Smart business model.
To change topics a bit, anyone else feel like this Snowden interview is
annoying as hell with little information?
To someone who claims to have had PRIVAC access to multi-agency networks
sure does seem to talk about himself and his opinions a lot.
I’m pissed off a bit. This fuckin retard. Excommunicates himself to remain
safe and yet sounds more like a book salesman rather than someone with such
luxurious access privilege to the most powerful intelligence communities in
I’m 1 hour into this interview and I’m not reading one paragraph of this
asshat’s book. Even if I found a free pdf file. He sounds like a robot.
If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. Maybe my expectations are too
