Dear Friend of America's Survival:

We have created a new section on our website devote to the Snowden case. It is on the left hand side on our home page www.usasurvival.org and can be found here. It shows Edward Snowden behind bars.

Meanwhile, the Russian disinformation and propaganda apparatus is working overtime.

In a story on how the Moscow media have embraced Edward Snowden, the New York Times reports:

On programs that were hastily arranged and broadcast on the two largest federal channels, he [Snowden] was compared to the dissident Andrei Sakharov, to Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and to Max Otto von Stirlitz, a dashing fictional double agent from Soviet television. He was described as "the man who declared war on Big Brother and got stuck in the transit zone," and as "a soldier in the information war, who fights, of course, on the side of Russia, or maybe the side of China."

The Times also reports that, on one program:

Others speakers, like Veronika Krasheninnikova, urged Russians to rally around Mr. Snowden, noting the 60th anniversary this month of the execution of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, who were convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage.

The Rosenbergs were guilty as hell of being Soviet spies and were executed by the U.S.

Don't forget that Russian President Vladimir Putin, a former Soviet KGB officer, had praised the Russian spies -- the Rosenbergs -- who stole U.S. atom bomb secrets. Putin said, "You know, when the States already had nuclear weapons and the Soviet Union was only building them, we got a significant amount of information through Soviet foreign intelligence channels."

The Times story goes on:

One program featured a panel of legendary counterintelligence agents, including a man famous for meeting with Lee Harvey Oswald a few months before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Their discussion often turned to the subject of American spying on Russia. Mr. Korotchenko, one of the guests, made the case that most of the major American consulting firms in Moscow were actually "structural units of American intelligence," including the National Security Agency.

Lee Harvey Oswald was a Marxist and Soviet/Cuban agent who assassinated JFK.

Are the Russians sending a message through this? You bet they are.
