Glenn Greenwald is a Funny Man


But I'm not sure which of today's little Twitter skits is funnier.

Is it the sheer blunt-force fatuousness of Glenn Greenwald insisting that the guy who ran barefoot through America's most secret intelligence data, then stole a bunch of it, then got a new job at another firm for the expressed purpose of stealing more of it --
Edward Snowden has admitted he deliberately went to work for the US intelligence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton in order to harvest highly classified evidence of the National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance programs that he hoped to expose. 
"My position with Booz Allen Hamilton granted me access to lists of machines all over the world the NSA hacked. That is why I accepted that position about three months ago," he told Hong Kong's South China Morning Post during an interview on June 12 that was published on Tuesday.
-- then beat it out of the country and into the loving arms of Mother Russia, does not in any way represent a "clearance failure" on the part of the people who gave Mr. Snowden the keys to Candyland?



Or is it Mr. Greenwald bitching about other people conflating unlike individuals and events in order to get their partisan smear on?
Actually, I completely agree with the latter, which is why seeing it fly off the keyboard of this guy
is so fucking adorable.
