Poor Photoshop, but the message is clear.
Movie producer and director Oliver Stone released his well-publicized anti-US INTEL movie: "Snowden." Stone joins Michael Bay in releasing movies with sharp and often unsubstantiated innuendo incorporated as (movie) fact. Once we leave Bay's very successful action thriller brands and arrive at Bay's take on the tragedy of the Libyan Consulate attacks and the death of four American's in service to our nation, it is impossible to avoid Bay's insertion into US politics for ticket sales and to stake a claim on our psyches with his ideology. His movie "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi" is (or was) a clear effort to join criticism of Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration's handling of the Benghazi consulate and related post-attack communication.
Oliver Stone also has a history of movie production with a core theme of political expose`"Born On The Fourth of July" and "Platoon" (as well as many other best-selling non-political expose`..eg. "Scarface"). Stone's effort to join Edward Snowden's INTEL treason with his perception of a political crusade against the NSA and the US government, according to reliable insiders, is a gross failure.
Chris Inglis, former NSA deputy director, was approaching retirement as Snowden perpetrated his INTEL treason and ran off to China Hong Kong with an ultimate mission of arriving in Putin's Russia. Inglis recently sat for an interview with Next Gov dot com writer Charles Dharapak.

The new Oliver Stone film, "Snowden," promises to tell the true story of contractor Edward Snowden in his quest to expose a National Security Agency program that could allegedly track all forms of digital communication. Even with my limited perspective as a journalist who covered that event, I knew enough to spot dozens of historical and technical inaccuracies while watching the film. But I wanted to see just how badly the facts were mangled, so I sat down with Chris Inglis, who was the deputy director of the NSA during the incident.
“The film was grossly incorrect technically, but that was not the most egregious thing about the movie,” Inglis said. “It’s that it was spiritually incorrect. It was well wide of conveying a true sense of how the NSA purports itself, on what its role was and on what Snowden’s role was.”Full article linked here.
No matter the spin or the entertainment twist, Edward Snowden is no national hero. How do we know Snowden's INTEL theft didn't contribute to the current proliferation of Putin hack success in support of Trump for President?
