They’re not about to send him to the United States and the CIA is not going to render him, as he said in the tape, is not going to try to grab him there. It is not going to happen.
It almost seems to me that this was a pointed affront to the United States on the day the president is meeting the Chinese leader, telling us, listen, quit complaining about espionage and getting on the internet and you know, our hacking. You are doing the same thing. I can see the Chinese doing that.
