6. Ok, thank you for this. That tells me a lot, too. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it all,

as we all are, no matter which side of the debate here we might be on at this moment or ever. But knowing the nature of the job helps me. I was trying to figure out how he just had *that much stuff (to the extent he had/has). Here's another question, that brings up: I was reading his bio on a few different web sources, and so far it sounds *so sketchy it makes me believe he was CIA or something the entire time. How on earth does our government, at the highest time of national security in its' 238-year history, hire a kid with his sketchy background to handle the most secretive program ever? It just doesn't make sense to me. Do you think he was goaded into it as a patsy by those who hired him, as there was no other way to "reveal" the program to the masses? Like, do you think they wanted to blow the lid off to let the steam out of the pressure cooker, knowing we would have a debate next but condition us through all the tricks in their black bag of totally unrelated-to-terrorism tricks? You know, the old-school social engineering, public opinion, all manner of television theatrics, etc I realize that's a little off-topic from my original post, and I may post this separately, but enquiring minds want to know. (My mom has told me a number of times as an adult that when I was a child I was the most inquisitive child she had ever seen, but that's an aside). Question comes up because I whatever else we have debated here, I'm trying to figure out whether he's the smartest, most naive person ever in history or if he's the dumbest guy in the world to have ever knocked on the door at the NSA, and when he arrived the PTB said "Here's our patsy"...
