Edward Snowden on Joe Rogan's podcast;
Its not really an interview, Joe pretty much let Snowden do stream of conciousness for close to 3 hours. Long, but quite interesting. After my first pass through, I don't have any firm conclusions, just observations.
First observation is that I want to read a reasonably objective 3rd party analysis of the material Snowden leaked; what was damaging (or not) to field HUMINT, etc.
Second observation is that Snowden is very partisan even though he maintains his apolity. He avoided criticism of pretty much all Dems and particularly Obama. And no mention of the data collection efforts of the Clinton admin; for Snowden, evil began in Jan 2001 and suspended in Jan 2009.
Third observation is that he consistently refers to the IC and FBI as Deep State even though he is unequivocally left of center and anti-Bush. And talks about the dilemma that incoming POTII face; go along with the Deep State, or face opposition that will undermine the WH. Ironically, he didn't have anything bad to say about Trump.
Fourth observation; Snowden presents a very good image of Ron Wyden.
