    wouldn't he need to have been a spy in the first place?

    He was a IT guy. Yeah, he had security clearances, but so do the janitorial staff and clerical help at the CIA and NSA facilities.

    That doesn't make them spies. Valerie Plame was a spy. A real one.

    •  I was using spy loosely. (0+ / 0-)

      And seriously, many of the most damaging spies ain't high up, they are more regular joes in 'communications'

      You don't need the president if you've got the president's secretary.

        talked as if she believed her job was actually to be president, surely you would start to wonder about the credibility of what she had to say, right?

        Snowden described himself as a spy.

      •  So how do you explain Snowden (0+ / 0-)

        talking to Laura Poitras in January? Before he worked there.

        "So how did this all begin?"
        LP: I was originally contacted in January, anonymously.

        " By Edward Snowden?"
        LP: Well, I didn’t know who it was.
