U.S. Said to Explore Possible China Role in Snowden Leaks Bloomberg. Does this look as desperate to you as it does to me? This story broke more than two weeks ago. I guarantee the NSA has been all over every communication Snowden made that they can lay their hands on prior to his departure from Hawaii. They would have been screaming from rooftops by now if they had any real evidence of ties to evil foreign powers (you’d at least hear security state mouthpieces like Feinstein making claims that they’d seen damning evidence). So it’s not hard to guess that anything they try to trot out will be innuendo or tarted up.
