Edward Snowden is a thirty-something who leaked top-secret documents that exposed the existence of a surveillance state run amok. Before there was a Snowden, there was former Navy admiral John M. Poindexter lurking in Dumbo administrations from Dutch to The Dubster as a national security specialist. When Iran-Contra got hot, Poindexter left Dutch's White House and went to work for the National Security Agency. Many of the documents released by Edward Snowden contained data gathered at the direction of Poindexter. If this is a (fair & balanced) twisted tale of deceit, so be it.
