Did he even have access?

Many funny things come out of Washington. This week with the Leak of NSA programs I’ve heard a few pundits, congressmen and administration officials say that they didn’t think Snowden would have access to the information he’s talking about. Now I’ve seen Snowden’s job described a System Administrator (SA). If Snowden was a system administrator over the systems that contained these programs, it’s completely possible he’d have quite a bit of access. Do they ever wonder who gives them their user permissions on a system? Who creates their user profiles? It’s the System Administrator.

Now he would still need to be a SA on the right systems but it’s sure possible. I personally don’t think they’d be defecating concrete rectangles if they thought he had no access.

  1. He has no access, because if he did, people might actually believe whatever is coming from his mouth. That might be a problem for some people.
